*OFFICIAL ENTRY* - Smoked Corned Beef on Everything Bagel Sammich!
I guess I'll start this one off!:thumb:

I made some Smoked Corned Beef on my WSM Saturday as documented in this thread.

Now I like Reuben's and all, and I'm sure I'll make one with these leftovers at some point, but my FAVORITE sandwich with Smoked Corned Beef or Pastrami is on an Everything Bagel with lots of Mustard!:hungry::thumb::nod:

So here we go. Start with a toasted Everything Bagel...

Add one of your favorite mustards that you think pairs well. This one is a Dijon and the thought of it made my head all fuzzy, as you can tell from the photo.

Now add some of the Smoked Corned Beef.

I think a nice Spicy Brown Mustard is in order for the next step...


It could use some more meat...

Some more of that Dijon...

Now these are some Bread and Butter Jalapeno Pickles that I made a couple months back. I made them by taking a jar of Bread and Butter Pickles and a jar of Jalapenos, then combining the Bread and Butter Pickles (with their pickle juice) and the drained Jalapenos, and then packing back into the jars. Because the Jalapeno juice was drained, there was a lot of space left that was replaced with Sugar to get the whole mix back to the original sweet level of the Bread and Butter pickles and to somewhat tame the Jalapenos and make them into Cowboy Candy. Once this mingles, the Jalapenos are some serious nommage on Nachos, and the Pickles are now even better than before for some major Sandwich excitement.

I think a little more Smoked Corned Beef is a good idea, don't you?

Oh, gotta have more Spicy Brown Mustard.

Served with some Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper Kettle Chips.

It didn't suck!:becky::hungry::nod::thumb:

Mighty fine mustard bagel there biggie :hungry:

deguerre 03-18-2013 02:48 PM

Shouldn't that be in the Small Farking Sammich TD? A bagel? You could have at least gone Dagwood on it.

Still though. I'll have one please.

bigabyte 03-18-2013 02:50 PM

That's a 9x9 platter that is sitting on.:becky: And it's too tall to fit in my mouth. The sandwich is definitely a big'un.:thumb:

deguerre 03-18-2013 02:52 PM

No more that 4" diameter I bet. Poser.

I really need to copy Grail's avatar while posting these...

bigabyte 03-18-2013 02:53 PM

Correction...I measured in case I was using "man" estimates.

It's a 10.5" x 10.5" platter.

I measured another bagel, similar size, it's 6" diameter. Probably about 4" tall on the sammich.

MS2SB 03-18-2013 02:57 PM

Looks good, but that is clearly not an everything bagel, I see sesame & poppy seeds, but no signs of garlic or onion which are standard fixin's for an everything bagel. I'll have to deduct points for falsifying your entry thread.

OK. So it's a medium then.:mrgreen:

bigabyte 03-18-2013 03:00 PM


I think if you look a bit closer you will see irregular shaped pieces for the onion and garlic. Right up front even!:laugh:

Damn...guess I should have put a ruler and some arrows pointing out all the bits on the bagel!:laugh:

MS2SB 03-18-2013 03:16 PM

If there is garlic and onion on there then it is not much and you are clearly using a subpar product. Deducting points for poor ingredient selection!

dig it baby, dig it. :thumb:

Official TD Entry - Big Farkin' Sandwich: A Heroes' Journey
Our story begins in the quiet village of Hunger. A peaceful village which has provided abundant meals to its inhabitants for generations. Delicious meals of smoked meats, grilled vegetables, hearty soups and perhaps its most comforting elixir, gravy, kept the villagers strong, satisfied and free from want.

For more than 33 seasons the villagers of hunger lived tasty, satisfied lives. That was until the evil Lord Diet unleashed his forces upon the tiny village. For more than a fortnight the Lord Diet's minions, lead by Queen Wifey laid waste to the village, burning it's crops, setting free its livestock and extinguishing it's cooking fires. The poor Hungerians, weak and malnourished were on the brink of defeat but their spirit was still strong. They waited patiently for an opportunity to strike back against Lord Diet and banish him from the world. Last night that opportunity presented itself when the ever vigilant Queen Wifey left her post overlooking the village to celebrate her certain victory in the style to which she had become accustomed, cocktails with friends.

The poor starving Hungerians seized upon the opportunity and called forth four heroes from the furthest corners of the Earth to wage the ultimate battle against Lord Hunger and defeat his forces for good. From the South came Chicken Thigh,

From the East Round Steak,

From the West came Pork Chop

And from the North came the most famed warrior in all the land, Naked Fatty.

Our fearless warriors came together on the outskirts of the Village of Hunger and began their preparation for battle. Upon meeting the other Heroes, Naked Fatty left his party to scout the enemy forces amassed on Mt. Traeger.

Chicken Thigh, Pork Chop and Round Steak went through the needler and cast iron crusher to get themselves nice and tender.

When Naked Fatty returned from Mt. Traeger he had been transformed into a browned smokey super warrior. Their was party now complete our intrepid heroes began to assemble their battle armor.

First came

to enhance their flavor, seasoned flour to boost their adhesion, buttermilk for its viscosity and tangy properties and flour and fine cornmeal to help seal in their delicious juices.

Our brave contingent made their way through the Village Hunger and headed to Mt. Traeger where they threw themselves into the heat of battle.

Knowing that the battle would be hard (about 425*) and long (35 minutes) the Hungerians began to prepare their most healing and comforting of potions to welcome their victorious saviors home, fatty & buttermilk gravy.

They began with bacon drippings,

and then added flour to create a roux

When it reached a golden color, buttermilk and chicken base were added along with copious amounts of black pepper.

This was simmered until thick at which point some naked fatty was added for good measure.

The villagers also prepared a victory bed for their embattled heroes, a CWB brushed with bacon drippings and toasted to a golden brown.

As the battle raged on, the worst possible scenario unfolded. Queen wifey returned from her victory party to see her forces under attack. She unleashed her most dastardly weapons to try and keep Lord Diet's forces from being defeated!

Thankfully for the Village Hunger, our courageous heroes had the battle well in hand and were able to fight off this dastardly counter attack. Victory had been secured! Our heroes returned to Village Hunger, browned and hardened from battle, but fully intact.

They mounted their victory bed one at a time, each receiving a shot of rejuvenating Franks Red Hot to aid in their healing.

First came Pork Chop

Followed by Round Steak

Chicken Thigh

And finally our bravest warrior, Naked Fatty

As our heroes settled in to their victory bed the Hungerians smothered them with their most famous concoction, buttermilk fatty gravy,

And tucked them gently under the covers
(Entry Photo)

Victory has never tasted so good.

Do you every fry up your saurkraut for a little brown and carmelization before putting it on? Mouth is watering again. Geez, Biggie, delicious looking sandwich!!
