… about an exclusively Kosher BBQ Comp that got me thinking about something that has been bugging me for a while now. I have some of the best neighbors you could ask for and we get together and cook and hang out like most neighbors do, however my next door neighbor is Jewish and is not into the pork. They are not strictly Kosher, but I have no idea what is considered acceptable that I could BBQ besides straight up beef. I know that I could just ask him, but I would like to do something unexpected for them because they deserve it. I also want for it to have a distinct BBQ “theme”.
I would love to hear some ideas that I could use for our next Q .
I am glad that I inspired you. I do not personally keep a kosher home, and I regularly BBQ for friends that do not eat pork. There are several things that come to mind. Brisket - the whole cut, point and flat. A Butcher's cut or Hanger steak. The hanger steak was one of my first smokes. It has excellent flavor and a relatively short cook time. You may also want to try a spatchcock chicken or a turkey. If you can find it - special order - get some lamb. I love the flavor. While I have not personally smoked a lamb shoulder (Think Lamb Boston Butt) I have had it several times and it is excellent. Lastly, smoke a salmon and bring it over with some bagels and a schmear of cream cheese. They will love you for it.
