This has been quite a challenge but we've learned alot with Basket 3:
We started out with Smokey Cheddar Potatoes
In foil pack and ready for the grill:
About 45 mins later:
Then LuzziAnn went to making Chipotle-Maple BBQ Sauce. This stuff is addictive! Never heard of chipotle in adobo sauce before but this will become a regular around here. We used The heavier maple syrup Sister Kathy's Smoking had sent awhile back. (See pic 1 on the left). Recipe to follow:
Next up was Maple Cornflake Chicken Fingers! Recipe to follow. I had no idea cornflakes could make such a good breading. For this one we used the delicious maple syrup Brother Diesel Dave sent. It blended well with the chicken. Here is a pic of the breading and dipping assembly line:
Ready for the oven:
On to Basket 2. Grilled Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto ham with Parmesan cheese:
Wrapped and on the grill. This ham is paper thin and it was not easy but the taste was worth it.:
Off the grill:
Where's the BEEF??? Right here:
On for a high heat sear:
Please use the photo below for entry. It's Mardi Gras season here so LuzziAnn added king cake. When it all came together it looked like this.:
