Default Baking and smoking

Ok, this is Q-talk because I was smoking about 50 lbs of meat while I was baking bread....

I made my grandma's recipe for yeast bread, and tried out something new to me. I got some cinnamon filling from King Arthur flour that has dry shortening in it. You just add 1 tbsp of water per 1/4 cup filling.

I rolled out the dough for a loaf of bread to be about 8" X 24", then spread the goop on the dough, leaving a 1" border along one of the 8" sides. From the opposite side, I rolled it up, then let it rise before baking. This stuff is like the Cinnabon filling... Great, and goopy, and yum.. I'm going to try go make it myself, though, with muscovado sugar, fresh cassia and dry shortening if I can find it... probably just blend it with butter if I can't.

Muscovado sugar (also called Barbados or moist sugar) : Muscovado sugar, a British specialty brown sugar, is very dark brown and has a particularly strong molasses flavor. The crystals are slightly coarser and stickier in texture than "regular" brown sugar. Light and Dark brown muscovado sugars contain molasses; the darker the color is, the more molasses and therefore the stronger the flavour. They are used in the same way as light and dark brown soft sugars. (from http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/MuscodiaSugar.htm)


If that's too strong, I'll just go with some turbinado.

jeff, don't you think it would make great cinnamon rolls?

Zingerman's has it for $4/lb for light muscovado
http://www.zingermans.com/Product.pa...ductID=P%2DSUG
Chefshop.com has it for $5.49/1.2 lbs for dark.
http://chefshop.com/Itemdesc.asp?ic=0080&eq=&Tp=
But Amazon has 2.8 lbs for $12.50, and free shipping over $25. One light, one dark gets you 5.6 lbs for $25

Oh HELL yeah, Curt! Definitely would! Never have seen the point of the light. I love it for the rich molasses flavor. I've tried other brands but the one I get at Dean & Deluca's is the best and always moist. I forget the brand name right now but it's great stuff.

It's similar, but muscovado is kind of considered the best of the unrefined sugars... more stickiness than turbinado.

Jeff, I haven't tried the stuff from D&D, but the stuff at amazon is very good stuff.

That's all plain old brown sugar you buy in the store is. Muscovado is simply a natural (and I assume better flavored) form of brown sugar.

Muscovado is a type of unrefined sugar with a strong molasses flavour. It is also known as Barbados or moist sugar. It is very dark brown in color, and slightly coarser and stickier than most brown sugars. Unlike most brown sugars, which are composed of refined white sugar with molasses added, muscovado takes its flavor and color from the sugar cane juice it is made from. It offers good resistance to high temperatures and has a reasonably good shelf life. The unrefined sugar goes well with coffee and other beverages, and was one of the most prominent export commodities of the Philippines in the 1800s.

Ey Hilo boy, when you say you own #1 Hawaiian Imu, does that mean you own a hole in the ground?

Also, if I wanted to make a Kalua pork for my Kauai in-laws, could I do it in my offset? Should I wrap it in tea leaves? What wood do you recomend? My guess is Hickory.....

Similar but it's very tacky/sticky and it clumps so you have to dry it at a very low heat in an airing cupboard/oven if you want to use it in rubs.

Gives a really deep 'nutty' flavour less harsh than molasses

If you are curious about muscovado, just get some and try it... It's different... Kind of the high end of sugars. It's got a different texture and taste than raw sugar. Instead of a soft clump like brown sugar, it clumps hard, but can be broken up. It's less processed than any other sugar, if I remember correctly.
