Default Smoked Onion Rings

This was my supper tonight. :)

I smoked a sliced onion in my drum....with a bit of hickory.

I smoked pretty heavy for a short period of time (about 20 minutes)...didn't want to cook the onions. After they had a some color and were starting to get translucent, I placed them in a baggie and let them chill in the fridge.

Made my beer batter using
1 cup of flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
then added enough beer to make a pancake like batter...

I dipped the rings into flour, then into the batter before frying...

Made a spicy dipping sauce using ketsup, minced chipotles in adobo and minced onion....

They were pretty tasty...

Thanks for checking out my supper. :)

How do you keep both your grill grate and you smoking tray so clean?

Mine have gone brown to black for the most part.

Just wondering.

And the rings looks great.

Thanks for the beer batter recipe.

What a great way to avoid going to hell, by eating onion rings tonight!

Those turned out really good, and the batter is light.....just the way I like it. I know that slicing rings and leaving them in the fridge a few hours dries them and makes fry up nicer, I guess that smoking the rings would do the same thing only add another level of flavor. I'm going to have to try that.

Does anyone use ginger ale instead of beer in batters?
