This was my entry into the Pie Throwdown. I do lots of demo cooks on Facebook and for this reason I am using my Weber. I had a number of questions from people on how to smoke at home when you don't have smoker. Very pleased with it all.


I took the skin off the chicken thighs to really let that smoke come through.

I'm going to grind the broccoli stalk, but I wanted small florets so I trimmed it tight. All of broccoli will be used.

Made a bechamel for my cheese sauce. Then I melted in Gruyere and Gouda away from the heat. Taste and adjust for salt.

Just enough sauce to make this moist but not sloppy. Gruyere and mushrooms are always a match made in heaven. The smoke flavor was really picked up by that cheese sauce as well. The broccoli wasn't overcooked either. Very pleased with how this turned out.
