Smokers Welcome: Try This at Home

Smoking at home, on the stovetop? A lot of people are doing it to great effect, based on this New York Times article.

"WINTER does strange things to grill lovers cooped up in city kitchens. They start daydreaming about smoldering hardwood.

Chefs around town seem to have that same impulse. Lately they have been smoking everything in reach — onions, tomatoes, chicken, fish, maple syrup. Some invest in professional indoor smokers, but the majority do what a home cook can easily do, rig a roasting pan with aluminum foil or use inexpensive gear like Camerons stovetop smokers.

After a 20-minute smoke and then a flash in a hot pan, chicken thighs taste like they are straight off the grill, but smokier, juicier and — depending on how you get your smoke — more interesting.

And the technique fills kitchens not with smoke, but with a cozy aroma, like potpourri, with Pavlovian effects."

Includes recipes for:


  • Tea-Smoked Chicken Thighs With Pomegranate Glaze

  • Smoked Catfish Salad

  • North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Food News: Great steaks have common thread -- fat

So, you're having a BBQ for your 4th of July or summer get together and are wondering "What should I get for the grill?" This piece from the Boston Globe offers some good tips for your fiery endeavor.

"Independence Day is the most popular holiday for grilling, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, and steaks are second in popularity only to burgers.

Marbling is the first thing to consider when buying steaks for home, LoSurdo says. While filet is the most popular cut at his restaurant, he prefers the rib eye, sometimes known as Delmonico -- a fattier cut that comes from the lower part of a cow or steer's back."

"LoSurdo notes that per-pound prices for steaks can range from a few dollars to upwards of $20. He advises choosing ``the best thing you can afford... His personal steak preference is a "center cut" from the middle of the loin, an inch thick or better. Go for a bone-in steak if possible because it will have more flavor."

Recipe News: Outdoor recipe: Campire Chili

"Lorie Roach, of Buckatunna, Miss., earned the title of America's best campfire chef at a Redwood Creek wines campfire-cooking contest. Her prize included a $10,000 ''adventure grant'' and a $5,000 donation to the national park of her choice.

Her winning recipe - sweet onion, apple and bratwurst campfire chili - is a one-pot wonder that's ideal for cooking outdoors. Most of the prep work can be done at home. Roach recommends freezing the bacon and bratwurst (which can be sliced first), to store in an insulated bag or with an ice pack. The cook will need a Dutch oven with lid, and a wooden spoon. "
