I found a nice looking chuck roast while shopping this weekend, and thought it might pair well with SR's recipe for cabernet sauvignon bbq sauce. I apologize for the pic quality. I couldn't find my flash disk for the camera, and had to rely on my Motorola Zoom (tablet) to take pics. I prepped some veggies for the sides and some for the sauce:

corn, peeled sweet potatoes, shallots, s--t mushrooms:


Gave the chuck a mustard-based slather, and rubbed it with Dizzy Dust:





Try as I might, I could not get the Xoom to take a focused shot outside, so here's a crappy smoker shot:

corn, sausage, chuck roast, boiled eggs, shallots, s--t mushrooms, sweet potatoes, yellow potatoes:




The eggs and veggies didn't take long:




I began making the cabernet bbq sauce by chopping up the mushrooms and shallots (and garlic), and sauteed them in smoked butter:




One and a half cups of cabernet was added, and the mix was reduced:




Tomato sauce, smoked clover honey, and brown sugar was added and the sauce was blended until smooth:



After adding a little sea salt and black pepper to taste, this was some darn tasty sauce.


I made some smoked deviled egg potato salad, by blending the egg yolks, salt, pepper, mustard, mayo, and sweet relish together:




Then I added the chopped smoked potatoes and egg whites:




Next, I used the corn to make smoked corn pudding:



Added some sugar, flour, heavy cream, melted smoked butter, and eggs:




Smoked corn pudding all done:




The chuck roast got a nice 2.5 hour rest after pulling it off the smoker. I collected the juices in order to remove the fat before readding it back to the meat:






Dinner was served:





The pulled beef was very flavorful and tender, and with the sauce, the sandwich was very delicious. Corn pudding is a favorite of mine and it was nice to have it with a smokey twist.

For dessert, I used the smoked sweet potatoes to make smoked sweet potato pie:






Time for a slice:

Smoked sweet potato pie, with a dallop of smoked vanilla whipped cream:




Definitely good eats.

Sure. Smile

Corn Pudding

Ingredients:


6 Tbs unsalted butter
5 or 6 ears of corn, husked (depending on size)
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c heavy cream or milk
1/4 c flour
1 tsp salt
5 large eggs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the butter in a baking dish (an 8-by-8-inch glass baking dish or iron skillet works well) and slide into the oven so the butter melts while the oven is preheating.

Using a box grater, coarsely grate the kernels off four ears of corn. Use a sharp knife to cut the kernels from the remaining ears. Combine the corn kernels, sugar, cream or milk, flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Lightly beat the five eggs and add to the mixture.

When the oven has preheated and the butter in the baking dish has melted, carefully tilt the melted butter from the baking dish into the corn mixture and combine with a few swift strokes. Then tilt the buttered corn mixture back into the baking dish.

Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, until a golden crust has formed and the interior has set.

EVERYTHING looks great. Your corn looks a lot like the scalloped corn I make except I use cracker crumbs instead of flour, & add some carmelized onions. Good eats Surprised ...
