Title: Iron Chef Bradley VIII Turn-in Pictures (Voting will be until February 6th)
Post by: Tenpoint5 on January 10, 2011, 10:53:19 AM
Basic Iron Chef rules:

Be creative on your recipes.

It can be as simple as a new ABT or a recipe that would take a snooty waiter in a fancy-schmancy restaurant 10 minutes to describe.
 
At least 80% of the cook time must be done in the Bradley Smoker, grill or other cooking method. Up to 20% of the cook time can be done on the stove, oven,

Use any spices or pre-made BBQ sauces, or other goodies as you wish.

The recipe is not limited to just the 3 main ingredients. Your pantry is open and anything is fair game to be used in your recipe. As long as the meat and two other ingredients are in one dish. ie...one bite gets all three ingredients.

It can be breakfast, brunch, lunch, or supper, or midnight snack.

Voting will be done in the form of a poll, which will be posted on May 31st and will close June  4th.  You will only have to pick your favorite and vote for that one. All of the Money Shot Pictures will be posted in the very last thread when the voting opens.

PLEASE REFRAIN FROM COMMENTING IN THIS THREAD UNTIL AFTER ALL THE ENTRIES HAVE BEEN POSTED. This will allow everyone an equal chance in the voting. Please continue commenting in the Ingredients and Smack talking thread.

I just happen to be on line when I got the "ready to post" message.

I went with a fru-fru dish.  No name as of yet but here it is.  Doing a variation of cordon blue.  I used the pork filled with blue cheese and caramelized apples.  As a support team I decided to go with some smoked asparagus wrapped in prosciutto (pork butt, sort of) and drizzled with a blue cheese bechamel.

And the supporting players -

(http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/8012/icbviii20.jpg)

I started with an apple cider brine.

(http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/7785/icbviii02.jpg)

While brining I started the apple part of the filling.  I used breaburn apples.  Just a simple caramelizing in butter to keep the flavors simple.  I did add just a shot of calvados to double up on the apple flavor.

(http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/4058/icbviii03.jpg)

(http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/478/icbviii04.jpg)

(http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/4766/icbviii05.jpg)

Boiled down the rest of the cider for a glaze.

(http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/9639/icbviii09.jpg)

After the brining I pounded out the cut thinner. 

(http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/4131/icbviii06.jpg)

A thin spread of a blue cheese chosen for a mild flavor and creamy texture is spread.  Than a few of the apple pieces.

(http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/14/icbviii07.jpg)

A quick roll up and it's ready for the grill.

(http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/6992/icbviii08.jpg)

A quick roll of the asparagus in the prosciutto.

(http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/9610/icbviii21.jpg)

A toss in the smoker to get just a touch of smoke (it is the Bradley forum after all) before they go onto the grill.

(http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/2707/icbviii22.jpg)

While it is getting some smoke it's time to get the sauce going.  A simple bechamel sauce.

(http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/5918/icbviii23.jpg)

(http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/7201/icbviii24.jpg)

(http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/9296/icbviii25.jpg)

(http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/2491/icbviii26.jpg)

And the finished sauce.

(http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/5228/icbviii27.jpg)

Using the green Egg to get some color.  The other two are just extras from the butt.  Why waste the brine?

(http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/25/icbviii10.jpg)

Nicely browned.

(http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/1290/icbviii11.jpg)

Dinner is served -

I made a Pulled pork sandwich with homemade bread, my oven element is broke so I used my Ceramic oven. I also made a homemade Carolina BBQ sauce with a kick of Hatch chili powder. I fried some sweet potato waffle fries accompanied by a sour cream and BBQ dipping sauce.
The Sauce…..
Started with three Roma Tomatoes
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/003-26.jpg)
Smoked them in the Bradley for 1.5 hours with Alder
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/006-24.jpg)
Peeled the Tomatoes and added Apple Cider vinegar, spices, then took the stick blender to them and boiled to desired consistency
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/012-6.jpg)
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/014-5.jpg)
Then I put it in a fancy squeeze bottle for later use
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/016-2.jpg)
The Pork Butt…..
I decided to go with a small butt
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/001-50.jpg)
I covered it with spices and slathered it in mustard and let it rest in the fridge overnight
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/007-23.jpg)
In the smoker for an undetermined amount of time with Apple smoke
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/009-10.jpg)
It ended up taking Ten hours and fifteen minutes to reach 200° F.; I had anticipated 6 hours tops, wrong again!!
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/001-51.jpg)
The pork butt resting on the counter and then finally pulled.
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/002-45.jpg)
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/005-26.jpg)
The Bread…..
Mixed the Water, Yeast, Milk, Sugar, Butter, Salt, Egg and flour then threw it in a greased bowl to rise a bit.
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/018-5.jpg)
Then I shaped them and let them rise a bit more for twenty minutes
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/022.jpg)
While the dough was rising I got the ceramic grill going for some baking
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/020-1.jpg)
On the ceramic grill in Bake Mode
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/023-2.jpg)
10 minutes at 400 degrees and they were done
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/027.jpg)
Then on a rack to cool
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/029-2.jpg)
The Apple…..
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/009-11.jpg)
The Side…..
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/008-13.jpg)
The Sandwich…..
 Fried Apples and Sauce
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/012-7.jpg)
Pulled pork and Blue Cheese
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/013-6.jpg)
Slaw and more sauce
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/015-7.jpg)
Entry Picture….. Hill Billy Pork Sammich & Sweet tator waffle Fries
(http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/Keymaster_2010/020-2.jpg)
