Hickory Smoked Cordon Bleu with red pepper and garlic marinade
« on: January 16, 2010, 05:04:39 PM »
This is my version of Cordon Bleu a-la Bradley, using chicken thighs with a red pepper and garlic marinade (rub) with four cheese's
3 hours of hickory (all I had) smoked at 220 till they reached a internal temp of 170. Man they were so tasty and tender. had the in laws over for dinner and some fine wine.

Will try post some pics for you all to enjoy.

This one is after is after tenderizing and marinade.
 
wrapping in bacon with after layering with ham and four cheese centers

Rock and rolled time to rest for a little while before firing up the Bradley.

Happy chappy.

about the halfway mark.

Just had to have one with smoke in it.

Finished product with a stir fry.

Just one more from a different angle. Mr Bradley you made me proud !.

Nice looking Bacon wrapped CDB there HA!! Earned you some brownie points with the In-Laws I bet.

I am still getting caught up on reading so I have been behind a few days.  Halifax, this looks awesome!  And I am jealous:  my Cordon Bleus never look so nice and neatly rolled:  there is always SOMETHING pouring out of one end or another.....

Well done - and I'm not talking about cooking time.
