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. 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 July 16 and will close July 19th.  You will only have to pick your favorite and vote for that one.

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.


WTS southwestern breakfast roll

1 smoked/grilled ham steak, diced
3 slices mesquite smoked bacon, crumbled
3 potatos, peeled and fried
3 eggs, scrambled
2 jalapenos, diced
roasted red bell peppers, diced
smoked cheddar, colby, firejack cheese, grated
chunky salsa, this was Pace

Southwestern Pizza Dough (for the Breadman)

1 1/4 cups warm water
3 tbsp oil
2 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp dry milk
4 cups bread flour
3/4 cups corn meal
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

Ham Steak, smoked, grilled then diced

Potatos, peeled, diced and fried, salt and pepper

Pizza dough, rolled out

Coated with Salsa

Now just start layering all of the other ingredients

Roll up tight and brush with olive oil, don't forget to crimp the ends

Set your grill up for indirect heat, if using a gas grill just turn one burner on and place your roll on the opposite side, rub the grate will oil, or use some grilling spray.  Close the lid and bake till golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.  About halfway through the cook time or as one side begins to take on color, rotate so as the other side bakes evenly.  Keep a close eye on it through this process.

Let rest for just a minute or two, then slice and serve!

Its amazing what one can accomplish when one doesn't know what one can't do!

Individual Meat & Potato Lovers Deep Dish Pizza

Start getting the ingredients ready.....  Potatoes, meatballs & italian sausage into the smoker for 40 minutes of oak, continue cooking until done  (Moinkballs were a snack)

Make potato deep dish dough, use 7.5 oz per pizza  (6" pan) (dough makes several pizzas)

1 - 2 medium potatoes, baked in bradley, cooled & grated , use 1 1/3 cups
3 1/2 oz all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
1 3/4 tsp salt
1 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil

combine flour, yeast & salt in food processor,  add water - process until shaggy ball,  add potato & oil, process until smooth & sticky.  Oil dough, place in bowl & let rise about 1 hour.

After an hour cut off 7.5 oz &  press dough out into oiled pan.  On top of dough add 4 oz of sliced mozzerella

More ingredient prep - amounts will be below.....  in fry pan on grill ...  fry bacon, potatoes, onions, red pepper until potatoes are golden.  When almost done add butter & minced garlic

Mix filling together (per pizza)(first 4 ingredients were from fry pan above):
1 slice thick sliced bacon, diced
1/2 partially baked potato, diced
1 oz chopped onion
1 oz red pepper, diced
2 1/2 oz HAM, diced
1 oz pepperoni , sliced thick and diced
2 1/2 oz italian sausage, sliced
2 1/2 oz meatballs (cut each into 8 pieces)
2 oz smoked pepperjack cheese

Into the Bradley at the max temp it will get to for about an hour

Top with additional shredded smoked pepperjack & mozzarella cheese & then to the grill until everything all brown & happy

A slice ......................  potato, onion, red pepper, ham, bacon, sausage, meatball & pepperoni pizza


Here it is,

Pork Wellington
AKA Pigs in a Blanket
1 lb of Sausage
2 slices of ham about 1 to 1-1/2 lbs
2 lbs of bacon
3 jalapenos
1 large (or 3 small) Potato
¾ cup chopped mushrooms
½ cup onions
¼ cup of cilantro
3-4 cloves of garlic
4-5 cups of flour (or less if you are making a smaller size)
1 egg (for wash)
Bad Byron's Butt Rub, Jan's Rub, or what ever is your flavor.
2 hours worth of smoke (or your taste)
Core jalapenos and finely chop onions,  mushrooms, and garlic.  Sautee with a little butter, salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside.  Chop cilantro, set aside.
Peel and julienne the potato.  Bake or fry into potato sticks, set aside.
Brown 1 lb of bacon, chop, set aside.
Spread out a layer of plastic (2 wide).  Layout 1 lb of bacon in a weave on the plastic.  Spread 1 lb of sausage out on another 2 wide layer of plastic.  Season with Rub to taste.   Spread the sautéed onion, mushrooms, garlic, cooked bacon, and cilantro on top of the sausage.  Roll the sausage into a tight log.
Place the sausage log onto the bacon weave and tightly roll the bacon around the sausage and tuck ends under weave or pin with tooth picks as required.
Place into the smoker and smoke high temp until an IT of 160 deg (or to your desired doneness) and bacon is crisp on the outside.  If the IT is reached and the bacon is not crisp, put the roll on the grill, Big Easy  or under the oven broiler.
While the log is in the smoker, prepare the pizza dough with your favorite recipe.  I used Deb's recipe with the Sir Lancelot flour .
Let flour raise.

When log is done and bacon is crisp, prepare the egg wash, punch down the pizza dough and roll out.  Place log on dough and wrap dough around the log.  Cut off excess dough for a pizza in a few days.   Add a little egg wash to the edges of the dough and press the edges together.   Coat surface of dough with the egg wash and grill or bake at 450 or higher to brown and crisp the dough.   Should only take about 15 minutes or less.
Drizzle a little Korean BBQ sauce on the surface to taste and garnish with additional cilantro.

Pork Wellington Pictures
Click to enlarge.
Base set of ingredients.

Sautéed some onion,  jalapeño,  garlic, and mushrooms. 

Julienned the potato and baked it in the oven to crisp them up.   

Added some cooked bacon and the previous ingredients for the stuffing, along with some seasoning, bad byron's butt rub and a bit of Jan's Rub.

I had put the ham slices in the smoker (had some ribs and pistachios already going) for 1 hour of apple, then sliced them up as thin as possible to aid in rolling.

I needed something to hold it all together and not having any Parma Ham (my first choice) or pancetta, I decided to go with a bacon weave.

Wrapped it up in plastic and popped it into the freezer for just a few minutes while the smoker was heating.  Out of the fridge and all wrapped up  ready for the smoker.

While the smoker was going, time to get the pizza dough made up. 

Post smoking.  Had about 2 hours of smoke at 240 deg and then bumped up the set temp to 320 so the bacon would crisp up as well as get the sausage inside cooked.   The IT went to about 160 deg. as it rested.  I put it on an elevated  rack in the oven to keep it warm and allow the fat to continue to drip off.

Dough has finished rising, ready for a punch down and roll out.

Ready  to roll up.

Rolled and ready for a quick back in the Big Easy.  OPPS, too long by about an inch to fit into the Big Easy, looks like the Oven will have to do.  Put on an egg wash and off it went for some high heat.

Looking real good, let it rest a few.

Oh YAH.  Nice looking.

Close up of the Picasso.
