wood flavour for CHaCheeB's
« on: February 10, 2006, 10:51:04 pm »
I have only done chacheebs one time so far.  I forget what I used but I remember it was quite smokey and for me to say that is something.  I either had wrong flavour or too much time.  I'm going to use 2 hours this time, any suggestions on the puck type?
Sorry I could not find the original chacheeb thread.

Ooooooooooh Baby...them wuz tasty[:p]

Put on 2 hours of apple pucks exactly.  At 80 min, rotated racks, inserted temp probe, and pushed puck 5 onto burner tip, leaving puck 6 on the #3 position never did put in burn spot, so total was 5 not 6 bisquettes.

Just the perfect smoke power for me.  This was the second time out for chacheebs and my parents and brother were in town.  Compliments like no other dish I've served them.

Thanks again Olds for the recipe, and thank you Owrstrich for the cheeze karma blessing.  Last time bad cheese.  This time good cheese.  No leaks!!!

Provolone kicks butt.  So tasty that stuff.  This time we upped the ante on the chickens with prescuito(sp???) instead of ham.  Not worth the cost, ham is just fine, you cant taste the difference wrapped in chicken and smoked.  I would like to try capicola next time maybe that could be tasted a bit more???

Anyway, great success...pics coming soon I hope.

Chefbill,
One or less.  Two women two men threw in the towel before finishing (with full meal of veggies, rice, and salad).  My brother managed to conquer the whole thing.  They are monsters.

I've never had a name for these things before, but have been doing something very similar for years. I refer to them as those cheezy, chicken thingies. The only difference I do is start with about a 3/4 inch cube of sharp cheddar. I wrap the cheese in the ham. Next I take a whole boneless skinless chicken breast and pound it to a thin uniform thickness ( about 1/4 inch). I fold it up like a pouch and use 2-3 rashers of bacon to hold it together. I found this way keeps the cheez inside where it belongs and not on the drip tray.

Now after looking at this pic, I think I know what's on the menu as soon as this deep freeze breaks.

-45 F with the wind this morning! Brrr.

Those cheezy thingys look real nice guys. Does the bacon turn out crisp or is it rubbery? I was wondering if a quik trip to the broiler / salamander just before seving would be good? I'm thinking you could make them a day or two ahead and smoke cook them early in the day before company arrived. Any suggestions?

Iceman,

I haven't tried these is the BS yet. I have only made them in my old charcoal fired smoker. With those I started slow to get them cooked through. When the chicken was done, the bacon was cooked as well, but was still a little rubbery where the pieces crossed. I usually just cranked the heat for about 15 minutes and that crisped it right up. Another time I was making lots for a backyard bash and needed 30 of them. For those I did them the day before, tossed them in the fridge and then put them under the broiler the next day. Turned out great both ways. One of the best things about this recipe is it is just about impossible to screw up!

OK you sold me. I picked up the grub today and will make them for the big Pres. day this weekend. I'm going to use Fontina cheese (kind of a nutty mild swiss taste) and proscuiutto instead of ham. Thanks for the update.<blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"><i>Originally posted by Muskwa</i>

Hey WTF, I've made these with boneless skinless chicken thighs. I wrap a thin slice of cappicola (hot) around a 1/2 inch cubed piece of aged cheddar, then roll that in the thigh meat and wrap in a bacon slice. I find this method gives you more manageable portions. I usually eat two of em. I plan on making these this weekend for guests on Saturday. I will start with a smoked salmon chowder, then follow with the chicken, a parmesan potato casserole with asparagus and salad. I'm off to my local brewer to pick up a mini keg of IPA.[:D][:p]

That's funny...I told my brother we were eating CHaCheeB's and after two rounds of "huh?" he said "so if I ask for chicken lobsters, you'll know what I'm asking for?"[:)]

I did not cook them hot enough, so the bacon was only good on two and on the ends of the rest, it was undercooked where the overlap bacon touched.  Owrstrich recommended cooking as hot as possible, so next time the slide will be all the way right.
