Paula Disbrowe shows home cooks how to elevate everyday meals with seductive, smoky flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for smoking meats, fish, poultry, vegetables, nuts, grains, pantry staples, and even cocktails on a smoker or grill in as little as 30 minutes.
Featuring an impressive array of smoke-infused recipes that extend well beyond the realm of rib joints, Thank You for Smoking shows home cooks how easy it is to rig a gas or charcoal grill or use a backyard smoker to infuse everything you love to eat–from veggies and greens to meat and fish–with a smoky nuance. Encompassing a wide range of recipes easy enough for weeknight cooking like Ginger Garlic Chicken and San Antonio-Style Flank Steak Tacos, as well as longer smokes like Smoky Chuck Roast with Coffee and Whiskey or Holiday Ham with Red Boat Salt, this varied collection also includes ideas for smoking vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds for the kind of fresh, plant-based dishes people want to eat right now: Smoked Farro with Wild Mushrooms and Halloumi, Swiss Chard Slab Pie with Smoked Peppercorn Crust, and Smoked Chickpeas with Spinach and Saffron Yogurt. And because firing up dinner is best enjoyed with an adult beverage, this complete guide also helps you set up your bar for modern smoke-kissed cocktails.
