    I had a whole bird hibernating in the freezer, and a couple of posts this last weekend had me thinking about what I could do with some smoked chicken. When I get going on the weekend, however, I usually end up throwing in one of everything that isn't nailed down, just because I like to experiment. Today I also planned on doing some spare ribs, pork chops, and stuffed sweet bell peppers.

    Membrane removed, trimmed the skirt off of the spare ribs, rubbed everything.

    Spares taking some apple / oak being spritzed with concentrated apple juice and Cap't Morgan. I have always wondered about the posts I see that have a Jack / apple spritz, but I think I have figured it spritz for the ribs, five sprays for me!

    In preparation of smoking the chicken, I brined it the night before and got it rinsed off and rubbed down with a mixture of sesame oil, butter, Cavenders, thyme, and dry mustard. Here it is ready to take some smoke.

    Here are my helpers. The "cow girls" made sure that no bits of 'Que were left on the ground, and entertained me on this beautiful day.

    The rib skirts were ready for a sample. THEY WERE EXCELLENT!

    Drizzled with Sesame oil and rubbed down, the chops are ready to go on.

    The peppers were stuffed with a wild rice / tomato / toasted almond mixture, and capped with a slice of swiss.

    Chops are done.

    Chicken is done. I intend to use the meat for other things, so I didn't crisp the skin...besides, some dumb A$$ left one of the burners on low, and drained my propane cylinder! Wonder who that was Engineer?

    Plated with a chicken leg quarter, couple of ribs, smoked sweet pepper, and some of my favorite spicy sauce from Rudy's BBQ.

    Mrs. Engineer opted for a pork chop with the smoked pepper. Pretty Tasty, and I have found a new (to me) drink...Apple juice and Cap't Morgan!

    That all looked so good. Skirts made my mouth start to water. Haven't tried smoked peppers yet but I will sometime.
    Question about the sesame oil, any particular reason you used sesame? Great idea, just wondering if there was a particular reason.
    Pretty dogs, I should post a picture of Guinness, my mutt I picked up from a shelter on the border or Mexico.
    Oh, points for an excellent Qview.

    I love eating these as appetizers during my smoke. They were awesome...simply awesome!

    I like to use sesame oil, as I like the earthy and nutty taste of it. It adds another layer of flavor...try this, make some popcorn using sesame oil. I love it.

    My dogs are shelter dogs as well...the blue heeler is as pure bred as they come, down to the Bently mark on her forehead. I hope to include at least one photo of them with each Qview that I post...they are really cool, and I hope you will indulge me.
