So irishteabear asked if BBQ Engineer wouldn't mind posting their recipe for biscuits he used during a sausage and gravy recipe using fatties (which looked incredible) http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/sho...t=74577&page=2 If you wanna check it out. But I figured I would maybe start a thread where you could post nice biscuit recipes or tell of a way you use them in some relation to smoked foods. Personally one of my favorite things to do is make several fatties. They freeze and thaw and freeze again perfectly. I love to reheat a fattie by cooking both sides of a slice in a pan and throwing it on a warm biscuit with some fried or scrambled eggs, and cheese if applicable. Damn any fastfood breakfast piece of processed junk when you can so easily make yourself a delicious, cheap heavenly breakfast sandwich all your own. I am guilty (as most probably are) of buying the kind at the store that scare you half the time when you twist the tube to get it to pop open, filled with precut biscuits, but what are some of your tried and true biscuit recipes or dealings with? I have always been told shortening is key to flakyness and must be cut it, but also that several thin layers of dough pressed together then cut will give you flaky layed biscuits. I have made biscuits a few times and they always turn out ok but kind of mediocre. Would love to hear anyones success stories or tips on a great biscuit. Smoked would (of course) be nice but even done in the oven would be nice to try, even something that may seem a bit crazy. Anyone willing to share a few recipes or ideas?
