    So this time I tried half corn starch and half corn meal. That didn't work out so well as all the corn starch stuck to the slices and not the corn meal...So I went with 1 part corn starch to 3 parts corn meal.. That worked out pretty well



    Threw some Pasta and a cheese sauce together and there ya go


    Gotta say.. they were pretty good in corn meal as well... One thing I did notice, I didn't have to clean the pan out at all. So I guess It's the flour that turns black after a batch or 2...

    Those look great!

    It must be a southern thing, but cornmeal is a little gritty for me.  I sometimes grind it down just a touch and mix in a little flour. I guess I could just buy corn flour, but I don't like it that fine?

    For the burnt part, I am with you.  I quite often omit the flour when braising because of the mess it makes when I want to use the remains to finish the dish. 

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I love FG tomatoes and those look yummy!

    I like to use the Hoovers hush puppy mix.

    It coats the whole slice and has an awesome crunch.
