Smoked Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Discussion in 'Breads' started by smokin relaxin steve, Jun 10, 2010.

  1. Hey all, I havent been on for a bit... we have been pretty busy at work and outside of work, but i still have had time to BBQ lol... This is my first QView w/ the new setup, so bare with me...

    So a Co-Worker's daughter was doing a fundraiser and the catalog had Pizza Kits... I purchased the Buffalo Chicken Pizza (set of 3)... I ate 2 of them over the last 5 months or so (w/ "okay" results) but the last had been sitting in the freezer... this past Friday Night I was trying to figure out what to do for dinner... I decided why not smoke that last buffalo pizza and jazz it up a bit... Had a few Beers in the process and sat in the backyard to relax... ahhhhhh...

    WOW! for a Pre-made crust and partial pre-made topings this was great! way better than the previous 2 i did in the oven... crust was cooked perfect, and the smoke flavore really shown in the taste... I deff doing this again, but next time homemade crust & a bit more chicken... the family LOVED it... I really can not wait to do this again... (any pizza for that matter)... Here are few more pics...

    ***TIP*** take it or leave it, but I have found the very best way to slice a pizza is with cooking scissors

    So like I said earlier I have been busy, but I have one more pic to share... I hosted the Memorail Day party for my friends... Last BBQ I had we smoked so i decided to Dust off the Rotisserie and do a Pork Loin for Memorial Day (also did hot dogs and a few different flavors of Chicken Sausage...) I did not get pics of that day, (tooo much drinking LOL), but i did manage to snap 1 pic of the Pork right after i placed it on the grill... mmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmm this came out GREAT! Thanks for looking!

    That does look good.

    What did you rub on the loin?
     
  3. I marinated it overnight in a Porter Beer, Cranberry Juice, Worchire Sauce, Garlic, Sesame Dressing, Sriracha, some brown sugar... sliced several slits for garlic cloves

    rinsed it off the next morning

    Rubbed it with Yellow Mustard, Lawry's Perfect Blend Pork Rub, Cinnamon, Old Bay, Hot Pepper Flakes, And some Powdered Ranch Seasoning... I forgot how much i love my Rotisserie... Next time i will take more pics... that this was gone with in a couple of hours... I had enough for one sandwich when all was said and done... Got a few txt messages during the following week asking if i had any left for them LOL!

    Now all of this looks quite interesting for sure. Now I see that you like stuff like hot sauce and salad dressings. Now that srirrachi garlic sauce is really hot to me. Your pizza looks awesome and the loin is good so far too. Now I would like to see it finished and sliced if you can do that for us.

    Yeah, sausage & Brats are great on the grill.  Hot dogs get some love when cavegirl's friends are over & I am in the mood to put them on.  Great looking pizza.  Almost forgot about the Rotisserie, huh?  Good job. [​IMG]
     
  10. Thank you much!



     
    Thanks... Yeah, i had tried that Bud Light Lime  2 years ago and havent had it since... decided to try it agian... It is a good choice for a hot summer day...



     
    First time doing Hot Dogs in the smoker... Smoke makes everything better!

    Thanks Caveman (BTW I like the new Avatar)!

    Time and temp of smoke on the pie?  I want to try one soon too...heck i wanted to smoke this weekend but didnt want it to be a long one.  Maybe I'll do one! 
     
  12. Well since this was a premade crust in the pizza kit it was fairly easy... I went 225 and smoked it for about an hour... checked on it and let it go for another 30 or 40 min... crust was perfect (now i was farily intoxicated, so don quote me on those exact times LOL... I would deff check it after and hour, but i am 90% sure i went about a total of 1hr 45min @ 225)... next one will be done w/ a homemade dough... im thinking of putting the dough in the oven on high heat for about 10 min let it cool so it is stiff enough to go right on my grate...

    You mean you tend to drink when you smoke?  I dont believe it! 

    Temp was more was what i was wondering.  I wondered if you went all the way up  to oven temp or kept it down at smoking temp.  I have seen it done on here both ways.  I have a WSM and was thinking about doing it either with no water in the pan, or with no pan at all to get it a little hotter to crisp things up.  Oh well...im sure even a test run will taste good! 
     
  14. LOL!!! Beer & Me... noooooooooo

    Yeah it was kind of an experiment... i kept the water pan... and it wanted to do it long enough to get the smoke flavor... Im thinking if i went with a fresh made (non pre-cooked) dough i would have def hit it with a hire (oven-like) temp...
