    My dills were done earlier than expected, or I just couldn't wait. Either way, after eating some I thought about using them in something as I often like to use them for something outside of snacking. I thought of an idea of splitting them, seeding them, stuffing it with cheese (blue, brie or cheddar) and then smoking them. Anyone every try smoking them? On paper, or in my mind, it sounds great.

    My first thought is "what are you thinking"?

    My second thought is to check the search bars for "ronp".

    That guy never saw anything he didn't want to smoke.

    Hot off the smoker pickles sounds a little weird...But smoked and chilled pickles stuffed with a mix of Garlic and Dill with Cream Cheese might be kick butt!...JJ

    This sounds interesting.  Hot pickles aren't too wierd to anyone who has had deep fried pickles.

    I think "interesting is a good description - I like deep fried pickles, and figure there's really good odds that I'd like smoked pickles.

    I say that Chef Jay needs to make up a batch and let us know how good they are.

    I agree I would love to see how they turn out!

  9. I took a BBQ boot camp last year. While the briskets were smoking one of the side items they had us do "Grickles". Large deli pickles, seeds scooped out, lined with pepperoni and topped with cheddar cheese. I make them all the time now.

    That's pretty interesting. I love fried pickles! Maybe some smoke, then battered and fried?

    LOL this is interesting. My wife might like them but I'm sure I wouldn't, as I don't like fried  pickles, the few times I have had them they was mushy.  This reminds me of when the wife was pregnant  with our youngest boy. She would eat pickle, peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I was like [​IMG]I would just shake my head and go on. Wounder if that's why he LOVES dill pickles so much, I kid you not he can and will eat a whole jar, anything that has pickles on it he orders extra extra pickles.

    Hmmm....I would love to try one of those!!!
     
  13. Hmmm, just sounds wrong but could turn out to be some delectable. I think these sound good and Fred's look awesome. I take kosher dills, spread some dried beef with a cream cheese mixture, wrap it around the dill pickle and slice them up! Man they don't last long at all.

    Now I do like fried pickles but smoked just sounds wrong in so so many ways. But then again they could be really yummO to.

    The pic shows those as fairly lightly cooked.  How long do you smoke them for and at what temp?  Have you used any other toppings?

     
     
  16. These were from the boot camp and were placed in the smoker for about an hour while the brisket was resting. Now when i do them i smoke for about 1.5 hours @ 250 with more smoke than the one in the photo had.

    I said that about pickled eggs, fried green tomatoes, kimchi, and few other weird items but sometimes the odd is pretty good.  when I was a kid, my mom would make corn bread and white kidney bean soup and me and my siblings hated the soup - now, the soup alone is mighty tasty!  I'll try most things once, if nothing else, so I can say with personal experience, "that ain't so good"

    Dill pickles with pepperoni and cheese, well, 3 things I like - we'll see if they go together!
