The first smoke of the season is always special but this one was a little more meaningful. We were using our new Mountain Weber Smoker for the first time. As you have seen from past posts we were doing just fine with the regular Weber grill using indirect heat but this summer we are taking it to the next level. These ribs were inspired by a Thai pepper pickle recipe we created using fish sauce, vinegar, lemon grass and Thai chilies. This recipe is hot like most Thai food is so if you can’t handle the heat cut down on the chilies.

One of our favorite appetizers at an Indian restaurant is Chicken Pakora bites. They are light and crispy but very different than your average chicken tenders. As you know from our Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup Danny loves Chickarina soup so we decided to make an Indian version. It turned out great! This soup is the perfect way to enjoy a Fall evening.
Danny and I have started playing a new game when we make dinner. It is very similar to the Food Network show “Chopped”. Danny picked out ingredients, presented them, and I had to cook a dish with them. These ingredients weren’t as difficult as you see on the show but this is a great way to challenge yourself to be creative.
