Steven Raichlen Brings #ProjectSmoke to Wichita

IMG_1262

Yoder Smokers is proud to be a sponsor of Steven Raichlen’s Project Smoke show on public television. We were thrilled to partner with our Wichita retailer All Things Barbecue to welcome the barbecue scholar emeritus for a series of cooking classes. It was kind of like an episode of Project Smoke, but with a whole backline of Yoders! Steven and Chef Tom from ATBBQ’s The Sauce cooked up an incredible array of dishes from the new Project Smoke book on everything from the Loaded Wichita offset smoker to our 24″ x 48″ Flat Top charcoal grill and a fleet of Yoder Smokers pellet grills.

We took the grates off the charcoal pit and cooked Cowboy-style T-bones and corn in the husks right on the glowing coals.

Steven’s Chinatown Spareribs were a huge hit with the crowd, shown here by Cody.

It was a lot of fun showing Steven #WhyIYoder and learning some new recipes from his barbecue travels. Smoked ice cream was another huge hit. We’re going to have to do more experimenting and, hopefully, have him back sometime soon.

Steven Raichlen Yoder Smokers Loaded Wichita Project Smoke
The second season of Project Smoke premiered this weekend, featuring the national television debut of the Yoder Smokers Loaded Wichita offset pit!  In the first episode, Steven Raichlen uses a butcher shop mistake to his advantage, with the unexpected delivery of beef plate ribs turning into Smoked Brisket On The Bone. He smokes them low and slow on the Wichita for ten hours with absolutely mouthwatering results. Here are some screen shots from The ABCs of Smoke, in case you missed it. Find the recipe and where to watch the show in your area or online at ProjectSmoke.org.

If you’re looking for a crowd-pleasing side dish for your Memorial Day cookout, here’s a great twist on a potluck favorite – straight from page 36 of Project Smoke:

Steven Raichlen’s Deviled Smoked Eggs

Steven Raichlen Smoked Eggs from Project Smoke Yield: Makes 24 halves  Prep time: 20 minutes (plus egg smoking time)

These may be the most flavorful deviled eggs you will ever experience—thanks to an invigorating blast of wood smoke. For even more flavor, top them with bacon, brisket, or smoked seafood.

INGREDIENTS
For the filling
12 Smoked Eggs (see full recipe)
1/3 cup mayonnaise (pref. Hellmann’s or Best Foods), or to taste
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sriracha, Tabasco sauce, or other favorite hot sauce, or to taste
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

For the toppings (optional)
Chopped chives
Spanish smoked paprika (pimentón)
Regular or smoked salmon caviar
Fried bacon slivers
Finely shredded smoked beef brisket (page 66) or pulled pork (page 88)

  1. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each half so it won’t wobble. Pop out the yolks and place them and the egg white trimmings in a food processor. (Alternatively, you can mash the yolk mixture with a fork.)
  2. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, sriracha, and Worcestershire sauce, and process to a thick puree. For a creamier filling, add more mayo.
  3. Spoon the mixture back into the egg white halves or pipe it in with a pastry bag or a resealable plastic bag with a lower corner clipped off. Top the eggs, if desired, with a sprinkling of chives and/or smoked paprika, or a dollop of salmon caviar, bacon, or shredded brisket or pork. Refrigerate in a covered container or loosely covered with plastic wrap until serving.

Yoder Smokers and Steven Raichlen at American Royal

When Steven Raichlen was inducted to the KCBS BBQ Hall of Fame at the American Royal in October, he stopped by the Yoder Smokers booth to check out our cookers and chat. In person, the noted author and television personality is just as gracious and knowledgeable about the art of cooking with fire as he appears on television.

Steven Raichlen and the Yoder Smokers Cimarron Offset Smoker

Steven had heard of Yoder Smokers but had never had the opportunity to see them in person. He asked Don and Joe a lot of questions about the cookers on display and seemed to like what he heard and saw. In fact, he decided to use the Yoder Smokers Cimarron and Loaded Wichita offset smokers for the upcoming season of Project Smoke, which will premiere on PBS stations at the end of May.

Yoder

Project Smoke‘s second season was filmed in Palm Springs, California, which proved to be a beautiful backdrop to showcase the capabilities (and movie star good looks) of our Cimarron Competition Smoker. Raichlen promises the new season will feature plenty of traditional low and slow favorites, but also new and innovative ways of using smoke in your cooking. There will be barbecue, of course, but there will also be smokey mixed drinks and an entire episode dedicated to smoking breakfast foods.
