Smoked Mac and Cheese

So ... I got to use my smoker a couple times last weekend.

Recently, I posted articles about Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs and Smoked Salsa. I cooked both of these last Saturday on the smoker.

On Sunday, I made something else on the smoker.

Something even more delicious.

Macaroni and Cheese.  Yum! Yum! Yum!

It was sooooooo Guuuuuuuud.

So Good.

Really when it comes right down to it, there are tons of baked Mac and Cheese recipes out on the internet. Smoked Mac and Cheese is simply doing the same thing ... only cooking it on the grill.

Smoked Salsa

Homemade salsa is the best salsa. Last year around March, I made some fermented salsa, which turned out great. Fresh salsa is wonderful too.

I can actually put salsa on all types of foods. Brats. Burgers. Chips. Dips. Chains. Whips.

I digress.

Somewhere. Somehow. I came across the idea of smoking salsa.

I'm embarrassed to say that I don't remember where I got the idea.

I'm sure it was on the interwebs somewhere. It was probably a youtube video.

It might have been this youtube video: Brisket Tacos with Smoked Salsa at All Things Barbecue

Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs

Since I got my Smoker, I've watched lots of Barbecue YouTube videos about smoking and grilling.

I've subscribed to some channels that I enjoy, and the other day a video came across my subscription list.

Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs on No Hippie BBQ & Cooking

Hmmm ... Bacon! Thank you, Lyle!

The recipe looked guuud, and relatively easy. I decided to try it last Saturday. If you follow SheppyBrew's Instagram Page or SheppyBrew's Facebook Page you probably saw pictures.

2018 Q1 SheppyBrew Stats

It is already April.

I think that means that the 1st quarter of 2018 is done.

As you may know, the Brewery likes to post quarterly updates on how much we have brewed. You can see all these updates (including the one you are reading right now) by following this link:  Sheppy's Blog: Brew Stats .

The SheppyBrew Brewery brewed 5 batches of beer in the first quarter:
Arctic Vortex Winter Saison
These 6 batches yielded 30.5 gallons, putting me easily on pace to surpass 100 gallons for the year.

Gringo Cerveza Popcorn Ale

I brewed Wednesday. I had the week off work, so of course I had to get a brew day in.

Wednesday was the day.

The beer I brewed was based on a long-time SheppyBrew recipe. Gringo Cerveza.

Originally, I used this name for a Mr. Beer recipe. I even had a partial mash recipe.

And ... eventually it become an all-grain recipe.

Sometime along the way, it became a Popcorn Beer.

"Popcorn?" You ask. Yes Popcorn.

A popcorn jalapeño beer. The jalapeños have become optional.

I got the idea of using popcorn in a beer when I listened to an episode of The Session on the Brewing Network about Sun King Brewery of Indianapolis, Indiana. One of their beers was a popcorn beer.

I decided to try the popcorn mash. Seemed that concept would work well with a jalapeño beer.

Smoked BBQ Drumsticks

We had a busy day yesterday at SheppyBrew Brewery and Smokehouse.

We didn't brew any beer, but we started the day early by kegging Melting Stream Spring Saison.

We bottled a batch of green tea kombucha and stared a new batch.

And .. we prepared and made barbecue drumsticks.

I bought a package of drumsticks at Sam's Club in the morning.

I decided to make the whole package even though I knew it would be too much for our family of four. I like having leftovers for lunch. Yummy barbecue drumsticks for lunch will be great this week.

2018 Melting Stream Spring Saison

It isn't Spring yet, but here in Denver, it feels like it is close. I'm hoping we get a couple more big snow falls still this year, but right now the weather is starting to get very warm.

I decided it was a good time to brew my Spring Seasonal Saison this past Sunday.

The Spring version of my is Seasonal Saison very light in color. It uses WY3711 for that delicious and refreshing saison flavor. It is hoppy.

Yummy yummy beer. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
