Smoke...as in smoked pork butt (not what you think) put in brine for 24 hours, rubbed with kosher salt, smoked paprika and herbs de Provence, smoked until internal temp is 150F, wrap in tin foil and then finished in Dutch oven until internal temp is 200F. Let rest 30 mins in tin foil. Then get two forks and pull apart. 

 

Serve with beans and slaw. Grab a chair, some sweet tea and watch this sunset...

During college, I studied German, so I got a job as an assistant cook in a German restaurant.   Very fun job.

 

The owner/chef taught me her recipes.  Her chicken salad was a favorite.  It was made with turkey.....

Never heard of German chicken salad. German potato salad (with vinegar, not mayo) I've heard of.  ;)

 

What made the chicken salad German?

It was not "German Chicken salad" per se,  but the recipe included mayonnaise, celery, salt and pepper and...  turkey.   The menu stated "Chicken salad".  In my tenure, no one ever asked about that.  Das war nicht ein  huhner,  aber eine puter.

ROFL. You mean "turkey" (Puten), not computer (puter).  :D

 

I am hungry already.

Another ASM in my troop carries a pouch of bacon bits for non-desserts and another of semi-sweet chocolate for desserts. He figures you can't go wrong with bacon and chocolate

 

Probably not a "secret ingredient" as I believe I am the only one who likes this: Raisins in scrambled eggs. :huh:
