El Smokeador y Smokehopper Blog: Chicken Fried Smoked Brisket

Chicken fried smoked brisket by El Smokeador.

A couple of weeks ago a commenter, who goes by El Smokeador and operates a meaty blog called El Smokeador y Smokehopper, left a comment with a link to his recipe for brisket cooked with Butterfinger candy bars. I printed it out and plan to try it soon. This morning, El Smokeadore and his co-blogger, Smokehopper, send another creation: chicken friend smoked brisket.  (I love the idea of using a leaf blower to stoke a fire, but I would suggest you proceed with caution.) I think this guy is wacky enough to be included in our blogroll. Et tu, oh brutal ones?

    Oh my god. They’ve done what everyone has been thinking about, but has never had the balls to do.

    Those guys are geniuses.

  • Lion’s Den

    My arteries are hanging their heads in disgust and I just threw up in my mouth.

    Not every hit is a homerun, and comedy is a 24 hour a day job, but I approve of this post.

  • Drew

    I’m sure it’s tasty, but that looks truly horrific

  • Kirk

    Have Wick and your sales staff decided to go after the cholesterol drug companies?

  • Brad

    These guys have good schtick for sure. Blogroll worthy.

  • Generic Dallas Chis Chris

    Brisket with Butterfingers? You have to post that. Consider for the blogroll.

  • Billusa99

    That is so juvenile.

    Why is the brisket covered in wallpaper paste?

    Love the parsley. Chicken fried brisket (CFB?) certainly calls out for a little green on the plate. Not sure whether it’s disturbingly awesome, or awesome-ly disturbing, but it’s definitely one of those. Or maybe both.

    I have to admit if I was in a good Texas diner and saw that they had CFB on the menu, I’d probably try it.

    OMG…delicioso…LMAO…yummy in the tummy…Wes.

  • Daniel Vaughn

    Their culinary creativity alone should get them a spot. They’re not bad writers either.

  • DallasDude

    I read their stuff. I have friends just like them and can relate, and the buffoon factor is pretty high up on the scales. I like how they never spell babaganouj the same way twice.

    Definetley add worthy. Are they related to Tom Spicer?

  • Cluck

    I’ve had their butterfinger brisket and it melted in my mouth. These guys are legit.

  • melanie

    love these guys! I’ve been following their blog for awhile.

  • A.C. Sloshman

    If their brisket is as good as their comedy, we should hear more from El Smokeador and Smokehopper. Please add them to the blogroll.

  • Jacopo Fulgenzio

    They need to learn proper saucing technique. The gravy looks very heavy.

    Great blog – should be added to the blogroll immediately.
