Chicken n Aubergine


Chicken n Aubergine, originally uploaded by Seligmans Dog.

I was up this morning around 6 to go out for a quick coffee and remind myself a game of Candyland is more important than surfing the net.

I started the briquettes plus some hickory with a torch and let it rip during the morning. Dome temp around 250-275 in my kettle and the results look great.

Chicken was simply stuffed with rosemary and bay leaves and seasoned with s+p, eggplants were punctured once. Later today I'll turn it into a nice mild smokey baba ghanouj. Two dinners down.

Hey Tina, I had baba ghanouj most recently at Lavash and it had such a nice subtle smokiness to it, I got the itch to prep the eggplant this way. We'll probably get to it Tues or Wed. Did a bunch of cooking today for the week. It'll be a great week of menus.
