Smoked Tomato Soup

I got the wild hair today to fire up the smoker.  But I went a totally different direction from the normal dry rubbed, low and slow pork that usually graces the Bradley.

This time it was a whole pile of tomatoes.
While the 'maters were getting an hour of smoke at about 180 degrees, I started the base of the soup

Add the tomatoes into the pot with some chicken stock, salt, pepper, and a small dash of cayenne pepper.
Cook it down for a while, add a couple of shots of milk, and hit it with the stick blender.
After dressing with some oaxaca cheese, and society garlic fronds we had- Dinner!

Very tasty.  Smoke is one of my favorite seasonings, and this is a great showcase of it.  Tart, smoky, creamy and just really good.


  1. I admit. I have met my culinary match. Well done!

  2. That is very high praise, coming from you. Thanks.

  3. That looks pretty fantastic. I think it should go on the menu for the trip. Pre-smoke the tomatoes. Healthy, too. Sounds incredible.

  4. Yeah, I think I would need to add some bacon to take it on the trip

  5. The phrase "My mouth tastes like burning" came to mind when I read that your favorite seasoning was smoke! And now I'm giggling at myself.

    That soup looks fantastic! I'm gonna start having my meals at your house from now on.
