The wife wanted something a bit different so i went with a stuffed chicken. Got some bog standard boneless skinless breasts and gave them a whack or 2 with a frying pan.

Hit them with a bit of my home made experiment "Italian" rub

Next i stuffed them with some Goat cheese bacon and asparagus.

On to the Traeger we go with some mashed potato pie type product i made out of leftovers. Also threw on some more asparagus later in the cook

once it was all cooked up i gave it a bit of a rest.

Plated it all up

Not the prettiest of plates i have made but it tasted good. Thanks for looking and please be kind as this is my first contest. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to post pics before, so thanks for posting instructions for those of us who need the help.

St. Patricks Day cook…….. I started preparing for this cook a week & ½ ago……. A couple choice briskets into brine with some cure, salt, brown sugar, penzeys corned beef spice, a couple beers and some water

8 days later

today a Guinness, some beef broth, corned beef spice onion & some carrots into a foil pan, corned beef suspended over it on to the MAK for a little smoke


While that was getting happy I mixed up some dough for Brown Butter Irish Soda Bread (ingredients include brown butter, rosemary & black pepper) into the MAK, while that started baking I also mixed up some Chocolate Stout cupcakes (an entire bottle of Guinness)
Into the MAK for some baking (there is also some garlic roasting next to the bread for the potatoes)



To be continued……….

While they were baking the corned beef was hanging out in the warming drawer (now in the beer/broth bath), back into the MAK it goes, this is right before foiling

Some cream cheese frosting made, dessert was ready, so we ate that before dinner

Dinner – Corned beef, Roasted Carrots, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Brown Butter Irish Soda Bread
