I decided to spend some time with my Weber and cook a 28-day dry aged ribeye. While perusing the cheese section at the market, I stumbled upon some blue cheese, which had been smoked with pecan shells. I've been meaning to try my hand at some various compound butters, and figured this cheese would be perfect, and would go along nicely with the meal.

Smoked blue cheese:




Making coumpound butter:
hickory-cherry smoked butter, blue cheese, and beef bacon bits:


I formed the smoked bue cheese & bacon coumpound butter into a roll, and set it in the fridge to firm up:



I prepped a nice, thick 28-day dry aged ribeye with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper:



I also took a sweet potato, and whipped it up in a typical twice baked potato fashion:



Threw them both on a Weber with some lump, and dinner was served:



The steak was full of flavor and very juicy, and that smoked compound butter really kicked it up a notch. The sweet potato was very light and fluffy, with a nice smokiness to it. Definitely good eats.

Dude, you just ruined some perfectly good blues cheese by adding that other stuff to it.
If you like cheese, i would suggest the other Rogue Creamery cheeses. And if your near the Medford area stop by the creamery, its pretty cool.

The steak does look good. Wink

WOW!! WOW!!! THAT IS SOME INERADICABLE FOOD!! I'd be on that quicker than a hound on a hare. Reading the post title made the tummy growl! For me at least, all that needs is a Glass of 12yr old single malt and a fine cigar to round it out.

For a minute, I thought that the smoked butter and bacon might overpower the taste of the smoked blue cheese---and that all of it might overpower the steak. But the blue cheese really held it's own in that combination, and the beefiness of the steak really shown through.

I dunno, I don't think I'd have any trouble eradicating it. Wink

Thanks for the beautiful pics. I really need to branch out. Smile

Actually, what I cooked may very well be a yam. I bought both sweet potatoes and yams, and didn't bother to separate them. Either way, it was delicious. I baked it until it was soft, scooped out the flesh, and blended it with 1 tbsp of smoked butter, 1/2 tsp of smoked cinnamon, a pinch of light brown sugar, and a few dollops of sour cream. The potato got a second cook on the grill.
