In an effort to use up BBQ side-dish leftovers I 'invented' a new salad dressing.

This is more of a general method than a precise recipe, but that's how I roll. Razz

We had big red onion slices, and big purple and yellow tomato slices for the burgers. Color of the onion and tomato doesn't really matter but it helps if the tomato is ultra-ripe and soft.

I minced the red onion, minced the skinned tomato slices, then added a squirt of mustard, a squirt of red wine vinegar, a few seasonings (salt and pepper, sugar, and some dry Italian dressing mix, but add any kind you like).

Then I poured in enough olive oil to make a nice emulsion. I liked it so much I made it again today.

You could throw in minced pickle or pepperoncini as well.

Thanks. Makes sense, since I AM the wife on this amateur newbie Q-team.

Can't eat just salad, so DH is making a peppercorn-smoked meat loaf to go with.

Probably pics to come. Wish us luck, it's a first, lol.

All right, here we go! Something to eat with the salad.

We tried a smoked meat loaf on the Weber, adding peppercorns to the hickory chips and apple juice to the drip pan.

The meat loaf itself was half pork, half beef, with about two and a quarter pounds of meat overall. One egg (I might use two next time), some breadcrumbs soaked in greek yogurt (a trick I 'stole' from America's Test Kitchen), some ketchup, and about a tablespoon or two of seasonings (dried onion soup, Italian herbs, salt, pepper, our own BBQ shake).

The raw loaf:

When it was almost done, we glazed it with some more rub, some ketchup, and Stubbs regular BBQ sauce. Here it is out of the kettle to cool down a bit. The aroma was wonderful:

On a plate with my standard bean dish, just wish my standard picture-taking was better but the smoke fumes went to my head:

Of course, the salad with that 'leftovers' dressing that started it all:

That looks great !!

Reset your picture size tho... the salad one is 1024 x 1020

Max size is 650 on any side....

Check the link in 'Rule one" here ~~>

Problem is the big ones squash the ads over on the sides of the page
& those folks pay the bills so we get to play for free

The pix & cook look terrific, just the same !!!

You can re-size & then re-work the post by deleting out just each photo tag
& replacing with the new & improved ones, in the posting box.......

A bit tricky, but maybe worth it.... you have nice photos...

I know you're not using Photobucket, but you may stiill have to re-size at home & then send to Flickr..
Not sure how that one works, Photobucket won't re-size internally.....

Look forward to more of your cooks !!!!! Very Happy Very Happy

OK, I am reallllly hoping the pic is the right size now. I previewed it and it looks ok, but... I will fall on my shish kebab if it fails!

Did something different with my baby backs... and rubbed 'em with olive oil, and the bone side with mustard.





We also put some liquid in the drip pan. Half apple juice, half water.

The rest was SOP, remove membranes, apply favorite rub, charcoal on the Weber 22.5-inch One Touch Gold, 300-325 degrees for about 90 minutes, light hickory smoke, rest under foil for a while when they come off.

They were GOOOOOOOOOD. And yes, there was salad to go with.
