My parents are in town and after talking about our days in America and about how well Smoke is doing, we decided to head down for a meal.
The well tested usuals, buffalo wings, this time with “3rd degree burn” sauce on the side and spinach and strawberry salad with heaps of walnuts and blue cheese marinated in honey, poppy seeds and vinaigrette.
One new item, cajun chicken cigars. Smoked chicken and corn and cajun seasoning in springroll skins.
Our wine, a Mornington Peninsula Pinot. Good basic wine, good deep flavour with nice dark colour, a bit light on the Pinot aromas.
Our mains, I got too excited and started eating so the photo is a representation of what is left half way thru the mains… We got half size baby back ribs and smoked beef brisket. The brisket was too lean for me. The ribs had a really nice smokey flavour as usual.
My father got into his American eating mode and wanted to try some desserts especially if they had some pecan pies, but they said they only have brownies or pumpkin pie at the moment and the pecan is coming back soon for the winter menu!
