Topic: Smoking with coffee wood (6 msgs / 196 lines)
1) From: javafool
Im sitting here this morning drinking a wonderful cup of Kenya Ruiru =
-
Oaklands Estate Peaberry while I wait for the John McCann steel cut =
oatmeal
with raisins to finish cooking in the rice cooker and watch the new =
James
Taylor DVD my daughter sent me for my 61st birthday. This is about day =
five
for the Oaklands Estate and it just keeps getting better with time.
Last night Carol & I made a couple of meatloaves I will cook on the =
Holland
grill this afternoon. I have never tried smoking using coffee beans, but =
a
year or so ago I bought 20 or 30# of Costa Rican coffee tree wood chips =
that
will provide the smoke for the meatloaves today. The smoke has no =
detectable
coffee flavor, but it provides a light to medium smoke flavor that adds
quite a bit to the meatloaf. I cook the 1 1/2# meatloaves at about =
350F for
about an hour until the internal temperature is 170F.
Wow, I am getting really hungry just thinking about today's food. =
Peaberry
"Aida's Grand Reserve" should be delivered tomorrow!!!!
Have a great day everyone,
Terry

Ginny,
About 3:00-4:00 this afternoon. I have three grills altogether so if you
want to make it a party, I can always pick up more meat and probably =
cook
maybe a dozen 1 1/2# meatloaves. We can spice a few up (kick-um up a =
notch)
for those with better stomachs that mine. If it's sandwiches, someone =
needs
to bring the homemade bread or rolls.

a jewel of a coffee and could become one of my 35 or 40 favorites !!(grin,

     I'm very curious to know where you found coffee wood chips.
Happy Roasting

Hello Josh,
I think I bought them from a place called Smokinwoodchips.com, but I =
dont
see any coffee chips on their site. The owner bought way too many of the
coffee wood chips at the time and he was pushing large orders at low =
prices,
so I stocked up. My last order was from The Barbecue Store, and the only
reason I mail order wood chips and chunks is because I like the lighter
tasting pecan, cherry and apple smoke as opposed to the hickory, oak and
some of the heavier tasting wood available at Wal-Mart and those places.
From there it really boils down to shipping costs.
Roasting coffee, cooking and outdoor grilling and smoking, in my =
opinion,
have a lot in common. I think a lot of us on the list have really =
spoiled
our taste buds. It is interesting that in this case the best tasting
whatever doesnt necessarily mean you must spend a lot to have the =
very
best. You need to enjoy what you do and ignore the people who have no =
doubt
you are crazy.
We moved here (Clearwater) from Indiana in 1999, and I had my share of =
those
gray November days. Right now it is 82F & mostly sunny. Perfect =
grilling
and roasting weather.
Best,
Terry

for my wood chips, use the bean pods from the Mesquite trees on the edge 
of my property. to me they have a sweet but intense flavour
