It surely is fall here. Blowing wind and rain, new snow down to 3000'. Time for some comfort food. Smoked salmon chowder will fill the bill, and there's nothing that says fall like apple crisp.
Most of the characters....

Diced potatos and onions getting some smoke love with apple pellets in the a-maze-n device. Enough smoke?

While the smoker is going, time to whip up a batch of apple crisp and get it in the drum smoker w/temp. holding steady @ 315F around the outside edge. I figured it was pretty close to 350F in the middle.

Potatos and onions out of the smoker, onions into the pot with celery, carrots and butter for a little sweating.

Potatos and chicken stock into the pot to cook all the veggies al dente.

With the veggies cooking, time to make the rue.

Alder smoked salmon that I'd smoker earlier this fall chunked up and ready. Every thing into the pot.

Time to take the crisp out of the UDS.

I sliced up a loaf of sourdough, lightly brushed with EVO, then onto the drum for a lite toast and served with the chowder.

And the dessert. I was really surprised that there wasn't a hint of charcoal aroma or flavor present in the apple crisp. Mmmm... I...can't...move...

The crisp looks great and even the chowder looks good to me! I had an "episode" with smoked salmon 20 years ago and still can't eat it but I'd make an exception in the case of your chowder! :)

Scooter, I'm convinced a piece of my smoked salmon would win you back.:D

I'll bet it would at that, especially bathed in all that creamy goodness! :)
