Grandma's Southern Peas final pics
 
My Grandma taught me to cook and I truly thank her for that, her first husband was killed in the war and she started to cook and bake for a dinner to make ends meet for her and 3 kids.
This is one of her recipes that I have eaten since I was a kid.

Start off by frying a pound of thick sliced bacon til crisp. Remove and drain on a paper towel til later. Leave the drippings in the pot.

Now to the bacon grease we add sweet onion, green onion, diced garlic, and a little salt and simmer til soft.

Now we add soaked black-eyed peas or field peas with a little of the soaking water, stewed tomatoes, sliced okra, sliced Jalapeno, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. let simmer about 15 minutes.

Now we add in 1 pound of cubed smoked ham(from the freezer)

1 pound of smoked sausage( a buddy makes this & it's great, in ring like small baloney)

and crumple the bacon back in.

This is where I modified her recipe. She did everything in the kitchen. I finish this in a smoker.

I have the Keg set for indirect cooking. Cooking at 220 with pecan wood.
I will cook uncovered for around 3 hours stirring every half hour.

Then I'll add some flour to thicken it. Cook for 1 hour. Then let cool down. I'll reheat it later while I'm finishing everything else.

Pics of the rest of the cook later after we've eaten this evening.

Cornbread ready to eat

I like to split a piece of cornbread, butter it, and lay it in the bottom of a bowl
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t...0015Custom.jpg

Then pour the peas over the cornbread and it's ready to eat
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t...0016Custom.jpg

Pam likes a bowl to the side and cornbread pepper sticks for dunkin' in the peas
