Default More Weekend Cooks....Smoked Chuck, Hot Fudge Pudding Cake & WARNING - Green Beans

About a 2.5 lb chuck rubbed with RSS Bubba's Best Beef Rub and smoked with hickory on the Kettle.









Foiled it after a while and added an onion. Also threw some potatoes on to bake and fry for breakfast the next morning.



I let it go until it pulled apart.





The mac 'n cheese with MHGP cracker topping. Really liked that!




And for Wingman, I baked a hot fudge pudding cake. Rob, I'm real sorry you couldn't have been there to taste this. You have to try this even if in the oven. The recipe I used was for an 8" DO but it was fine in the 10" deep. I pre-mixed the mixes at home and put them in ziplock bags for travel and labeled them #1 and #2.



Bag #1 contains:
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder,
1/4 teaspoon salt

Bag #2 contains:
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa

When ready to bake the cake, I dumped Bag #1 into the lightly greased DO and added 1/2 cup milk, 1/3 cup melted butter, and 1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and mixed until smooth. Then take Bag 2 and sprinkle evenly over batter. Pour 1 1/4 cups hot water over top, DO NOT stir.

I baked with 7 charcoal briquettes on the bottom and 14 on the top for 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set. Let stand 15 minutes; spoon into dessert dishes, spooning sauce from bottom of Dutch oven over the top.

Here is how I arrange the coals for the bottom.



Melting the butter




Bag #1 with butter, vanilla, and milk added





Bag #2 sprinkled over top



Pour on hot water















I imagine some whipped cream or ice cream would have been good but the cake was plenty on its own! This cake is awesome!! Some call it Death By Chocolate, some call it a Lava Cake...I call it GONE!





Oh, and Sunday was my Dad's 75th birthday. He wanted fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans. I did the green beans for the party.

3 1/2 lbs of beans.



Boiling with a couple onions, salt, pepper and a large chunk of joe butt.




Gotta cook them until that joe falls apart.






OK, that's all I got. Hope you enjoyed and thanks for looking!
