Wood Fired Super Bowl Cook Off!

 

This year as it was Super Bowl 50, we decided to throw in a fun cook off.

The wood fired way!

It was a tough decision with so many great entries, but the following winners wowed us with their wood fired recipes, and variety in their Four Grand Mere brick ovens. 

 

1st Place: 

Wood fired entree #1: Crisping up some wings!
Wood fired entree # 2: White pizza, Pork Pie, Maple Apple Bacon w/spinach, Tres Fungi w/spinach, Thai Pie w/Kimchi and Jalapeño Popper
Wood Fired Entree # 3 - A Margherita Pizza
Wood Fired Entree #4-  - And our "Monday Morning Quarterback" created some Cherry Scones and Limoncello cookies all in the wood fired oven!

2nd Place: 

The Fitterer's 

Dave and I made baby back ribs for a super bowl party! We marinated them with a homemade rub overnight
We then put them in our WFO when the temperature was around 225-250 degrees.
They stayed in at the low temperature for about 8 hours. 
 
We used a few pieces of smoked applewood chips. After cooking we put on sauce! We are attaching pictures of them after the marinate, placing in the oven, a half way thru check at noon, the temp gauge, and of course right before we were ready to serve!

3rd Place:

 

Lazy Cheese Pierogi (A Polish tradition when one does not have time to make Pierogi)

(It was so good, no time to snap a picture!) 

1 lb Farmer's Cheese (soft Farmers cheese not the hard block kind)

2 eggs well beaten

1/2 tsp salt

1 T. melted butter

1 T. confectioners sugar

1 C sifted all purpose flour

 

Add all  ingredients to the cheese and mix well until dough is smooth. (one can add additional flour to the mixture to make a more doughy Pierogi, 1/4 to 1/2 of cup of all purpose flour, this is a personal choice)

 

Divide dough into about 8 equal parts and roll each part on a floured surface into a long roll about 1" wide. Place on floured cookie sheet, cover and place in refrigerator to chill.

 

Remove from refrigerator and cut dough into small pieces 1/2" wide on a bias. (if dough is sticky dust small amounts of flour on the cut pieces)

 

At this point one could freeze the cut dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Once the dough is frozen remove from cookie sheet and store in a freezer bag to be used in the future.

 

Add the chilled dough (or frozen) to a large pot of boiling salted water until the dough rises to the top. (3-5 minutes or so, frozen will be a bit longer)

 

Using a slotted spoon carefully remove dough and drain in colander.

 

Add melted butter, salt and pepper to taste.  Serve hot. Enjoy!
