BBQ Bagel Sandwich-Pizzas

To begin, we apologize for the hiatus. We are back. Here is a picture of us:

Secondly, there are 11 things that a man needs to know before he dies. One of them, for instance, involves math. Another involves BBQ Bagel Sandwich-Pizzas. Today we learn about the latter.

What is a BBQ Bagel Sandwich-Pizza, you ask? Its exactly what you think it is, but more delicious somehow. Anyway, check it out below as we post pictures and talk about it (web logging).

However, before we begin, a quick comment about the current heat: My Goodness. Truly… it is hot outside. Am I right? Or what?

(Finfrock don't play no shit. Finfrock ain't never been about playing no shit.)

The meal:

So you start by smoking a delicious brisket. It’s pretty easy. Check out every other blog post we've ever made to see how to smoke a brisket. Here is a picture of what it looked like when we smoked the brisket.

It was excellent. Smokeador made it.

Next, make delicious bagels. Essentially you mix up some yeast, and flour and water and mix it up and then let it sit, and then bake it. Its literally that easy.

Not really. Its really complicated and very hard. StephSmoke does all the baking. I would suggest using a recipe of sorts. Here are some pictures of what it looked like when we made the bagels.
(mix it)

(rest it)

(rise it)

(split it up)

(shape them)

(boil them)

and after you bake them...Tadaaa: Bagels.

Next, make delicious BBQ sauce. The BBQ sauce we made was Kansas City style. Which means a thicker sauce with more sugar than acid. In my opinion all BBQ sauce has essentially the same four ingredients, with different flavorings. There always seems to be sugar, vinegar, tomato base and water. Vary their proportions and you get different styles. This could be totally false though. Anyway, here is a picture of the BBQ sauce and a little bit about how we made it.

Ok, we started by heating up some beef fat that had solidified on top of the refrigerated brisket juices. (When you smoke a brisket and you wrap it in foil for a few hours, a whole lot of juice and fat seeps to the bottom of the foil. If you save this liquid, the fat will rise to the top and solidify in the fridge. Remove the fat and use it as you would any other fat. The reaming juices are chalk full of smokey flavor and gelatin. Culinary gold!) If you think it looks gross its looks kinda gross. But its not....its awesome smokey lardy delicious goodness.

(it turns into a liquid quickly)

(saute onions and garlic in it)

(add some Pendrey's chili powder)

(add dijon mustard, worschesrctire sauce, some molasses, brown sugar, get the idea)

(and about a cup of Ketchup. Not to brag, but we used a homemade ketchup. Suck it Trebeck.)

(add a healthy dose of the brisket stock)

(it dissolved quickly)

(Boom. Its done.)

(Strain it and that's it. It was delicious.)

Finally, take the leftover brisket that you have, and make chopped brisket. This is done by taking the fatty delicious pieces, and chopping them with extreme impunity. EXTREME IMPUNITY. Am I using the word “impunity” correctly? Unfortunately, there is no way to know that. Mix in a little bit of the BBQ sauce to keep it real. Here is a picture or two of the process.

Next buy delicious American Cheese. Captain America Cheese.

Now combine everything up like a pizza. First, you cut the bagels in half and add the delicious sauce. Then add cheese and meat, really in whatever order you wish. Put them in the oven for 10 mins at 350. Or whatever. I made those numbers up just now. Cook them until they are hot is what I should have said.

At this point we knew that it was going to taste good because of basic food math. If you take one delicious substance and combine it with other delicious substances, as long as they are compatible, the flavor quotient will increase with extreme impunity.

The Final Product:

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeehawwwww! They were very good. They had the look of a sandwich, but the soul of a pizza, and the heart of a BBQ sandwich.

Thanks for reading!!!

Sorry again for the long hiatus. We will be back soon with Yoda Ears and Eskimo Farts.
