This week I embarked on a journey to see what myself and a few other intrepid grill masters could create using the same ingredients… And a grill. As I’m a bit late with this, I’ll be brief.
It’s a Chopped kind of arrangement. We get a list of ingredients and our task is to incorporate all of them in a dish. This month’s ingredients were:
- Turkey (either whole or part)
- Soba Noodles
- A vegetable that isn’t green
For me this is a comfortable list, as I cook with soba noodles all the time, and Turkey and almonds pair well with Asian flavors. I’ll also admit to playing pretty safe by simply smoking the turkey while I was smoking a picnic ham, but I was rushed.
The end result was a very good dish that I will make again, though this time I’ll smoke a breast instead of cutlets.
In all, this was a fun challenge, but next month’s has more of that “chopped” feel, and includes some things that are going to challenge the heck out of me. Stay tuned!

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
Something green for color would have been nice.
