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.
This was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. Just awesome!!!
Thank you Mrs. Honey. I guess we’ll be making it again?
Great looking dish. Love what you did with the soba noodles. Great description for me!
Like I said. I played it a little safe by just smoking the turkey, but I’m glad I did. It turned out fantastic, if a little monochrome.
Very nice! It never would have occurred to me to use pumpkin in anything this time of year.
I’d originally thought carrot. Thank the lovely Mrs. for the pumpkin suggestion. She’s brilliant like that.
Yeah, but your skills on making this an awesome dish were outstanding. We really pulled this one off!
Hi Jerry, welcome fellow blogger of the 4 ingredients challenge.
Nice done,looks great. Next month I’m inn again..
Mmm!! Can’t wait to try this for myself!
BTW, different honeys would give a different flavor. We used Fireweed honey and it had an extra bite that was amazing!
So yummy…I’ll love to try this..Thanks a lot.I’ll tell my mom about this.:)
