This year I'm being the hillbilly gourmet for the holidays, fixed/fixing lots of special treats for friends and family.
Back in June I got a big bunch of Madagascar vanilla beans and a couple big bottles of Svedka vodka and started some vanilla extract
Under the extract is a bag of vanilla sugar I made with the beans once they were taken out of the extract and dried.
The jelly is some Habanero jelly I made...
Next I smoked some peppercorn brisket and gave it out
Had to keep some for me of course
Tomorrow I'll finish up with a Roasted Duck and Hickory smoked pork butt
Preparing home made chicken stock that will be used in the duck process before roasting
and of course some Grand Marnier for the orange sauce (and maybe a sip or two HO HO HO!!!)
I'll add pics of the duck and pork butt once ready.
Has made it one of the most fun Christmas' ever
Happy Holidays everyone!
