Default Suck at hunting? Follow me for more recipes!

Let's get this meatless Thanksgiving started with a wildly popular appetizer!

This thread is dedicated to our core group of posters that have never posted a hunting pic or competed a thread on a live hunt...but have somehow achieved "pope & young" status. This TOFU's for YOU!

Name:  Capture.JPG
Views: 1713
Size:  16.5 KB

Ingredients:

4 blocks of extra firm tofu. I prefer organic.

One bottle of Allegro hickory smoke.

A knife.

A pan to to marinate the tofu in.

Recipe:

Slice tofu lengthwise into about 1/8" strips. I was so excited that I may have made some 1/4" inch and 1/32" strips.

Pour about 1/4 bottle of the Allegro into the pan. I used a cake pan with a locking lid.

Start laying down layers of tofu slices in the bottom. After each letter, gently use a BBQ brush (preferably one that hasn't been contaminated in the past with bloody meat) to dip in the pan and and brush each slice. Brush several times as it soaks up the liquid.

Put another layer directly on top of the first layer and repeat. Keep brushing each slice. Keep going until all layers are in the pan and generously brushed with allegro.

Pour the rest of the bottle over the top and brush/mop several times until all pieces look medium brown (not white).

Put the lid on the pan and put in the fridge for 3-4 hours.

Then it's time for the dehydrator! I suggest using the dehydrator sheets to prevent bad dripping.

I'll update later.

You will be wishing you had a smell-o-vision monitor. Better keep a napkin handy for the drool!

Stay tuned, my protein-loving friends!

Dehydrator will take 12-15 hours.

I know I know... Hard to keep your hands out of the cookie jar when the garage smells this good.

Hmmm...

I like Tofu occasionally - I like Alegro a lot - why did you not put in that pellit contraption you got last month?

The combo might be good................

That’s you. With a dehydrator. And tofu in it. Did you lose a bet? Is this payback for shooting someone’s blind? Or missing a buck or something?? Sounds like a bet was made over over some Peach Crown and now has to be lived up to? Hahaha

Second time Ive seen this spike tonight. Congrats to your son Dale. But...now Ive got major spike envy.

Chew...I believe I may be a violator...how does someone go about completing a live hunt thread...with no kill? I tried to bring a graceful close to my first and only live and unsuccessful hunt thread but it still felt like a lame duck...like watching a football thrown by Mark Ripken.

First bag is done. These were the thinnest strips. I'd rate them a 7.5 out of 10. Should have put some jalapeno powder in the mix.

Well this is a Chew thread so I will follow along for the punch line.

I think a little beef bullion might help that stuff.

This looks great! I can't wait for the finished product.
It's not that I suck at hunting, it's just that I haven't made it out to adjust my feeder timers for daylight savings time yet.

Yep I learned my lesson last year and didn't get anything. made a special three-hour drive to change my feeder timers and the deer were able to keep up with the program. I bet you don't make that mistake again!!
