Peanut Butter! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? Peanut Butter!
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Peanut Butter and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!
16 oz Peanut Butter
16 oz Fluff or Marshmellow Spread
2 pieces of sandwich bread
InstructionsEmpty your peanut butter jar, or however much you want to smoke (a serving of peanut butter is generally a little over an ounce) into a foil pan. Set your smoker to somewhere around 120° and smoke for 1 hour. Since the PK 100 does not have humidity control I am adding a bowl of water to keep some moisture in the chamber. I decided that the best way to try this would be with a favorite sandwich of mine as a kid, we called them Fluffernutters but some people apparently call them Peanut Butter and Fluff Sandwiches but that name is so incredibly boring that I almost fell asleep while typing it. Once your peanut butter is smoked spread the desired amount onto a piece of bread and then spread the desired amount of fluff on the other piece, close the sandwich and enjoy! Since we smoked almost the entire jar I just put the leftover amount back in the jar when we were done so now we have smoked Peanut Butter for whenever we want it!
So, Will it BBQ?
We decided to make one sandwich out of the smoked peanut butter and one made from normal peanut butter so we could have something to compare it to and it was a good thing we did it this way as the first taste did not bring up a ton of smoke, however after comparing it to the regular sandwich I realized that the peanut butter had picked up smoke but it was more subtle than I had expected. I love this type of sandwich that I was going to be happy with this no matter what but I do think the smoky peanut butter added something to it! So, in the end this was a yes it will BBQ!

@johnsbrewhouse We do have some interesting food markets around here. I’ll have to do some digging. I’ll be traveling to the Oregon coast soon. There are all sorts of unique shops along the way.
@raider2119 I have found both assembly and disassembly as well as cleaning to be cumbersome on mine. I haven’t used it much because of that.
@Jonathon I have not tried WD-40 yet, the brass piece on the knob end seems to move freely, and seems to have full range of travel… just not far enough to allow the mixer paddle to slip free… There is no rust, in fact, this appears to be brand new… don’t even see any scratches on the plastic lid…
I have removed the handle / crank, but the brass piece on that side is still in the mixer… It appears this inserts from the inside, and to remove it the paddle must be removed first… am I somehow wrong about this?
