Smoked gouda grits are a favorite of both friends and family. These were made by special request from our host as my contribution to our gathering. We prepared bell peppers and onions, creamed spinach, grilled chicken and pork on site. Everything was prepared over an open wood fire and the warm spring weather was especially fun for outdoor cooking.
Fresh, coarsely ground grits make a world of difference and that’s easier said than done unless you live near a grist mill. I order on-line from Weisenberger Mill, located on Elkhorn Creek in Scott County, Kentucky. Six generations of Weisenbergers have owned and operated it since their patriarch emigrated from Germany in 1865. You can really taste the love in their grits.
