    "Real" Jewish Rye Bread Recipe

    This has nothing to do with BBQ or smoking, but I came across a Jewish rye bread recipe on a sausage making forum here:


    I've made the recipe two times now with good results. Below is my bread baking record page from yesterday's loaf.

    The recipe calls for white rye flour and first clear flour. White rye is available on amazon, but the only place I've found first clear flour is from King Arthur and only as a 3 pound bag. The original author says you can substitute bread flour, but I have not tried it (I will).

    To make your first rye sour, you add 106 grams white rye flour and 118 grams water to about a hundred grams of any sourdough starter that you have and let it work until about twice volume (took about 7 hours in my 78º kitchen. Then either use it, or refrigerate until you're read to use.

    OK, if you make pastrami on rye sandwich, then its acceptable as BBQ, right?

    Very nice looking loaf there. Love rye and pumpernickel breads even though a baker i am not. Thankfully there are a few great places around me to purchase artisans breads. And yes! Pastrami is just fine-quality bbq (imho). Thanks for posting the recipe.


      Thanks for posting. I'm going to to try this. Looks delicious!


        Richard Chrz what say you?

        great looking loaf! Rye bread is one of my favorite breads. Chock full of caraway seeds, thank you very much. Keep testing and keep us posted johnec00


          This is one I have always wanted to try. Thank you for sharing.


            Hey, it is pastrami season, so I would say this fits right in with some Rye bread.

              Also a valid point. johnec00 LOL

            I love Jewish Rye. Well done!


              Your bread looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing your recipe.


                Tried the recipe with King Arthur bread flour to replace the first clear flour. King Arthur says the first clear is 15.3% protein and 0.8% ash. Their bread flour is 12.7% protein and 0.5% ash. I replaced the 409 grams first clear flour in the recipe with 391 grams bread flour and 18 grams wheat gluten. This mixture matches the 15.3% protein, but I can't do anything about the ash (charcoal ash probably won't work!!!). Also added 8 grams more water. The result was indistinguishable, so success!

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
