    Biscuits and Debris

    Tonight I'm having breakfast for dinner. Anyone ever make this? For the biscuits I used this recipe: http://www.lodgemfg.com/recipe/brigg...rmilk-biscuits

    I did not have self rising flour so I made my own: 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. My baking powder appears to be getting old, the biscuits did not rise as much as normal. I did not fold the dough 7 times as the times I've done this it seems to overwork the dough, 4-5 times seems about right. I used 3/4 butter and 1/4 home-rendered leaf lard in the dough and in the Dutch oven. I only heated the Dutch oven enough to melt the lard and butter - it was not hot. With the burning hot lid, the biscuits seem to brown evenly top and bottom this way.

    Cooked in a 5 qt. Dutch oven in my stove. I preheat the oven and Dutch oven lid as hot as it will go (about 550*) - that way the tops of the biscuits brown at about the same time that the bottoms brown.

    For the gravy, standard Southern cream gravy, a little heavy on the black pepper. I also add chicken stock to give it a little richness.

    Leftover pulled pork: I was visiting a college buddy last month and we smoked a 10lb pork butt for 11 hours over red oak and hickory in his big offset smoker along with a 17lb brisket (which cooked about 20 hours) - both turned out great. Pork butt was injected with a brine the night before and rubbed with Salt Lick Dry Rub. The brisket was rubbed with this too. https://saltlickbbq.com/ Click image for larger version  Name:	100_2773.JPG Views:	1 Size:	735.2 KB ID:	636949

            Science has yet to prove that there is such a thing as 'too much gravy'

          Everything looks so good. When I hear of or see dutch oven biscuits I am always reminded of the novel “Lonesome Dove” and one of the main characters, Gus McCrae, who always made biscuits in his dutch oven every morning.

          ”We don’t rent pigs.”

            "a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop"

            Whenever I make Dutch oven biscuits I always remember the ones from the Lonesome Dove miniseries.
