Welcome to my world. I even dream about Kick Ass Grillin’. Last night, I had an amazing dream about smoking all kinds of beans and peas and turning them into snacks as well as killer ingredients. Instead of seeking a dream interpreter, I went to the next best thing: Twitter. In no time, I had a number of people sending me great ideas. I had not even thought of edamame or garbanzo beans.

So tonight, the quest for the perfect smokey snack began. Currently, there are pinto beans, black beans, black eyed peas and garbanzo beans soaking overnight to get ready for some taste trials tomorrow. That wasn’t enough. I went back to the store and got some shelled edamame beans. Tossed them in a bag with olive oil and Smoked Jalapeno Salt. Then, put them in a grilling wok on the pellet grill at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. That was a pretty intense flavor in a crispy snack. Definitely a keeper.

Tomorrow’s a new day and a new milestone in the quest for the perfect bite!
