We went across the river for a mini family reunion and ate at a Montana Jack’s. This was my first time in a Montana Jack’s I thought the food was good, but I did not try the Q. I opted for the blackened grouper since I haven had any since we moved from Florida many 24 hours ago.
Among other things they brought to the table there was fresh baked bread with two kinds of whipped butter. One of the whipped butter had bits of strawberries. I’ve had that before and it’s ok, just not what I wanted. The other whipped butter had a slight hickory smoked flavor to it. At first I thought I was imagining the very slight smoky taste, particularly since my wife didn’t say anything (she is a picky eater and lately has been complaining about how much I smoke). Someone at my table mentioned the faint smoke taste and as we were talking about it my wife admitted she hadn’t noticed it until we started talking about it.
Has anyone here ever attempted smoking butter? I just ordered a cold smoke baffle for smoking cheese, and smoked butter really has me intrigued.
