In the last few months there’s been a lot of smoking going on at the Hot Cuisine de Pierre. You may recall the pulled pork and already legendary Moink balls. Last weekend I tested the Barbecook Otto, an electric smoker. I left out the fish and meat. For smoking there were only vegetables such as pumpkin, parsnips and celeriac.Barbecook smoker chips Smoker OttoI started off with the smoked pumpkin. The plan: a sauce dip of pumpkin and chickpeas. So, a sort of hummus with a smoky taste. I topped it off with crispy bacon, yoghurt and pumpkin seeds. Surprisingly tasty and perfect after an autumn day’s smoking with friends and better beers.Barbecook smoker OttoPreparation

  1. Smoke the pumpkin for 30 to 40 minutes in the Barbecook Otto electric smoker.
  2. Finely mix the pumpkin with the chickpeas, tahini, olive oil and garlic.
  3. Fry all the herbs briefly in a dry pan. Make sure they don’t burn. Grind them finely in a mortar and mix into the pumpkin-chickpea puree.
  4. Freshen with lemon zest and lemon juice.
  5. For the yoghurt sauce, mix the olive oil with yoghurt, sour cream, lime juice and zest.
  6. Fry the bacon until crispy in a dry pan. Allow to drain on kitchen paper. Finely chop.
  7. Optionally, grill the pita bread or Turkish bread in the oven.
  8. Serve the hummus on a plate. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and yoghurt sauce. Garnish with watercress or other greens, pumpkin seeds and bacon crumble.
  9. Serve with crackers, crisps, Turkish bread or pita bread.
