I’m still hanging on to summer! We will be headed out to our final campout of the season this weekend and I’ll be savoring every second. While I admittedly have a hard time letting go of the insanely hot weather, there is one thing I welcome with open arms: SOUP SEASON! Yes, I do realize you can have soup any day of the year – but there’s something so perfect about it as the weather begins to cool down.  I’ve been on a kick lately.  Anything SMOKED! You see a friend from work brought in some meat that her husband smoked for hours and hours on end and I nearly lost my mind. It was ah-ma-zing. For realz. A couple of weekends ago we went to the state fair with friends and I was [this] close to being sold a smoker. I wanted it bad. Finally, I attended Feast Portland this last weekend and one of the nighttime events I had the joy of partaking in was Smoked! (that’s the name of the event). Everything was wither smoked or cooked over an open flame. Oh. My. HEAVENLY!! 

So I’m sure you’re wondering what ALL of that has to do with my chowder eh? Well as you know I’m a huge Boar’s Head meats fan. Like huge. When I found out they had Boar’s Head SmokeMaster Black Forest Ham I almost couldn’t get my hands on it fast enough. With this delicious ham you get to enjoy a flavor rarely experienced in America. Crafted with the finest ingredients and exceptional care, this ham is naturally smoked with imported German beechwood. The result, a ham with a delicious, distinct flavor that is rich and smooth. Have I sold you yet? It’s killer folks. I’m not gonna lie. While I don’t currently have my own smoker {it’s on my wishlist} I generally buy my meat already smoked.  What are your favorite meats to smoke? Favorite recipes?

    Fall is definitely soup season – even though I eat it all year, I always feel like it more often when it cools off! This chowder looks fantastic!
