I call this one my "Behemoth BLT." It is a classic bacon-lettuce-tomato, but like on steroids. You'll see as we build this thing. I must say from the getgo it was the most delicious and enjoyable sammich I have ever made. Here is a shot of the ingredients (minus the grilled chicken). Those are extra grande sized tortillas by the way.

Image

Let's head out to the pit now and get the chicken goin'. You can see that I added a hunk of lump to give the bird a subtle but distinct mesquite nuance.

ImageImage

A better examination of the grilled bird...

Image

And now pulled, ready for use in the sammich...

Image

Now we need the bacon. (Mmmmm... bacon!) And a whole pound of it. I hot smoked it via side firebox with hickory for the smoke. Oh hold me back!

Image

Plated...

Image

Now it is time to create. Notice I overlayed two of those extra grande sized tortillas (only for with which to begin!). So, on goes the bacon, on goes the pulled chicken.

Image

What say you we top that with a little shredded Romaine lettuce and Crema Mexicana (sour cream)?

Image

And how about some sliced cherry tomatoes and black olives?

Image

There. No, not quite... what about some alfalfa sprouts (mostly got buried), guacamole, queso fresco cheese, and crumbled chicharrones? I agree. Let's get 'em on there!

Image

Oh dear..., you can see from the above pic I let it get away from me. No way I was gonna wrap this monster with a mere two huge tortillas. So I underlaid yet two more to form a + sign confiuration. Only then could I contain all the ingredients. And so here we go friends, one behemoth BLT sammich with a side order of chile limon chicharrones. Wish I could upload it right to your dinner plate (assuming the plate was big enough!).

Most impressive! What was the inspiration behind this? You should pitch the concept to a food truck or local sandwich shop!

Yes, Tbk, you're not kidding. Fortunately, this kind of thing is a rather rare indulgence for me. I'll have to feed off memories of it now for awhile. :D

The inspiration sprang from a challenge issued to me to Q up a BIG Sammich. I've always been a fan of classic BLT's. Then because of all the other Mexican ingredients I had for the other meal, I thought I could make use of them here as well. I luv the way the tortillas made it user friendly to eat. :lol: That would be great to get, say, McD's to take it on! I imagine the food police would be on them like stink on you know what.

So what did everyone else get to eat? :twisted:

Nice looking sammich. The tortillas were a good idea, as I think the average submarine bun or French loaf wouldn't stand up to the filling.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

No one else, other than dog and bird. I packed it down in two sittings. The tortillas did make it rather user friendly.

I wish you could upload that wrap to my dinner plate. That is one heck of a BLT. You said crema mexicana and then sour cream in paranthesis. I was confused at first, thinking you thought they were the same thing. But then I went back and looked at your picture of ingredients and it was crema. Two totally different animals, similar, but different. I applaud your use of crema and queso fresco! Bravo!

WOW!!! I am starving now! What brand of guac is that? Do you have any good guac recipes, being that you are from the southwest?
