Oskar Blues Liquids & Solids has yet to solidify
Jason Rogers has a "Midnight Toker."
Oskar Blues's benefit golf tourney today at Twin Peaks is a big hit, with all 144 slots sold out. But when the golf is over, the participants won't be able to retire to the new Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids & Solids in Longmont, as originally planned. That's because the still-in-the-works restaurant has run into a permitting delay. So instead, they'll be partying at the clubhouse.
But while Liquids & Solids has yet to solidify, Jason Rogers, the chef who just joined the Oskar Blues team to run that kitchen and oversee Oskar Blues Grill & Brew brewpub in Lyons, has added a Southern Pride smoker to his culinary gear lineup, dubbing it "the Midnight Toker," according to Oskar Blues spokesman Marty Jones.
Pork shoulders get a fourteen-hour, overnight smoke over apple wood; ribs go into the Toker for four hours. And that mobile smoker will be working overtime at the club house today, feeding the duffers.
