    Cauliflower rice skeptic...

    Its simple, just "rice" it in a food processor. Just throw the florets and chop them up until they are the size of rice. This freezes well. I've made alot to freeze, just so I would have fast rice to cook. I want that chinese food white rice taste to go with some of my dishes, and i toss a bit of vinegar in with the rice in the pan and lightly salt. Its good. its so versatile. The only downfall is that it doesn't "absorb" some juices the same way that a true starch would, so if there are dishes where the rice is required to absorb some of the moisture, it may not work as well. As to cauli-mash, it took me a while to master a palatable mash. The food processor was the biggest requirement. I agree, cauliflower mash does taste different and not exact same texture. But I've loaded them up with so much ghee and seasonings that i traditionally put in regular potatoes, the taste is very close. I remember how bad my first attempt was compared to now and its a world of difference.

    Liquid Smoke?

    When I posted this, I had Everyday Paleo's Brother Mark BBQ sauce recipe in mind. But hers calls for honey, so I didn't make it. I did find the recipe below that I made over the weekend, but I took the base from EP's BBQ of using 1/2 pineapple juice and 1/2 apple juice and used that to cut on the volume on apple cider vinegar in stupid easy paleo's sauce. Stupid easy paleo does not call for liquid smoke, but I like a sweet smokey sauce (not carolina vinegar). Its easier to find a Whole 30 carolina sauce. I made the recipe below, but used .5 cup pineapple juice, .5 cup apple juice and .5 cup apple cider vinegar instead and added just 1-2 drops liquid smoke (you don't need alot, its potent). It was actually pretty good. I think when I make it again, I may change the ratio of pineapple juice to apple cider vinegar because it was still a little vinegar-y for my taste, but it was a nice surprise. Also, I don't think I let it simmer enough to really thicken good. I found I needed it to simmer longer than I thought to thicken up. Its probably not a BBQ I would prefer (heck, I love Sweet Baby Ray's), but definitely better than some other homemade recipes I've tried. http://stupideasypaleo.com/2013/09/16/kickin-bbq-shredded-chicken-guest-post/

    Liquid Smoke?

    Would this be Whole 30 compliant? I have it in my pantry from when I was just plain paleo, but curious if I can use it in a Whole 30 compliant homemade bbq sauce? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007A3TBXM/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1
