Smoked Leftover Soup

Last night I made Beef Back Ribs, Ratatouille and Chicken. Tonight I turned that into soup! This soup is AMAZING! Holy cow. I will be making this double meal into our rotation a lot this winter! I don't see why you couldn't use any type of leftover BBQ, but having the bones to make a fresh stock is great.

Below are the 3 ingredients that went into the soup.









So, first I pulled most of the chicken meat off the bone. I set this aside for easy weeknight sandwiches and quesadillas.



Then I put the chicken bones and the beef rib leftovers (Nearly a full rack left) into a large stock pot.



I covered that in water and brought it to a boil.



After all the meat boiled off the bones, I fished the bones out and added all the leftover Ratatouille. 







When it came back to a boil, I let it roll for about another 5 minutes then turned the heat off and got ready to serve!!

    I like when the left overs turn out just as good or better then the original cook.

    Brother Grim it looks fantastic. I'm sure that the Soup Gods are smiling down from above my friend.

    Last night's dinner was great. But very generic. We have eaten it tons of times. This soup was a first and it's definitely better than dinner last night.

    I'm not really a huge soup person. But dang this was great. The smoke flavor came through but wasn't overpowering. I may actually smoke the soup next time.

    I hear ya brother. In general I much prefer large quantities of meat myself. However there are a few soups that really are excellent in their own right. Yours certainly appears to be one of them.
