Even the hardest chicken wingnut gets a little tired of the little red variations on poultry limbs smothered in crimson heat. If you know one of these fanatics, here’s your chance to throw them into a tailspin. A smoldering, hot tailspin painted in green.
Try tea-smoking as an Asian alternative to boring roasted turkey this Christmas. It’s a style of cooking meat that hails from China’s Sichuan (formerly Szechuan) region, which is known for its hot, spicy cuisine.

This tradition goes back to the cavemen, who, not having olive spread handy, never used it on charred mammoth.
