Recipe: Smoked Chicken Sandwich with Summer Confetti
Summary: If the previous sandwich was country singer Tim McGraw, this would be Faith Hill— closely related, but this one’s definitely prettier, with a more elegant appearance. It resembles a summer garden, with its bright bits of herbs, tomato, onion, and peppers.
Recipe: Smoked Albacore–Potato Salad
Summary: A West Coast favorite for smoking, albacore brims with fish oils that flavor it richly. We use it more frequently for smoking than the more delicate yellowfin tuna.

Recipe: Rosé Squirt
Summary: Hey, are you having a flashback to summers when those big grouchy kids were bringing you down, taking your hat, calling you squirt? Don’t let those memories tarnish your sunshiny afternoons and evenings. Remember two things and you’ll be able to relax in suitable summer fashion. First, those kids were just jealous (and would be even more so if they knew about the beautiful hotweather bashes you have now), and second, you have the last laugh because you now know that the Squirt is a tall, refreshing, bubbly drink that goes with a backyard barbecue or luscious lawn party, or with sitting with that perfect person as the sun goes down in July.
