Hm. Just found it in Urban Dictionary. Seems the meaning changed when I wasn't looking.

When folks had it for breakfast back in the seventies, it was steak, eggs, and bourbon. The Age of Innocence, I guess. The times they are a-changin'.

(Though it never was safe for work!)

See! We're all fried as a society. Say, that might make a good thread!

I've also had it as "cowboy caviar," as mentioned previously, with lots of black beans, corn, cilantro, and avocado. No black eyed peas, that I recall anyway. This was back when I still lived in Colorado.
Yes!

That’s how I’ve heard it as “cowboy caviar”

I’ve yet to have any though…

They put their potatoes in the smoker and then make potato salad with them? That's genius!
I smoke potatoes before making mashed potatoes. I have also made mashed potatoes and put a couple of bowls in the smoker.

Works well either way.

Another simple trick- peel and smoke hard boiled eggs.
Good straight up or as deviled eggs.

It was all the rage about 15-20 years ago in these parts. In every deli case next to the potato salad. We used it as a chip dip, in place of fresh salsa.
I prefer fresh salsa, too.
But I love the idea of being greeted by your new neighbors w/ any kind of welcome token.
Next up - borrowing tools?
