Smoked Hangover Soup

There are a lot of Hangover Soup recipes that claim to help you recover after a big party. Most of the recipes I’ve found are Asian and European variations. My version uses Eastern European seasonings and is packed with protein and flavor from bacon, pork loin, kielbasa and a surprise ingredient – dill pickles. Letting it stew slowly in the smoker adds even more depth to the flavors. I can’t guarantee it will cure your hangover but it IS perfect on a cold winter night.
