That does sound really good! I am so glad I came on the internet before I headed out to the market this morning. I'm planning on making this chowder this afternoon (and baking some nice bread too! I feel so domestic...LOL ) I'm going to use a can of smoked clams and let you know how it works out!

things like this make me wonder why foodtv starts it's daily programming at 9:30am on weekdays. what about all of those little old ladies (and me ) that like to get thier food shopping done early, and plan the day's meals just as early?

Hehe.. I'm the same way. I like doing my food shopping EARLY (like right when the store opens) There is usually only a handful of people out shopping at that time and it's so much easier! Plus, planning and preparing things early means relaxing and not stressing about "what's for supper" later on?

Anyhow, I made this chowder tonight and I used smoked clams. It turned out so delicious! I also omitted the bacon and just sauteed the veg in a pat of butter - everything caramalized nicely and the flavour was terrific. The smoked clams really added a nice, subtle flavour - I will be making this again!

For those who love a nice, creamy clam chowder, give it a try with the smoked clams... it's really quite delicious.

ROFL! I just showed this to PeppA, and she came >< that close to spraying pop out through her nose and over the screen of my laptop!

Heck, I may have to try the smoked clams once, to see what it tastes like.

grumbl, i like to do my food shopping after working my weekly midnight shifts, around 7:30 or 8am. it's just me, and very short old ladies on a mission.
lol, you wouldn't believe how often i am asked to get stuff form the top shelves
there's better selection, especially with meats; the shelves are rarely out of anything; and you begin the day having already accomplished one of your tasks that would be much more time consuming later.

I enjoy going shopping at 1 or 2am every once in a while. The selection stinks, but the people watching is great. You get some real freaks in the supermarket at those times. I wonder if they are looking at me thinking the same thing

Anyway, I think you guys are right about using butter. Olive oil might make it taste funny. And kitchenelf, your idea of using smoke flavouring is a good one. That would give it a slightly smokey "bacon" flavour without the actual bacon.
To add teh smokey flavor that will be missed by the omission of bacon, add just a touch of hickory liquid smoke flavoring. But be careful as it's a very strong flavoring. A few drops goes a long way. And you chowder will gain a wonderfully smokey accent that will ballance perfectly against the salt and the clam sweetness.
