Today's experiment - stuffed peppers
 
Grew up with stuffed peppers... bell peppers stuffed with rice/sausage blend in a tomato based sauce...
thought it was time for a Brethren-influenced update.

Started off whipping up a batch of Keri C.'s beans... using Plowboy's Bovine Bold and
Bush's (new) Texas Ranchero beans (pinto beans with jalepenos in a red chili sauce)...
which eliminates the addition of cayenne powder in the recipe... and without green peppers...
its flavor will be added later.

The peppers of tonights selection...

The filling... thought about adding sliced sections of fatties... didn't work out that well...
wound up rolling and molding the fatty fixings into each pepper. Three pepper hold Jimmy Dean maple
and the big one iin the back is the Hot sausage.

I hope it tastes as good as it sounds...will report back after dinnertime tonite.

That looks like a great meal! Keep us posted.

That looks really, really good so far. The stuffed peppers I grew up with were more like mini meatloafs in a bell pepper shell with a little sauce on top for the final few minutes of the cook. I'm liking this bean lake idea!

That looks great!
What are you cooking it on or in?

The pot (without lid) was placed in the Bubba keg to be fire-roasted on a lowered grate @ 4:00 pm ... a few inches above the fire.

My thoughts exactly. I'll be giving this variation a try soon. Thank you.

Great start so far. Keep us posted :thumb:

Yeah, that looks really good. Make sure all matches and sources of sparks or ignition are controlled before eating, though. Whew, what a brew! :becky:

Final thoughts...

Total time was 3 hours at 225-230 in the Bubba Keg.

The pepper softened up nicely during the time... however packed it up too dense, tho... close to 1 lb by itself. The family and myself gave up on the volume of the stuffed meat. The beans simmered without a problem... and the flavors were great.

Next time... will consider a less dense meat.

Thanks for the update. I will have to give a try. And, you gotta love that Bubba Keg.

Great idea... sugary, bacon fatty beans cooking my pepper down... stuffing diluted with a little rice and some diced tomatoes/onion. Making my mouth water here. Grow peppers, grow.

Those look good and stuffed peppers are some of my favorites too. Here's how I did mine on the Egg. Definitely more of a roasted than smoked pepper but they were very good.
