Talking Holy Pork! Pig Shots on the Egg

I recently ran across an appetizer called "Pig Shots" on another site and decided to give them a try.

When Mrs. South bit into one, there was a five second pause followed by "OH MY GOD !!!" Yep, they're pretty good. According to her, they're my go-to appetizer now, required at all BBQ-like gatherings.

I started with a plain old store bought Polish Keilbasa, cut into discs about 1/2 inch tall with the casings removed (they make them too chewy, apparently).

Then I took 1/2 strip of bacon and wrapped it around each disc (creating a shot glass of sorts) and secured with a single toothpick run through.

I filled the shot glasses half way up with some plain (microwave softened) Philly Cream Cheese.

I filled them the rest of the way (even overflowed a bit) with dark brown sugar.

I sprinkled half of them with my beloved Yardbird for some comparisons later.

On to the LBGE they went (sweet blue / light hickory). 225 for 2 hours. They ended up at about 180 internal.

Ready to pull after two hours...

Mrs. South plated them up and tried one. OMG moment referenced above followed 5 seconds later.

She preferred the ones w/o the rub. I honestly couldn't tell the difference. Interesting. I'll absolutely be doing these again.

Highly recommended, Brethren!
