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!

Outstanding idea!

They would be too sweet for my bride, thinking a tad bit of cheddar cheese instead of brown sugar.

I've been brainstorming other versions all night. One was sticking a shroom in the cream cheese so the thing looks like an umbrella. "Pigbrellas"?

I'd love to take credit, but as mentioned, I stole, er... borrowed the idea.

Hmmm.... Two types of meat, smoked, and somewhat spherical in appearance. I wonder if these would qualify as.... MEATBALLS ???
