Default Pork/Pig Shot Appetizers

My co-workers love to celebrate birthdays with potlucks and I've been providing them with wings, MOINKs, ABTs, fatties, smoked meatloaf, ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. I try to keep a rotation going so I'm not bringing the same stuff all of the time (despite their addiction to MOINKs) so when I saw some recent posts on these "Pig Shots" and "Pork Shots" posted places including here and here I decided to try a batch.

In the early morning hours today I assembled 58 of these bacon wrapped around kielbasa discs (little "shot" glasses), piped in some cream cheese and topped with a brown sugar/rub combo:



I overslept a bit this morning and needed to make up a little time so this morning's cook was going to be in the OTP with a lid temp at just about 300 (usually a little cooler at the grate). Actually, I cook my MOINKs at a similar temp as well so I figured these could be done in probably under 90 mins.

After about 75-80 minutes of indirect cooking they were ready to go to work with me (well 55 of them went to work, 3 were part of a Quality Assurance testing at home):



They were pretty tasty and were well received at the office! These were a little on the sweet side so I'll be doing some testing with some hotter rubs, a little less brown sugar, and maybe some of the popular ABT fillings in the future.

Thanks for looking and thanks to those who've posted these "shots" before!

Those look fantastic.

Can I ask how long it took to assemble 58 of them? Seems like the longest part of the cook.

Those look great! I did 24 the other day and I was really tired of putting them together by the time I was done. Fifty-eight must have been fun. :)
