Got the syrup, got the eggs. Just don't have the book yet. Just might have to pull the trigger.

My friends had a cooking contest for their joint party. The theme was something rolled or on a roll. I rolled up some scotch egg fatties and smoked them. Within 20mins of me getting there the 2 fatties were completely gone and I had everybody coming up and telling me how delicious it was. They would try half of their piece without the spicy brown mustard and then i would tell them to try it with the brown mustard and they said it completely transformed the flavor profile. I ended up winning out of the 6 dishes that were in the contest.

I wish I had pictures of the finished product because it was a sight to behold!.

Scotch eggs are traditionally breaded and deep fried. That being said I have done them many ways on the smoker. Wrap in sausage then bacon or even melt a slice of cheese to finish. I have made them with turkey, duck, and pheasant eggs.

I made a Scotch Egg fatty earlier this year. Never had an Armadillo Egg, but it looks like the ancestor of the ABT.......I *might* have to combine the two.

A Scarmadillo Egg? Hmmmmmmmm........

There isn't a both choice

I think i prefer an armadillo egg because of the jalapeño, but it would be hard to go wrong with either.

I am absolutely shocked that 68% of the votes are "never had either".
I voted for the Armadillo eggs, but just by a very small margin. If there was a "both" option, I would have voted for that.

Either one of these are a great addition to the smoker when you're cooking something larger. I mean you've already got the smoker going, why not put some smoked treats on there too.

Just....wow.
There's a whole lot of happyness that has yet to be discovered here with as many people "out there in the cold".

I voted Armadillo Egg. I've never had a smoked scotch egg, but I don't care for the "traditional" scotch eggs. Then again, I'm not a big fan of eggs in general...

You don't see the Armadillo Eggs posts like you did a few years back when I first joined. Shoot, I don't see many ABT posts or a lot of the more eccentric creations posted in the archives.

I'm ashamed to admit I haven't tried either myself. But, I just don't get the egg thing in general. I'm not a big egg person. So I guess it would have to be the Armadillo Egg.
