Today I tried making an new appetizer, and I think it failed. I have a Plan B and C, but after this one I'm not too enthusiastic. Either that or I'm just too full.

I tried to make "Beanie Balls". The first problem was they were a little bit tricky to make. So an appetizer that is tricky to make should have a big "wow" factor (in my opinion).

These were little balls of pork sausage, pressed with my thumb to make a bowl, rubbed, and filled with smokehouse beans. Then topped with 1 or 2 pieces of burnt ends and warapped in pig-candied bacon. I applied a glaze towards the end.

While I thought this sounded great, while eating them it just tasted like meaty smokehouse beans. So I'm not sure it was worth the effort.

Oh well. Maybe this weekend I'll try something else.

No pics. It was a practice run. Just 4 of them for lunch. So it never happened. They looked and smelled good, and even tasted good, but a bowl of extra meaty smokehouse beans would have tasted the same with less effort, so what's the point?

Thought that I would try my hand at one of these throwdowns. I did some salmon that I put in a brine overnight. I think it turned out pretty good.
