    So tonight we have a house full of 10 year old girls staying over for my daughter's birthday. So forgive me if my thread here isn't as thorough as usual. Tomorrow I'm smoking for us and my parents for Father's Day. We're going to have Shooter Rick's Snake Bitten Chicken and a Huevos con Chorizo Fattie and some other sides. I've done one of these before and loved it, so I'm doing it again. I prepped everything tonight.

    Here goes...

    First my ingredients.
    1 lb of Bob Evans Original flavor sausage
    1/4 lb Chorizo sausage
    3 eggs - scrambled
    1/2 cup-ish - cheddar jack shredded cheese
    Bacon weave

    normally I put onion in here but things as hectic as they are around here, they got left out.
    I started by frying up the chorizo and setting on a paper towel on a plate to get rid of all the grease. Then I scrambled the eggs, added the chorizo back in, then off to the fridge to cool down while I rolled out the sausage and built the bacon weave.

    then a bed of the egg and chorizo mixture

    then a generous helping of chedder jack blend cheese

    I had Mrs. Dude snap a couple of picts while I was rolling. Maybe she's becoming a smoking convert or maybe she's just given up hope that I'm hooked on smoking meat. LOL Either way here's her fine camera work.

    All rolled up and down onto the bacon weave. She snapped a couple more picts as I was wrapping the bacon around the fattie.

    ...and since she complained about me pimping out my kids in all these posts, posing with the product, she insisted that I pose with this one.

    well the fattie is off to bed for the night. I've got 10lbs of chicken quarters rubbed down too. Sorry forgot to take picts of that. But we've all seen rubbed chicken.

    I'll be back tomorrow afternoon with updates on this smoke.

    G'nite all.

    Well got a little later start than I intended. But here's a shot at 11:45 am. I felt like doing this one on the Kettle.


    Looks like I got my greasy fingers on the lens.

    Here it is. Turned out nice. Only about half the bacon was edible. The other half was pretty flimsy and chewy. But overall, pretty happy. It had a great smoke ring and nice flavor.

    Hope all you dads are having a nice father's day.


    let it rest on the counter for about 30 minutes before slicing to let the cheese firm back up a bit. But after that it was gone pretty quickly.

    Off to post the start of the chicken thread.

    Thanks for viewing.
