    had some leftover gizzards and a sausage so why not
    made some batter and fried the gizzards
    added jalapenos and some hot jalapeno cheese
    wrapped in wax paper
    bacon weave and wrapped
    add a little rub before going in
    whoops must have dropped a gizzard for my help

    HA!
    Now THAT is original. Not a fan of gizzards here but I have to admit when I see something that is original and I'm betting that will be a tasty fattie!
    Gotta give you points even before you smoke it!

    allright heres some final pics,
    i guess being so cold aint so bad it makes the mind think of strange things!
    no sure how healthy this one is, fried gizzards, sausage and bacon?
    but boy did it taste good
    Oh i guess the jalapeno counts as a veggie so it is ok?

    I love chicken and turkey liver (beef too!), not much for the gizzard. might have to try it in a fatty though!
     
  11. Damn. I would eat that!
    Nice imagination.

    need some help guys, gonna do this again this weekend but would like some advice on how to soften up those gizzards so i dont have to fry them first,    if i pre smoke them for a few hours in some marinade would that do the trick?

    I used to hate gizzards because of their texture.  Then I hit my favorite Basque restaurant where they are wonderful.  I think they are carefully trimmed.  Lots of connective tissue there.  Then they are simmered slowly.  Then the dish is created.  Hope this helps.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Wow!!! There's some names from the ole days. Rick I would think that pre cooking in a liqued or a pressure cook would do it. I myself am
    More a liver fan.

    Rick, evening. I put the gizzards in a pressure cooker for about 45 minutes. Beer, chicken boullion and spices. Let them cool in the liquid to absorb the good stuff. They still have "tooth" appeal. Then I usually batter and deep fry but I think they would be ready for the "fatty" at this point.

    You could always check them and add more cooking time if they needed it.

    Then I would dry them and throw in the smoker for 1-2 hrs.
