    I admit it. I love pork. In a homage to pork, I created a dish that uses it in four forms. Welcome to Quatre Cochons de Montagne.

    I started by cutting some jalapeno jack cheese into sticks about 1/2 by 1/4 inch.


    I put an elongated patty of bulk sausage (I used my Passing Wind Estates Breakfast Sausage) on the counter. I pressed a cheese stick into it.


    I pulled the sausage up the sides of the cheese.


    I took some more sausage and sealed the top off the cheese. Welcome to the first pig, breakfast sausage.


    I thin sliced some loin ham and draped it around the sausage. Hello second pig, ham.


    I cut some 3/8 inch slices off a pork loin roast. I put a slice between layers of was paper and pounded it thin with a mallet.



    I wrapped the pounded loin around the ham. Here's the third pig, pork loin.


    I wrapped a slice of bacon around each pork package. The last but not least pig, bacon.



    I gave them a generous sprinkling with Louisiana Grills Bourban Molasses Rub.


    I fired the pellet smoker up to 350 F and put the Cochons on for 50 minutes.


    I turned them a couple of times during the cooking.


    The finished product.



    The Verdict

    What's not to like? The bacon and ham gave a nice cured touch. The sausage gave it a nice spice profile. The rub caramelized on the bacon. These are great!

    Very creative. I don't know about Canada but in the States, go to any Fair, put that on a stick, dip in Batter and Deep Fry it and you would be a rich man...JJ

    I'm shattered, Dave. I don't lay awake thinking of food. I dream about food while I'm sleeping.

    Thanks for the kind words.
