I need some appetizer or finger food ideas for the 4th. I know ABTs, Moinks, onion rings wrapped in bacon....hoping for something not wrapped in bacon.
Smoked Eggs ( place on Smoker @ 225*F for 2.5hrs.) use as any other Egg . . . salad , Deviled , etc. Stickleback Potatoes (cut almost through the Tater , leaving appox. 1/4in.to hold it together , and place seasoning and Butter in the slits) , place on Smoker until toothpick soft . Bacon Candy .
Save the trimmings of Ribs to make snacks with a sauce over them , eat while cooking other stuff.
A few days before , make Smoked Cheese , cube it and snack .
Go to the Grill and do candied Pineapple slices (whole Pineapple) , Apples , Peaches . . .etc. (just cut in half and dip cut side in Turbinato Sugar and place on Grill to caramelize .)
Smoke some Nuts , Peanuts , Cashews , Pecans , Hazel Nuts , etc. You can candy these too . . .
Have fun and . . .
Don't forget the pork candy!
Also I have been looking and can't find it again, but there was a sausage stuffed onion wrapped in bacon that I saw here last year and I have got to try it!
