CROINKS, Bloomin' SPAM and a Mexican Fatty (q-vue heavy)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Allrighty there! The kids are here for the summer and the grillin' smokin' season begins in earnest. They flew in from Virginia Beach yesterday into Missouri Cattle Country and here we go. First day up~ Croinks, Bloomin' SPAM and a Fattie (for lunch) ; Beef Short Ribs and a pair of Beer-Can Chickens (Fer Supper). Ribs & Birds on a separate post.

Here's the goods-

The kids decided on a mellow Mexican themed fatty. Just some cheese and salsa with Aztecs on the side~

CROINKS (CRanberry OINK) were a must-have after they had learned of my invention a few weeks back. Here we have a two-child assembly line going~

Another variation on the theme....black olives stuffed with EZ Cheeze, then rolled into the pork ~ Allright!

All rolled in SHOOTERRICK'S COPPERHEAD SNAKEBITE RUB. Also on the menu, COWGIRL'S "bloomin' SPAM" her wonderful take on the blooming onion but a heck of a lot better! Covered it in ALWAN & SONS bbq sauce, a great sauce from the defunct "sauce-exchange" program we used to run. Not as good as their "Sweet Habanero" sauce, but still mighty fine!

Here they are on the smoker over Mesquite~

Later on, CROINKS and Bloomin'-SPAM are ready!

Shortly thereafter, the Mexican Fatty~

And here she is is...sliced, ready to go with some Aztecs on the side and hot sauces for the adventurous!

My kids say thanks for lookin' at their cookin'!!

Hey great name! We'll call then OLIVEOINKS! PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

They were pretty darn good, by the way. Not as good as the cranberries, but we're thinkin' maybe some Feta cheese in the olives would be awesome!

You mentioned maybe putting feta in the olivoinks. Why not stuff some kalamata olives with feta and wrap them in gyro meat? Gyroinks?

That's a great looking smoke.
Plus I'm always a fan of child labor. Loved that you rolled them in snake bitten rub, bet that came out great!
