    Running out the last of my propane today in anticipation of the WSM that is sitting in my garage until an x-mas day rib smoke. So using the GOSM, and making ABT's which I feel the GOSM gasser does really well.

    (3) different versions:

    1st version is a jalapeno stuffed with a mixture of johnsonville brat, diced onion, diced jalapeno, minced garlic and sauerkraut, then topped with a chink of kilbasa before beign topped and wrapped in bacon.

    2nd version is a variation of the above with no kilbasa.

    Both of these will be interesting twists, and I think they will be good, gonna serve them with some dusseldorf mustard to dip them in

    the 3rd version is a jalapeno stuffed with an italian sausage mix containing diced jalapeno, minced garlic, and mozzerella cheese. Topped & wrapped in bacon.

    Made the leftover sausage mixtures into balls, and took the leftover brats I didnt remove the casing from and a couple small links of kilbasa & tossed them on the smoker as well.

    Here are some of my prep pics:

    thanks

    Just pulled the brats, the kilbasa, and the sausage balls off.

    All good, love brats off the smoker, and the sausage ball with the mix I used in the brat ABT was excellent. the little bit of kraut really gives that mix a nice tang.

    ABT's maybe have 25 minutes left to go..

    thanks y'all, gonna have the ABT leftovers tonight in the form of some tacos with a couple fried eggs added to the mix..

    the 2 layer carrot cake was pretty good(spicy, scratch version of the cake and cream cheese frosting from the recipe in Jow of Cooking, I only added a little ginger into the mix)., I am giving half to my boss with the hopes of an x-mas bonus coming my way(I share my bbq with him as well.)
