    just a lil something i threw to gether to get done while brisket is resting. bought some of those big portabellas, yano softball diameter. i have never tried them before but we gonna wing this. i hope this turns into something edible. took the stems out of the shrooms, diced, a stick of celery also diced, a couple slices off a vidalia onion diced, and some minced garlic. sauted all in butter til tender(wanted to do it with some bacon and in the bacon fat but all outta bacon-bob gonna have a field day on this one!!!) so just used butter about a third a stick. added some pepper and some chefs shake and spooned equally into shrooms. topped off with mozzerella cheese balls-the fresh type mozzerella and into smoker. here a before pic

    will put a finish pic and report on taste. like i said i have never had these mushrooms before but being i like all other mushrooms i see no reason why these would not be good. thks for ckin my qview!!!

    Sounds good to me, erain!....I love portabellos....they're sort of a "meaty" mushroom, if you will. They stand up well to various types of cooking without turning to mush.

    Can't wait to see the qview!

    chef_boy812 is right, ya they do look like mallows... and your rite about the water as well, i just cut a slit and spread shroom a bit. drains nice and cant even tell.

    also eric correct on what he said, very meaty shroom, is a good cooker and a better eater!!!
    here are finished, that mozzerella goes great with the ports. the bacon woulda been good also but were still good eats without.

    cut apart view

    thks for ckin my qview!!! try these wont be disappointed!!!

    I luv stuffed shrooms. Try some left over brisket shavings, dice them stems, maybe a touch of cream cheese, and just about anything else. Steak shavings will work well with them also. Haven't tried pork butt yet. A local eatery here serves them up as Cow Pies with prime rib shavings there okay but there better if ya make them yourself. I also use sausage and cream cheese mixture. There almost endless like fatties. Might be time for a Porta throw down. lol
