    Apple Sausage Pork Tenderloin

    I am not a fan of pork tenderloin. It dries out easily and doesn’t have a particularly good texture. However, the flavour is good so I decided to try it a unique way. The first problem is the shape of the tenderloin. It has a narrow tip that overcooks. They usually come in a package of two and...

    Smoked Stuffed Pork Chops

    I want to give a shout out to forum user Chilirelleno! On Sunday I successfully accomplished his recipe and instructions for smoked stuffed pork chops. Due to lack of availability, I had to use Anaheim Peppers. I smoked the chops for two hours at 250 with hickory and they turned out really great.

    Armadillo Eggs in the Shell

    If you haven’t heard of Armadillo eggs before, they are a cheese stuffed jalapeno wrapped in sausage and smoked. While they are very tasty, I decided they would be better with a seasoned crispy crust. Welcome to Armadillo Eggs in the Shell! I used my OFG Breakfast Sausage for the sausage but...

    So I did a ten hour smoke with Hickory and Cherry. I wanted to mix up my own rub with sweet paprika instead of spicy hungarian paprika.
