    Those look delicious, erain. I'll have to give them a try next time I smoke. Maybe that might convince my guys that brussel sprouts are good. [​IMG]

    I think so too, but no one else here does. I get to eat them all by myself. On second thought maybe I'll just fix them and I'll keep them for myself. I won't share any. [​IMG]

    Those look fantastic. Brussels sprouts are one of our favorite vegetables. Love them roasted, steamed, braised, shredded, just about any way is fine. This is a new one for me. The insides look so creamy.

    What temp did you use and what is the average time cooking time?

    I love the combination of bacon and sprouts. My bride doesn't much care for bacon or other porky products so may have to improvise on these.

    Points to you erain for a interesting and delicious looking sprout prep. [​IMG]

    Ma, erain that's just fantastic! Brussel Sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables and you sure can make them look good! [​IMG]
     
  15. I tried these over the weekend in my smoker, and they were great. I am hooked. I sprinkled rub mix on both the Brussel Sprouts and the bacon after wrapped.

    It did seem like the sprout need a little marinade on the inside to get a bit more flavor, maybe a salt water marinade for a day or two would help.


    I also tried these on the grill and they turned out terrible. Hard to control the flames, bacon unwrapped, Brussel Sprouts themselves very tough. you need to parboil them I think to make them tender, if they are to be cooked on the grill. The smoker is the way to go.
