    Flatten out the sausage and season with your preferred spices. I used Spanish smoked paprika, *Chimayo mild powder, and coarse smoked sea salt.
    ** Place thin sliced onion rings in the middle.
    Place a frozen chile relleno (Smart & Final) in the middle over the onion rings, and then cover it with thin sliced onions rings.
    Wrap it up like a burrito; rolling it might break the frozen chile relleno. Give it a Bud bath, and then dust outer sausage with your choice of spices.
    Place it in smoker at/near 225°, because it is a rustic Tex-Mex dish I used mesquite wood. Smoke it till inside temperature hits 170° and remove.
    Serving suggestion: Corn or flour tortillas and your brew of choice.

    This recipe is wide open for interpretation, be my guest.
    * You can always sub chile powder for Chimayo powder, or most other chile powders.
    ** Onions are an option. I use fresh onions rings because I like them to have some texture, you can sauté the onions, omit them, your call. Here's the link to the finished work

  2. looks good, by the way, smart and final has briskets for 1.59#

    Looks really good Rich, your a master of the art. [​IMG] For me though, I wouldn't like the onions like that, my uncle always told me, fry them in butter or bacon grease, when they brown, they cookin, when they black, they done! Seriously, I do like them fried crisp and brown. I will try your idea soon. Terry
