    Well we were visiting with our neighbors and asked them over for dinner. We decided to make up some Meat candy, a couple fatties. One a philly cheesteak and one a spin on piazza but no peppers as one of the kids is allergic, and we did a taco pasta salad. Well it was their kids first time at smoked food... Wow did they enjoy.....

    The meat candy, Medjool dates pitted and stuffed with homade spicy Italian sausage then wrapped in bacon. On the smoker until cooked to 160 this time as bacon is just crisp.
    We did a philly Cheese steak fattie, peppers, onions and provolone cheese, The second we stuffed with spicy Italian sausage, black forest ham, beirwurst sausage, and fresh mushroom and onion with pizza sauce. The salad is a Taco pasta salad that our kids usually devour lol. The sausage and ham were all home made as well.

    The meat candy is a nice treat, My wife hates dates but loves these. When you bite into them you get the nice spicy sausage the sweetness of the date and some texture of it but then the smokey saltiness of the bacon is in the mixture. So to answer, you taste the texture and sweetness to some extent, but it is wrapped in all the other tastes that you don't know it is a date. We usually let people try them before we tell them lol and so far most people love them.
    Thx, all for the comments and likes. Much appreciated.
