I was reading Alelovers post and was sold on these right away, thanks Scott.

I have seen these around before and wondered why it took me so long to make something that is this easy.

These really are.... easy to make and should not be passed up.
Decided to do these on the GOSM with Chickeroni Bites, Italian Sausage Bites and Jack Daniels Bacon Double Cheeseburger Sliders.
 
I'll see if I can get those posted today as well.
Will be a little busy tomorrow with doing PP for the Cub Scouts Christmas Party, yeah  I took the day off to cook!
Pork Shots (Pork Candy)
 ​


 ​
Kielbasa wrapped bacon w/ brown sugar.



Ingredients:

  • Kielbasa
  • Bacon
  • Rub (Used my Pork Rub)
  • Brown sugar


Preparation: (step by step below)
  • Cut Kielbasa ½” thick
  • Wrap in a half piece of thick sliced bacon,
  • Fill with a 50/50 mix of brown sugar and your favorite rub, I went heavy on the brown sugar

 

Smoking/Grilling

  • Grilling: Place on the grill using indirect heat. Grill 30 minutes
  • Smoker: Smoke at 225° - 240° for 2 hours



Notes:

  • Very easy to make but had better results with wrapping the kielbasa with the bacon about 1/3rd from the bottom.
  • The bacon was too high and was falling in on itself

Conclusion:

  • So easy its almost a shame not to throw some of these on if you have some free space. My dinner Guests devoured these, I really liked them as well.


  • Sliced Kielbasa on slicer, since I had been using it for other slicing.




  • Mixing the spices.





  • Halved bacon, I had to slightly stretch these out, to get two lengths out of one.

 


 


 

  • Wrapped, Tooth-picked and ready for filling.


 


 


 


 


 

  • On the smoker (GOSM) 225° for two hours using Hickory.


 

  • Resting before serving.







  • Taste Test.

Those look delicious. They are awesome and so easy. I used thin fatty OM on mine. Your bacon was pretty meaty. Harder to stretch I guess. Can't wait to see what the rest of that stuff is.

Krout and[font=verdana, sans-serif]  kielbasa go together and adding cheese can only improve it, so I say sounds like a GREAT idea. Let us know how they turn out.[/font]

WOW... I'm gonna do these for apps on X-mas day too... But I have a question tho Sqwib..

Your ingredients list adds up to over 3 cups of topping all together.. but your little saucer with everything mixed up looks to be nowhere's near 3 cups... or do i just need to maybe get some stronger glasses ??

Looks delicious SQWIB!!!

Thanks

It was easy to stretch but think thinner would be better, especially at the overlap.
Your on a roll today Sqwib!

Thank you Sir

Revised the wording in the preparation:

Fill with a 50/50 mix of brown sugar and your favorite rub, I went heavy on the brown sugar

So its only 2 ingredients actually


Its on then. Post pics after they are out of the smoker....round Xmas time.

Great post! Love the pics. I'm sold!

I will be making these up to smoke along with the Christmas Day turkey. I'll put em' on a couple hours after the bird. and they should smoke up just in time to make perfect appetizers.

Might even try some with the Angus Kielbasa and thick cut pepper bacon I've got in the freezer.

Thanks for the great recipe and explanation.
