    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.


    • 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



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


    • 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


    • 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.

    Looks delicious SQWIB!!!

  3. 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.

    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 ??

    It was easy to stretch but think thinner would be better, especially at the overlap.

    Thank you Sir
    Don't know if I would smoke Kraut, just fermented a batch that was awesome, maybe I'll give it a shot


    Easy and good, thanks.

    Posted these, they are Chickeroni Bites and Italian Sausage bites.

    Thank you
    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


    Kudos to everyone involved in the creation of this recipe.

    Thanks Jimmy

    And so easy, they should be a staple for filling up empty smoker space. Thanks
  18. 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.
