Daughter had given us some sweet peppers so we decided it was time for some peppers with cream cheese topped with bacon bits and some Jeff's rub

Also had never made pork shots so thought it was time. Half just got ring bologna and cheddar cheese and the others had ring bologna, with breakfast sausage mixed with cream cheese and then topped with cheddar.

Just had to try some smoked shotgun shells! Stuffed some with the leftover breakfast sausage and cream cheese mixture and cheddar cheese and the rest with just breakfast sausage and cheddar cheese.

Wrapped in bacon, brushed on some Cookies bbq sauce, and sprinkled with Jeff's rub.

Smoked at 250 degrees for 2 hours, then another coat of bbq sauce and then finished in oven at 275 for another 30 minutes. Pellets were just about all burned out.

Made for a full smoker!

Thought I should share a pic of the pies my wife made... 2 butterfinger pie, recipe courtesy of chopsaw chopsaw . These were for my dad, he took them to a get together with mom's nursing classmates and their husband's.

We probably should have tasted them for quality control!
My wife recently went to the Dr and was told her cholesterol was a little high and that she could change her eating habits to help with that... I was told this meal wasn't what they meant! :emoji_blush: but it sure was good!

Thanks for looking!

Very nice, Ryan!
I'm especially interested in the Shotgun Shells.
Did the pasta soften up with moisture from the filling and sauce?
I'm assuming it wasn't pre-cooked.....

Thanks Dan! You're correct, they weren't precooked. And they did soften up during the cook, did have a couple hard places on ends where they weren't covered. If I remember correctly in the video made by TulsaJeff TulsaJeff he recommended putting in fridge for a couple hours or overnight to give more time to soften but I didn't have a couple hours to wait and definitely not the patience to wait overnight!

You definitely won't be disappointed! And you can use anything you want... we liked the ones with added breakfast sausage and cream cheese better!

They are off the chart good. Plus you can mix up the sausage and cheese for incredible variety in one cook. They are just stupid goood, Jake.

Thanks David! Good news is we got back half of one pie, bad news is I only got one piece and my wife gave the rest to our son! Good thing I love him! Lol
