    Thanks Gary for the kind words appreciate them.

    Thanks bertman, good luck on the snack sticks. I haven't gotten into the jerky, sticks, sausage aspect of smoking, but am planning on it in the very near future. Let us know if you try the shots out.

    Thanks for kind words and like crazymoon, They are always a party favorite.

    Geebs, you should also look into the Vortex for the Kettle. You achieve extremely high heat with it. Wings and oil-less fried food become a snap to make with it.

    Thanks troutman, they're very addicting. They may look small, but are very filling.

    meatallica, mcokevin and rings thanks for the like appreciate it. I hope I haven't missed anyone. If I did I truly apologize.

    Thanks SmokinVol for the kind words and like appreciate them.

    Thanks for the like and read daricksta, They've been around for quite awhile. I just figured I'd bring them back into the limelight with summer coming. BTW they taste even better then they look.

    As I am sitting here chewing on some jerky I pulled out of the smoker this morning, I see this post... Now I feel covetous for your pork shots and forsake the jerky! What are you doing to me?!?! I have seen these done before, but now I think these have to make it to the short list! Fantastic!

    Those look great. Might try it this weekend.
    How long do they usually take?

    Sorry Metsfan, I can't say for sure. I think this one was about an hour and a half to two hours. I cook indirect until the bacon is where I want it. Everything I used was already cooked except the bacon. Since the bacon was the only variable I just waited until I got the desired crispness. If your using a higher heat just make sure that the bottom of the kielbasa doesn't burn. I also rotate the shots if I'm finding hot spots during my cook.

    Made these today.
    OMG, these are great. I just put them in the Webber at 550 degrees and grilled them hot and fast. Made the bacon nice and crispy.
    I just used a Webber pork rub from a jar and sprinkled it over the whole thing lightly after I set them on the grill.
    Everyone loved them.
    Definitely will be making these again. I am sure they will only get better as I figure out what sausage and cheese, seasoning I like best.

    I hope you do Suam, they are good and don't usually last.

    Glad you like them. Like a fatty the stuffing idea's are endless.

  19. IDK if i missed it but whats the approx time? I am thinking of adding them to the menu for the 4th.

    Poobah, The bacon is the only thing that isn't precooked. So it depends on what temp your smoking at and how crispy you want your bacon. I don't really watch the time or temp when doing pork shot's I go by how the bacon looks. Best guess this batch was about an hour and a half to two hours. Let us know if you try them and how they turn out.
