    I have seen these mentioned several times throughout the forums. Quite regularly, they are mentioned as an appetizer for big events. I thought they looked good, so I thought I’d try em. Here’s a couple pics of my try. A few were pepper jack, a few cheddar, and a few with cream cheese.

    The early stages, just into the smoker.

    Part way through.

    The final products.

    They turned out pretty darn good. A few minor adjustments for future attempts, but a definite must for a gathering.

    How about some more details on how these were made and what they are made from.

    Sure. I took a good kielbasa, cut 3/4 inch medallions, wrapped them with bacon, putting the medallions at the bottom of the bacon wrap and secured with toothpicks. On top of the kielbasa, in the pocket formed by the bacon, I added the different types of cheese each were roughly 1/2 inch cubes. 225-250* for 90 minutes in the smoker. I added a very small amount of wood chips to generate smoke, and they came out good, but had a lot of smoke flavor.

    Thanks guys. They did turn out pretty good, but I think next time I’m gonna go with a good thick cut bacon, and I liked the cheese choices, but I may try adding a little jalapeño jelly to the cream cheese and mix that together and form a little ball to add to the tops. The smoke was a bit strong, so I think I might limit the smoke even more. I used a small amount, but may cut back a bit.

    Definitely gonna do round two soon
