    1st Poppers

    Starting a new popper recipe. I just took 1lb of pulled pork and added seasonings resized from Meatheads Italian sausage recipe to use for the meat. I will use cream cheese, extra sharp cheddar, cooked bacon pieces and mix tomorrow and put in halved lg. jalapenos I will scrape the ribs well in half of the jalapenos for the wife as she does not care for heat. The other half I will just seed and when stuffed top with chipotle powder as I like heat. Just mixed the spices with the chopped pulled pork and will let sit tonight for the flavors to meld a bit. Then mix cheeses and such tomorrow and smoke on the kettle or in smoker.

    So far:

    1lb. pulled pork
    1/4t. garlic powder
    1/2t. red pepper flakes
    1t. red annahiem pepper powder (I grew,dried, and ground this year) I was out of paprika
    1/2t. black pepper
    1t. whole fennel seed
    1t. salt
    1/3t. sugar

    Have to say this tastes awesome right now. Will continue tomorrow when the meat and spices have set.

    Sounds pretty good. Been a while since we had some.


      Wow, that sounds incredible. I love poppers.


        Yum, gardenfish . Photos, if/when you have them, pretty please?




          Ok Poppers made. I added 1lb. of cream cheese, extra sharp cheddar, 3 pieces of chopped bacon and the italian sausage flavored pulled pork mixed up and it did not really need anything else. I scraped 3 halves really well for Linda and just seeded the other 5 halves for me. Stuffed the peppers and sprinkled mine with chipolte powder and then covered all with extra sharp cheddar. They are in the fridge now I will cook a couple later when I fire up for the Huli-Huli.

          Here they are

          And there was filling left over and it turns out just enough to make a grilled cheese popper stuffing with extra bacon sandwich. It was great with a cold beer

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
