    • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

      Not sure where I found them but been doing them for years. We fill the cups with brown sugar and rub mixed together and call them BBQ Crack. Will be trying these new additions soon.

        OMG... these are ridiculous. And so many variations you can do with them... I came looking for some kind of appetizer for tomorrow's sous vide steak extravaganza, and I think I've found it!

        Going to do some with cheddar, maybe some with pepper jack, or maybe cream cheese and top with a jalapeno slice! Since some of my guests aren't into hot stuff, that would be a great way to warn them away from the ones they won't like.

        Oh, man, soooooo many possibilities with this concept. Thanks for posting!

              Ok, so I've decided to do these 2 ways. I think I may try to smoke the shot glasses before filling them, see if I can crisp up the bacon a bit... for both, the sausage slice wrapped in bacon for the "shot glass," as usual.

              1. Toss a chunk of pepper jack inside, topped with a slice of jalapeno, seasoned over the top with Slap Ya Momma seasoning. Maybe even another jalapeno slice on the bottom, too, I haven't decided about that one.

              2. For those who don't care for the heat, I'm gonna do smoky sweet. Filling will be a mix of some leftover smoked pulled pork, chopped fine, some thick BBQ sauce just to help it stick together, a small dollop of dark brown sugar, all topped with a few drops of Elijah Craig bourbon.

              Both will be smoked on the Traeger.

              What do you guys think????

                Let us know how your plan works, tRidiot . I've wanted to do these for a while now but don't like bacon that is not crisply cooked. I had thought to par-cook the bacon before wrapping it around to make the shot but par cooked bacon is really rubbery and doesn't want to assume a shape as easily as raw bacon does.

                I par-cook bacon for ABTs and it works just fine, but that's a different type of bacon wrap.

                  With thick bacon you should still be able to wrap it OK after par-cooking.

                  Agree on the thick bacon. I also think getting the par cooked bacon cold might help.

                  I think the fat from the sausage will preclude at least the lower portion from crisping. I've never had the bottom of the shot crisp.

                Yes, it won't be truly crispy bacon, I know that... however, I've actually considered putting them in the oven on broil for a few minutes to finish them off. Not sure if that would do any good, but I figure it might be worth a shot, and would certainly help caramelize the bourbon and brown sugar, eh?

                      tRidiot Yes!!! Great to see this thread back in the mix. Thanks for recalling it. I love making these and they are always a huge hit. I love to use a HOT cheddar, with cowboy caviar and some cream cheese.

                        The more the merrier!

                        I don't know how it is in your neck of the woods, fzxdoc , but here in VA they keep whatever they may have under the cash register and never tell anyone. One has to know to ask for it.

                        I have to do it in the east. Perhaps it should be in our own zones as we are spread all over, or I can go earlier

                        Any later than 9 and, well, I regret to inform you that I'll be asleep. GEESH

                        Maybe the zone doesn't matter that much. The thought does...done! and I think we should post it here on AR as well...

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

                    the good one grill
                    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.

                    Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                    masterbuilt gas smoker
                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
