Pork Shots


Pineapple definitely doesn't belong on pizza, but it is hard to deny that it goes super well in this recipe!

Crispy bacon, smoky sausage, cream cheese and crushed pineapple make this little starter a real crowd favorite.

Try adding your own variations to this one. Add some candied jalapenos to the mixture or glaze the bacon with your favorite barbecue sauce to make this dish your own.

What you will need

  • 3 spicy sausages-Andouille is a great choice
  • 10 strips of streaky bacon
  • 8 Oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup crushed pineapple (Strained)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Rub- Recipe HERE
  • Wooden BBQ skewers


1. Slice sausages into 1/2 inch pieces and cut bacon strips in half, width ways.

2. Liberally sprinkle both sides of the bacon strips with all purpose rub.

3. In a medium sized bowl, mix cream cheese, cayenne pepper and crushed pineapple together until well incorporated. Set aside.

4. Taking your half strip of bacon, wrap it around a sausage round, to form a shot glass like shape.

5. Skewer each pork shot with a water soaked wooden skewer, being sure to run the skewer through the sausage slice and using it to secure the bacon strip in place.

6. Place pork shots onto a 225F-250F preheated smoker for about 30 minutes. Once bacon has begun to brown, fill each pork shot with the cream cheese mixture.

7. Smoke until the pork is crispy and the sausages have cooked all the way through-approximately 30-45 minutes.

8. Serve as a starter or even as a tasty side.

Smoked Honey Duck

Duck has to be one of my favorite meats and when smoked, it’s even better! Duck has a much gamier flavor than chicken and is a lot more similar to red meat than white (you can even eat it medium rare!) This recipe is full of flavor, with the sweetness of the honey, the contrasting saltiness and deep umami that comes from the Soy Sauce.
