    Looks great-a question about your armadillo egg stuffing-could you describe the ingredients for the stuffing...when I make them I stuff the seeded jala's with mexican cheese but would like to give your method a go.  In advance, thanks and have a great day.

    Great looking food!  I need wine glasses like that instead of breaking those thin things all the time!

    Marinade Ingredients:
    4 Habanero, Seeded (More or Less to Taste)
    6 - 8 Green Onions
    3 Shallots (or 1/2 an Onion)
    6 Cloves Garlic
    1 1-2” Chunk Ginger
    1 Tsp Cinnamon
    1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
    2 Tsp Sea Salt
    1 Tsp Black Pepper
    1 Tbsp Dried Thyme
    1 Tbsp Allspice
    1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
    1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
    1/4 Cup Olive Oil
    1/4 Cup Lime Juice (1 Lime)
    1 Tsp Molasses
    2 Tbsp Bourbon or Rum

    Put all the marinade ingredients into a blender and blended until it looks like a really thick smoothie or paste.

    These were almost too spicy, I would cut back to 1 habanero next time and then work up to the right heat level.

    This is something new I just tried for the stuffing:
    4 Jalapeno’s, Diced
    2 Cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
    Cream Cheese, Just enough to be able to make little balls and have them hold together.

    Then  froze the stuffing balls overnight to make sure they were frozen solid.

    Then I wrapped the balls with about 1/3 of a Italian sausage. And on to the BGE.

    Freezing the cheese ball first made it much easier to wrap them in the sausage and it helped to keep the cheese from oozing out while cooking.

    Thanks for the info-will definitely give it a try.  Hope they turn out as well as yours.

    Smoker, I can't wait to try the eggs! Freezing the cheese first, huh? I wouldn't have thought of that. Thanks for sharing the tip.

    The eggs are realy good, I keep a bucket of the cheese balls in the freezer so any time I fire up the BGE it just takes a minute to wrap a few in the sausage and throw them on with what ever else is cooking.

    Great idea on freezing the stuffing first. I'll have to try that next time. Thanks for sharing it.
