B-Day LONEY EGGsplosion!

As some of you may know last Friday was my birthday. Thank all of you for your cards and letter.



Our friend "Avocado Joe" ,my mango connection, took me out for a few
early adult beverages and as the day progressed I mentioned that I had
seen a mac & cheese fatty on another forum.



Well we got to enjoying the day and he challenged me to make a "LONEY" Mac & Cheese Fatty. So here it is.



I dedicate this cook to our missing friend "HOSS". When last heard
from a few weeks ago he was planting lots of veggies and building a few
houses. See you after the crop is picked.





Took a 4# chub and sliced half length wise, like a jelly roll, the piece was 22 inches long and weighed 5 1/2 lbs when stuffed:

Layered the inside with some mac & cheese that had sausage and onions, then layered some cheddar and garlic chives:



image



Rolled that monster in a bacon weave, sprinkled with a pork rub and some maple sugar:



image



Cooked on Large BGE indirect 400F about 1 1/2 hours until internal was 160F, some pecan wood:

Served:

Now since I still had the inner half of the chub, What should I do?:



image



LONEY Fries came to mind for 2 of the sections, did them on small
egg in cast iron pan with some BBQ sauce for 45 minutes, stirring every
10 minutes or so:

The fries picked a nice carmalization that I thought I should have some LONEY ABT's:



image



And a Blooming LONEY Onion was made with the other piece.Have done a
few onions over the years and egged in foil with butter seasoning:



image



Little BBQ sauce:

325F indirect for about 45 minutes:

If you made it this far, Thanks for looking!

    Nice job and nice photography, but that seems kind of gross to me.

    I doubt this will be topped. Lots of techniques. Not my thing, but can certainly appreciate your work.

    Can someone explain to me what is so nasty about this? I dont get it. Sorry for the ignorance, but bacon and mac and cheese sound good.

    What's a chub? A bologna log?

    If it is, I am no longer asking what is nasty.

    I find bologna/baloney gross.

    Loney is boloney/bologna. I had to search that one a while back to figure it out myself.

    Not trying to sound like "po folk", but when you've grown up with bologna and old mutton, the thought of them makes you gag.  I'll never eat either one of them again.  Grilled Spam was OK, but I haven't had that since either.

    Mac n cheese, wrapped in bologna, wrappen in bacon, served with a side of fried bologne and bologne stuffed jalapeno's.  
    I'm afraid to ask what kind of beverage you enjoyed with this.

    forgot to add, the mac n cheese looks great.  Just have to keep the pictures away from my 13yr old or it will become a standard on his request list (minus the chives)

    Everclear or moonshine pairing is usually recommended with this dish.
