Wow, what a great time! It was really nice to see everyone, some new and old faces. Yes, it's true we got spanked on the golf course. That's OK, we'll have better luck next year. [p]
Highlight of the trip! Mr. Big Green Egg himself! He had great things to say about Oklahoma and our eggers. Phillis (Snoop Dog's Sis) and myself took the chance to take a pic.

DSC01371.jpg[p]Added something new to the party this year. New England Smoked Apples! Many asked about the recipe, here you go.
DSC01399.jpg[p]12 Large Apples (McIntosh are what I used, also tried some Red Rome Apples however they took slightly longer to smoke)
Unsalted Butter
One celery stalk
One small sweet onion
1 tsps of dried Sage. (little goes a long way)
16 once bulk original sausage.
Maple Syrup
Apple Wood Chips or Chunks for smoking.[p]1 Tsp of Butter in Med Hot pan. Finely chop the onion and celery stalk, saute them until slightly brown. Add sausage and sage turn heat up to high; break up sausage while cooking with wooden spoon. Cook mixture until all the sausage is done. Remove from heat, and strain. Let cool to room temp before adding to apples. [p]Core apples with melon baller, make sure not to go out the bottom of the apple, leaving a cavity for sausage stuffing. Fill apples 1/2 way with sausage stuffing, then add small amount of Maple Syrup, fill the rest of the cavity with the stuffing. This can be done several hours before cooking, just cover and put in fridge. [p]Ready to cook; get Egg up to around 350-375, indirect w/ drip pan. Add lots of apple wood for smoke flavor. (I've never tried any other woods with this dish). Right after apples hit the egg, put a dab of butter on them. About 20mins into the cook, add some syrup to the top of the apples. Apples should take about 45mins to 1hr, depending on the size of apples. You want them to be soft, when the skin splits is a good sign they are done. Serve hot, and with lots of Syrup! Yum ;-)[p]Serve as a side dish, or as main course. I'm thinking about on Turkey Day, maybe in the morning with breakfast. [p]Enjoy; see you all next year in Egglanta! And will see some of you in Oklahoma on April 20th and 21st, 2007.

    I want to go on the record. I'm not the one talking smack. Egret has way overstated my golfing skills.[p]I was really glad we had a nice time at the course with the Oklahoma Clan. I never got to your apples. Nick kept pushing those biscuits in front of me. I did get some sausage cheese balls. Those were great.[p]Glad you enjoyed the sauce. I will be taking orders for Oklahoma around the 1st of March. See you in April.[p]Mike

  • locolongball,[p]Looking at that golf pic...they may have beat us on the course...but we would dominate them Sumo Wrestling![p]Snoop
