Smoked figs ?

I'm looking for something different for an appetizer next week, and picked up some fresh figs at the farmers' market today... Has anyone tried smoking figs? I did find a recipe on the web where they cut the figs in half, put them in a pan, cut side up, drizzled with molasses and a fruit juice. Smoked at 200 for 5 hours or so... turning the figs for the last hour. Sounds interesting... Any thoughts?

    Try these. They were unbelievable! Feta or Blue cheese stuffed figs wrapped in canadian bacon/buckboard bacon.

    I used this to wrap them.

  • They look great, but I gotta keep it vegetarian. I'm serving 17, 3 of which are vegetarians.. I'm cooking separate mains and soups, but wanted to keep at least one course "simple." I'm thinking about a piece of grilled homemade baguette, topped with chevre, some figs maybe drizzled with some honey. Just not sure about these smoked figs... Gonna have to test them tomorrow ;)

    Throw on some "bacon salt"! No meat!

    No prob. Cut an X in the top, place a chunk of either bleu cheese or feta into the X. Wrap in proscutto or canadian bacon or... Cook at 350F indirect until the meat starts to crisp. Take a large sword, and bravely fight everyone else off.
