Appetizer ideas for the mini

My fly fishing club is making our annual trip to Louisiana in a April.  There will probably be 12 guys there.  There aren't any restaurants around so We'll probably have to take our dinners.  I'm thinking about lugging my mini down there to cook some appetizers.  I need some apps that cook fairly quickly over direct heat.  I'll need to make them up ahead of time.  Something like marinated meat(satay) on a skewer.  It needs to cook quickly because there isnt much room on the mini.  Any ideas?

    cut up some venison or whatever meat you have wrap it in bacon and cover in bbq sauce of your choice. Put it in a bag until you are ready to cook

    This is an old favorite recipe that is always a hit.  I just made this for a party the other night and I had some left over and threw the already cooked left overs on the egg to reheat and "oh my",  it just got better and will now be my new way to serve it.  I think it fills all your squares.

       1      lb            fillet, sliced thin or sirloin flap steak
       1/2  cup           chopped onion

       2      Tbs           oil
       2      Tbs           low sodium dales sauce
       2      Tbs           dry sherry

    both sound good.  With chestnuts I'd be getting my daily serving of vegetables.

    They old turtle eggs would be quick and easy. I use the pre patty sausage, cheese your choice, jalapeno and rub of choice. Man food. The mix could be made beforehand. Shrimp skewers could be made ahead of time and cook quick. Have fun....I'm jealous.
