Ribeyes & Pigshots

Sunday afternoon cook. 2'' thick cut ribeyes were on sale at local butcher and could not pass them up. Decided to make some pigshots for my friend who had never tried them.

Cooked steaks indirect at 300(dome temp) until internal temp was about 110. Let rest while egg was getting up to about 750 or so. Seared for 90 seconds a side at stock grid height. Next time I'm only going about 60 seconds per side as they were more medium and i would rather have MR. I have cooked a lot of steaks on my egg but for some reason these were by far the best!

Pigshots speak for themselves!! There were some other sides but who cares about them!!  All in all a great cook and if I could only have one last meal....I think this would be it!

    Nice looking steaks. I love pigshot. I use a local sauage in mine. We like a little heat in ours.

    Take sausage(like kielbasa), thick bacon, cream cheese, brown sugar, fav rub

    Cut sausage link to 1/2 inch thick, wrap with bacon, making a "shot glass"

    fill cup halfway with softened cream cheese

    fill the rest of the way with brown sugar and sprinkle rub to preference.

    cook 225-250 for 2 hours.

    I think the pig shot came around last summer. It is very very tasty! Good bit of prep work involved. But we'll worth it!

    Great looking meal!  Steak looks about perfect to me.  Good job on selling another egg.  One of these days BGE is gonna have to start paying us commission! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    They look like the bomb!

  • One thing to remember when making these, Is to not overfill them with the cream cheese(it's hard not to cuz it's oh so good!!). If you fill them to the very top the cream cheese expands and most of your filling falls onto the grid.

    Put the softened cream cheese filling in a Zip Lock bag, cut off one corner and pipe it into the porcine shot glass!

    Pig shots are always a crowd favorite, make them for a party and it becomes a conversation piece.

    When I posted that recipe, Nathan's kielbasa was sold in a 16 oz package. They've since reduced the package to I believe 13 oz so you might need an extra kielbasa to use up your bacon. Or if you use thick bacon (and get fewer slices per package), it would probably work out fine.
