    I made these last evening to bring to a friends house.  I stuffed it with brie,brown sugar and slivered almonds and topped off with bacon crumbles!  Wow, they were good
    Sounds good! Nice ingredients.

    Tried this tonight. I used bratwurst which is what I had in the fridge, but might work better with a firmer sausage. It was tough to get them formed and standing up correctly to make the "shot glass". 

    Also, thicker bacon would have helped as someone else said. 

    Tasted amazing, though. 

    As a cardiologist, I can't say I recommend these as part of a heart healthy diet, that's for sure.

    Sorry, i know the rule about it did not happen if you don't have pictures.....We were running late and i forgot to pull out the camera!  I think it was the first time in history i made us late, but it was all for a good cause!

  • I made these last night for some friends. Amazing recipe. Thanks for sharing! We added King's Hawaiian Sweet rolls to the mix. These pig shots on a roll with some Stone Ground Horseradish Mustard? Oh yeah!

    Yeah, a little in moderation is probably a good idea!

    The next time i make them, i think in with the brie, brown sugar and bacon, i may add a little bit of apple as well.

    Looks great and I will definitely try these.  My cardiologist is going to be a rich man.

    I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.

    Kick it up a notch and put a nice round slice of Jalapeno on top.  Now, that is something I will try this weekend.  Thanks for the idea.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    I made a batch and took to my local dealers demo a month ago. They went over real big. I think it helped sell a few.

    I see many of the recipes for Pig Shots calling for the use of what looks like a pretty hefty dose of brown sugar on the top. From a culinary viewpoint, what is the purpose of the brown sugar? 

    To me, a light sprinkle of a rub (some of which may contain a small amount of brown sugar) is all that is needed.

    Just asking....

    This is the first i have seen this delightful recipe.  I know that smoking bacon and brown sugar together is a wonderful combo.  (Pig Candy)  That's the first thing that comes to mind.  Try it on a few - vs- no sugar.  Just another option I guess.

    Has anyone tried tho with a Cajun sausage? Curious if the spice from the sausage interferes with the intended taste of the shot.
  • R2Egg2QR2Egg2Q Posts: 1,599
    I'd say give the Cajun sausage a shot & let us know how they come out! There are no rules on Pig Shots other than making a bacon "shot glass". Fill it however you like and adjust as necessary to suit your taste preferences.

    Last night, I used smoked sausage and Kennedy bacon. Filled with cream cheese and a five green chili salsa. Topped it with dizzy dust. Used hickory chunks. SWMBO loved them. Thank goodness they were spicy as hell, otherwise we would have eaten them all.

    Just found this. Can't wait to make these for all of the fiances extended family.

    How many do you think I can fit on a Med BGE at once?
  • R2Egg2QR2Egg2Q Posts: 1,599
    I fit 25 on my Small grid but a few were partially direct heat. I'd think you should be able fit 30 indirect.

    Ended up being able to place 40 of these on my Medium and they were a big hit even though I think I could have cooked them a little longer and used less cream cheese.

    Did about 50 of these for my tennis team Saturday and they were a huge hit.

    This is what makes them to me.  Just a nice sweet little punch to go with all the salt of the bacon and sausage.  To each is own but I love that touch.  Most of my family agree that it's the 'icing on the cake'......

    I agree, I am not much for sweets but the brown sugar gives it at little extra. I get a lot of comments on the brown sugar it blends nicely with the others as Corey24 states.
