Have always seen these on the forum and at Eggfests but have never even had a bite. I used fresh jaleps, Tillamook Cheddar, Owens breakfast sausage and some Rudy's rub.

Ready to go:

Indirect at 350, with a small Hickory chunk:

Just under 30 minutes later, off to rest for few:

    Brad, those look really tasty, just curious why they are called Armadillo eggs?

    It is Texas response to Scotch Eggs, but instead of having a hard boiled egg inside there is a cheese filled jalapeno.

    Here is the ingredients for Scotch Eggs
    hard boiled eggs
    pounds pork sausage
    dried bread crumbs
    flour
    eggs, beaten
    Scotch eggs are fried, not baked and they are mighty tasty.

    All that matters is that it's not IN hunting season....I can probably make that. My parents both live up that way... a good excuse for a visit!

    I don't see a banner for it in Eggfest Central...do you have a link?

    THANKS!!

    They are quite rich but a nice treat, especially if the japs are hot.
