Hi, I wanted to try soemthing different for tonights fireworks. I've been wanting to try Armadillo eggs. I have Jalepenos, cream chese and jimmy dean sausage. I beleive those are the main ingredients. If someone could give me some ideas on cooking times, indirect/direct, etc it would be extremely helpful. Thanks and looking forward to the replies. And Happy New Year to all.

    There are no 'main' ingredients as you can add whatever your imagination thinks is good, as for cooks, I do them like fatties, indirect around 350 to an internal temp around the way, mix some minced garlic in that cream cheese and if you have it, another good add is some ham, especially prociutto, green peppers, red peppers, onions, whatever you would like..good luck!
  • Thanks for the cooking times. Cutting up some shallots and garlic as I type. Thanks again and have a safe and Happy New year.

    If you put some yellow food coloring into the cream cheese it looks like egg yolk.
    Happy Trails

    Barbecue is not rocket surgery
