I did not take any pictures of making them then. Today however, I made them and I thought ahead to take pictures of the process. Since I purchased the a-maze-n smoker, I have been cold smoking a few things; one of the things I smoked is cheddar cheese. So this includes smoked cheddar cheese, instead of plain cheddar.
If you have not attempted the sausage I made I suggest you give it a try. I have made about 100lbs of it, and I often freeze 1lb bags of sausage to use in other things. That is what I used today. So without further delay, here is "The Magnificent".
Here is the sausage frying up, just mix it up until it's done.
This is shredded smoked cheddar, I'd say about a pound, also there is the cream cheese.
This is the cheddar and cream cheese combined.
Sorry, I don't have a picture of mixing the sausage into the cheese, but do that next. :)
Here is the pepper with the cheese/sausage mixture placed on the pepper.
This is a half slice of bacon wrapped around the pepper, and that is all there is to it.
Here they are ready to go into the smoker; 80 of them, and 6 for a friend who does not eat pork with no bacon or sausage.
Here they are in the smoker, in about 3 hours these babies are going to be good to go!
I used hickory wood, and got the smoker just hot enough to produce smoke. Give it a shot, they are easy to make and they will be the star of the show!! Just in time for those Super-bowl parties!!
