They are something I have been meaning to do, just have not yet for some reason. They look good. Kind of a break from the ABT's.

Armadillo Eggs

10 to 12 large fresh jalapenos
1 package cream cheese
1 lb. hot sausage
1 c. Bisquick
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 T. Cavender’s Seasoning

1/2 c. bread crumbs
1 T. Cavender’s Seasoning

Cut the tops off the jalapenos, scoop out the seeds and then stuff with cream cheese. Mix the sausage, Bisquick, Cavender’s and cheddar cheese. Mix the bread crumbs and the 2nd part of the Cavender’s in a bowl. Take a scoop of the sausage and wrap around the stuffed jalapenos, roll in the bread crumb mixture and place on smoker.

Yes sir, I have made them quite a few times. I will try to find some pics of the finished product. I love these things......:1987_food:

After I read your recipe, I realized its different than what I make. I dont use bisqick or any bread crumbs. Just sausage, jalapenos, and cream cheese. I wasn't able to find any pics in my collection. Sorry!

I've done 'em a few times, but so far I haven't been happy with the results. I didn't follow your recipe, though. My eggs have been straight seasoned ground beef around a stuffed pepper, and the whole thing wrapped with bacon and cooked indirect. I've thought about meatloaf mix or sausage, but haven't tried it, yet.

Pics?

I tried that once. Didn't care much for it. I am not just all that much into ground sausage. I did a mixture of ground beef and sausage in mine. Maybe try again with more beef in it.

Rob... I noticed the VersaRack in one of your pics. Have you enlightened these fellers on here about the VersaRack?

I still need to make a trip to Home Depot for some expanded metal for a VersaRack and a charcoal basket.

Mike,
How bout a scrimp in the creamcheese?

Also sounds good rolled in cracker crumbs and deep fried.


Rob,
Enlighten us please.

Rob,
Enlighten us please.

OK, ok. I'm working on patenting this thing and making a production model, but this is the original idea.

First, find a piece of expanded metal. I used a 12x24 inch piece from Home Depot.

Find the midpoint and cut into 2 pieces.

Bend each piece into a “U” shape. You wind up with 2 racks, each about 4x4 inches. Make each rack slightly larger at the top and they can nest together.

Next, wash each rack to remove any factory coatings or junk on them. I also scrubbed a few rust spots away. Throw them on the grill to dry and burn off any remaining factory coatings. Coat with a thin layer of oil while still hot (protect your hands with hot pads or gloves). The dark areas are places where the metal overheated.

To use this, just use skewers or metal rods (I used bamboo skewers) to span the open areas. You can vary spaces depending on what you’re cooking, and you can even use skewers between the racks.

To break this rack in, I made ABTs and armadillo eggs. I used individual skewers for 3 ABTs, and placed an egg on the rack itself, with another egg supported by skewers.

Ingenuity in action! :lightbulb: :thumbs up:

Watch the edges of that expanded metal after you cut it, it can have some REALLY sharp points that will go to the bone.

That looks like the Sandman's versa rack to me Jake. You may have to race him to the patent office for that.
