  • Bacon
  • cheddar cheese shredded
  • jalapeños
  •  Kielbasa sausage


  • The Classic PIG SHOTS
  • Setup your smoker to 350°F.
  • Cut the Kielbasa into 3/4 inch pieces. Cut your bacon in half lengthways. Wrap your cut bacon around the Kielbasa so it forms a shot glass. Take a toothpick and skewer at the bottom, securing the bacon around the sausage.
  • Take the softened cream cheese, cheddar, chopped jalapeños and the bbq rub and mix together in a bowl until well combine.
  • Place the mixture into a piping bag or a sandwich bag (snip the corner off), and pipe the mixture into the pig shot until it is just below the top of the bacon. Top with 1/4 slice jalapeño
  • Place the shots onto your smoker for about 1 hour and until the bacon is slightly browned and the cheese filling is puffed and golden.
  • At that point start to baste with your favorite BBQ sauce, honey!
  • After 15 more minutes bump the temp up to 450f to really brown that bacon.
  • Rest and enjoy!
