Armadillo Eggs 

An interesting BBQ dish.  They look and taste really nice.  It's basically cheese stuffed jalapeños rolled inside an egg shaped meatball.  Traditionally pork sausage meat is used,  

Cut the stem end of the jalapeños, take out the seeds with a small knife and stuff them with cheddar cheese.  seasoned my meat with chopped onions and garlic, black pepper, salt, ground cumin, cayenne pepper and a good dash of Worcestershire sauce.  Make a round patty of the meat, place your stuffed jalapeño in the middle and wrap the meat patty all around it.  Roll the meatball in your hands in to egg shape. You could grill them in indirect heat or even make them in the oven, but I love the smoked flavour so I smoked them for nearly 2 hours with cherry and apple tree in my Weber kettle. I sprinkled my basic rub on the eggs just before putting them in to the grill for adding a nice and tasty crust. Viva Terlingua Scorpion hot sauce or good ole' Site 300 compliments this side dish!

Easy Ribs The 3 steps for the 6 hours that you initially smoke the ribs with nothing but your favorite rub on them and your favorite hardwood chunks such as oak, mesquite , hickory or apple, whichever you like.

After the 4 hours you remove the ribs and quickly double wrap them in heavy duty foil just before you seal them off, splash on some brown sugar and butter for good measure and close the foil leaving some room around the ribs for the steam to be able to flow around the meat and do it's magic.

The ribs cook in the smoker wrapped for 1 hour undisturbed. After 1 hour remove the ribs from the smoker, unwrap and place back into the smoker for the final 1 hour. Add more wood if needed or smoking chips into your fire nest. You can brush on a liberal amount of Terlingua barbecue sauce to glaze at this point if you wish. Those who use this smoked rib recipe say the meat will literally fall off the bone and be extremely juicy, tender and flavorful.  know to smoke the ribs at around 220 degrees.
