Armadillo Eggs

Armadillo Eggs

Here in Texas we call these Armadillo Eggs. They are so meaty and hearty that we may start calling them Meat Church Eggs! These are a great appetizer or tailgate treat. It works as a snack or is even hearty enough to be the main course for some folks. 

If you follow my love for jalapeño poppers then you know I love to mix our BBQ rub and or chorizo INSIDE the cream cheese.

Smoker prep
Prepare your smoker at a temp of 250 degrees. I like oak, mesquite, hickory or pecan for this cook. In this video I use the Meat Church pellets

Jalapeno prep
Slice the top off of the jalapeños and core them. Keep the pepper intact as we will stuff it next.

Stuffing prep
Allow the cream cheese to soften. Mix cream cheese and Meat Church The Gospel to taste. Fill the jalapeños completely with the filling. 

Armadillo Eggs

Wrap each pepper in the breakfast sausage like an egg. Just enough to cover the pepper completely.

Armadillo Eggs

Wrap each "egg"with 2 pieces of bacon. I prefer to cut 2 small 1" pieces off each bacon strip to place on the end of each egg. Completely cover the entire egg with bacon. Top with more Meat Church Honey Hog.

Armadillo Eggs

Place the Armadillo Eggs in the smoker. Using your Instant Read Thermometer cook the Armadillo Eggs until the internal temp reaches 165 degrees. 

Thermapen Mk4

This will take about 90 minutes at 275. The bacon should crispy and golden brown. 

Glaze with your favorite BBQ sauce the last 10 minutes of the cook.

Remove the Armadillo Eggs from the smoke and cool for  at least 10 minutes. That cream cheese will be hot. Enjoy!
