I'm smoking some bacon wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese on the BGE. Has anyone ever done this? I figured I'd cook them like an ABT: 225 for 2 hours, but I'd love some advice. Thanks in advance and a Happy 4th to all

I'm sorry but no advice here and I'm way late to the party, but how'd they turn out? My first thought would be that once the bacon was cooked they'd be ready to eat.

How did it turn out? Brad is right, once the bacon is done, you're good to go.

I've done the bacon wrapped dates several times, and they're always a hit. You can also experiment with a glaze. I've tried honey, but it was a little too sweet for my tastes. I really like reducing balsamic vinegar, then drizzling it on during the last 5 minutes or so.

Hope this helps the next time.

I've never done them stuffed with cheese, but I've done them stuffed with chorizo loads of times. Let us know how the cheese stuffing turned out. They work great with any sausage stuffing.

I tried to wrap a date in bacon once but all that happened was that I got slapped and called a pervert. :wink: :twisted: :lol:

And once again I've got coffee coming out of my nose. I really have to watch out for these posts on my breaks... :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I've never done dates. Know they're in season and plan to pick some up this weekend. Cheese sounds good to stuff and the reduced balsamic sounds perfect to glaze.
