Tonight I smoked and then grilled sausage stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. Incredible!
I used dates, thick cut bacon, and merguez beef sausage (any spicy sausage will do, chorizo would be perfect, and even hamburger with loads of paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, etc. would do the same thing).
I sliced the dates down the middle and removed the pit, I stuffed a small amout of sausage (a couple teaspoons) in to fill it, then wrapped once in bacon and stuck a toothpick in to keep the bacon in place.
I smoked them over the hottest part of the smoker for about 15 minutes (around 300-350) and then grilled them in the friebox for five minutes turning them frequently.
I can't even begin to describe how incredible they tasted. Enjoy with the beverage of your choice
