    I haven't got near the BBQ all week and am jonesing to smoke something. I was at work this morning so only had the afternoon to prep and cook something, and with rain looking imminent, it had to be something quick. I'd seen posts on various forums about bacon wrapped scotch eggs and I thought I'd give that a try. So I popped into the butchers on the way home from work and bought some sausage meat and streaky bacon. I boiled a couple of eggs for 5 mins and dunked them in iced water. Then I peeled them and wrapped them in the sausage meat (mixed with a pinch of memphis dust) and then wrapped again in bacon.

    I then got the barbecue good and hot and cooked the eggs indirect for 15 minutes with some mesquite

    After 15 minutes I brushed them with some barbecue sauce and put them back in for another 5 minutes. I took them off, gave them a couple of minutes to rest and voila:

    The bigger egg was slightly underdone, but the smaller one was spot on and tasted great; plenty of smoke flavour as well. Anyone else got any good ideas ideas on quick smokes for time strapped commuters?

    I'm always disappointed with Scotch eggs, there's never any whisky in the ones I've tried.
