    OK so my team didn't win, but the game was good and the food was great!

    Did some prep on Saturday to make it easier on Sunday:
    • Smoked 10 lbs. wings at 250°, just smoked them naked. Then tossed half of them with Yoshida's Teriyaki sauce and the other half with Frank's Red Hot, then put them in ziplock bags in the fridge.

    • While the wings were smoking I smoked 3 racks of ribs for 5 hrs., then wrapped them in foil and put them in the fridge overnight.

    Game day! Put the ribs in a 250° oven for two hours to re-heat. Then made up some stuffed bacon wrapped mushrooms. Mixed up cream cheese, blue cheese, Frank's Hot Sauce, and some BBQ rub. Then spooned it into some mushrooms and a few jalapenos I had sitting around. And wrapped it all in BACON! [​IMG]

    Tossed the shrooms into the smoker, and while that was going on I fired up the Weber Kettle and tossed the wings on to re-heat and char a bit. Then the teriyaki rings got hit with a sauce of melted butter, Yoshida's, chopped fresh garlic, and sweet chili sauce. The Buffalo wings got the standard butter and Franks Hot Sauce treatment. Not a great picture of the wings but there they are. [​IMG]

    After the wings come off the grill I took the ribs out of the oven, sauced them, and tossed them on the hot grill for a little crust.

    Not great shot of the shrooms, the bacon contracted quite a bit and squoze them down, but they were very tasty. Two hours in a 275° smoker.

    All served with various chips, dips, some taquitos for the kids, brownies, beer, soda..... a good day! [​IMG]

    Thanks..... still full from all that food! lol
    Shrooms were a hit, think my daughter about turned into a mushroom from eating so many. All things considered at least it was a good game, and that almost dropped the ball catch Seattle had at the end was amazing.
    Thanks - everybody had a good time, so all things considered still a good day! [​IMG]

    The mushrooms are really easy. This recipe makes a dozen:

    1 dozen medium to large mushrooms

    1 pack cream cheese

    1-1.5 Cups of cheese (sharp chedder, blue, etc.)

    2-3 Tbsp. of whatever seasonings you like (I use my BBQ rub)

    1 lb. bacon regular sliced works better than thick sliced.

    Stem mushrooms and scrape gills out. A grapefruit spoon works well for scraping gills, if not a regular spoon works as well.

    Soften cream cheese and mix in cheese and seasoning(s)

    Use back of a spoon to smoosh cream cheese mix into each mushroom. Don't press to hard or the shrooms will break.

    Wrap each mushroom in one piece of bacon.

    Smoke for 1.5-2 hrs. at 250°


    For the batch above I was inspired by Buffalo Wings. So they had blue cheese, Franks Hot Sauce, and a little bit of my BBQ rub.
