    Bear and Westby inspired me for a get together menu. But, I didn't have Westby's Andouille so I used chorizo with diced scallions or Bears pie stuffing so I used fresh peeled/sliced apples with raisins, cinnamon and brown sugar. My end results weren't as pretty. I also did my favorite wing recipe and an ABT interpretation. Food went over well! Thanks for inspiration everyone!
    Out of order, but I like to crisp after low and slow.
    Cut 9 pound pork loin in half.
    Chorizo on one half Apple and raisen on other.
    Prosciutto topping for Apple and some bacon around chorizo.
    Towards the end of five hours in MES with the entire menu going. I used pecan wood.
    Poppers first off. A while ago I started cooking bacon first then dicing and mixing with cream cheese and shredded cheddar to stuff in the peppers. I like the look of wrapping in bacon, but hate having the bacon wrap fall apart in first bite. This way has same taste, but easier to enjoy.
    Two completely different tastes, but both were delicious. Apple is more of a summer diner and chorizo for winter.
    Thank you for taking the time to look.

    The chorizo stuffed loin goes great with over easy egg for leftover breakfast!

    Thank you Sir. It's easier to eat them with the bacon in. I don't think it looks as cool, but it eliminates the first bite being all bacon when it unravels and the next bites having no bacon.
