Smoked Pig Shots

I'm definitely hog wild for bacon. Pig shots are one of those recipes that when you hear about it, you think it's a little bit crazy.

  • 1 lb thick sliced bacon 8 slices
  • 2 sausages sliced into 16 pieces
  • 1 tbsp sweet bbq rub if the rub has a high ratio of salt, reduce this to 1 tbsp
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese shredded


  • Slice the bacon in half, and then wrap each sausage with the bacon, forming a bowl on top of the sausage. Use a toothpick, or a skewer to hold the bacon in place.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, and then using a small cookie scoop, scoop some of the cheese filling into each of the bacon shot glasses.
  • Place the pig shots on a grill rack, over a foil lined baking sheet into your smoker. Let them smoke at 150 degrees for a half hour, and then adjust the temperature to 400 degrees. Let the bacon shots cook until the bacon is crispy and the tops are slightly browned.
