Avocado! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? !
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Avocado and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!!
2 Avocados, Medium Sized
1 package of Bacon
18 oz of Chorizo
4 oz of cheese of choice
InstructionsSplit the avocado and remove the pit, then carefully remove the skin and fill the hole where the pit was with a cheese of your choice and close the avocado back up. Lay out some chorizo flat on a clean surface and roll the avocado in it so the entire avocado is covered and then wrap that in bacon! Now be very careful when you place this on the grill as it will want to come apart, the fats from the Chorizo and the Bacon will not adhere well to the outside of the Avocado so the bacon wrap must be tight to keep everything in place. Grill at 375 for about 30 minutes or until Chorizo and Bacon have reached desired level of doneness! Take off and slice and serve hot!
So, Will it BBQ?
We went a little “mad scientist” on this one and tossed everything but the kitchen sink at it. It was noted when we were done that since Avocados are already high in fat this was a fat (the cheese) inside of a fat (the avocado) wrapped in fat (Chorizo is high in fat) wrapped in fat (Bacon is obviously fatty) but even for the hell this probably put our arteries through it was well worth it as this was incredibly savory! This will most certainly BBQ, it was an incredibly tasty creation that was as fun to eat as it was to make!

@Jonathon Was there another thread or topic that addressed glycerine and using a vacuum tumbler?
@doug7777 142 degrees is a stalling point where the fat starts to render. I used to get very impatient and start cranking up the heat to get the INT to go up. That usually results in burning all the fat out of the snack sticks. Be patient. The temp will eventually start to rise again. Once it does, it will continue to do so at a steady pace. I have had snack sticks in the smoker for 24 hours or better due to having 25lbs hanging at one time. I have also had 4-5 lbs at a time in the smoker only take 4-5 hours total.
@DeerSlayer i guess i never replied to this thread even though i was mentioned! Sorry about that!
Glad things are turning out great! Just an FYI you could probably just stuff right away into casings, it will make it much eaiser for you then after 6 hours then resting again! Also im a huge supporter of sodium erthorbate as an accelerator. It will make your snack sticks look better and last longer!
