Sweet Heat Pig Shots
Pork / Appetizer
1 pack of cream cheese
Lane's Sweet Heat Rub
2 tablespoons of minced onions (fresh or dried)
1 pack of thick-cut bacon (12-16oz)
1 package of smoked sausage (choose your favorite smoked sausage, if uncooked, you’ll want to cook it first BEFORE starting this recipe)
Set your grill/pit temperature between 350-400 degrees F.
Set the cream cheese out at room temperature for 15-30 minutes prior to starting your grill. Mix cream cheese with Sweet Heat Rub and minced onion.
Slice sausage into 1/2-inch medallions.
Cut bacon strips in half, then wrap one slice of bacon around each sausage, creating a “shot glass” bowl. Then secure with a toothpick.
Fill each “shot” with the cream cheese mixture. Then shake a layer of Sweet Heat on top of all of the pig shots. Place the “shots” on a cooking sheet pan.
Place the pan of pig shots on the grill and cook until the bacon is crispy and golden brown, about 45 to 60 minutes (depending on grill temp).
Remove the pan of pig shots from the grill and cool for 10 minutes.
