Smoked Sausage Texas Twinkies Ingredients
7-10 Jalapeños, halved and de-seeded
1/2 lb No Sugar Italian Sausage
1 lb No Sugar Bacon
No sugar BBQ sauce (opt)
Black Pepper (opt)
How to Make Smoked Sausage Texas Twinkies
Preheat smoker to 225
Rinse and dry jalapeños, cut in half (I like to leave the stem on, I think it look nice and it gives you a little handle for easier eating!), and deseed with a paring knife or small teaspoon.
Fill each jalapeño with about a tablespoon of sausage and tightly wrap with a slice of bacon. Place on smoker and smoke for about an hour, if you like the bacon more crisp raise the temp to 350 for the last 5-10 minutes. Baste with BBQ sauce if you like or serve it along side for dipping!
What to Serve with Smoked Sausage Texas Twinkies
I love to pair these Texas Twinkies with my Bacon Potato Salad or my Grilled Corn on the Cob. Another version of Texas Twinkies that I like to make are Smoked Chicken Texas Twinkies. The recipe is very similar and pairs well with any BBQ sauce.
