Smoked Armadillo Eggs

Smoked Armadillo Eggs are awesome!  Ground elk sausage was used for our meat and we put them on the grill.

Smoked Armadillo Eggs

1 pound sausage meat (mild, spicy, breakfast, honey garlic, etc.) or hamburger meat
5 jalapeño peppers
½ brick cream cheese (4 oz)
¾ cup grated cheddar cheese

Start up smoker and get it up to 250F.

Cut the top off the jalapeño pepper.  Core the pepper to remove the seeds and membrane.

Mix together the cream cheese and grated cheddar.  (We also added RAKS Seasoning to the mixture)

Fill the cored peppers with the filling.

Take some of the sausage meat and wrap it around the pepper.  Make sure none of the pepper is visible.  Roll it so that it is in the shape of an egg.

Place the armadillo eggs on a smoker rack and place in the smoker.  Smoke for about 2 hours.  You want the temperature of the sausage meat to be 160F.  Also if you notice cheese starting to bubble out of the eggs, it is likely done.


Grill Method - Setup grill for indirect heat and bring up to 325F.  Place armadillo eggs on the indirect side and cook for about 30-45 minutes.
Oven Method - 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes.  Cook until the meat is done.
