This is a fan favorite - a really easy recipe that is the perfect appetizer for any type of party.
Just a couple ingredients to make you the superstar!
- Blue Cheese Crumbles
- Dates (I used pre-pitted dates - it saves a few steps)
If you can't find pre-pitted dates you can remove the pits by slicing the date lengthwise.
Open up the date and jam in a teaspoon or so of blue cheese crumbles.
Place a small slice of mozzarella on top of the blue cheese crumbles.
Last step is to wrap a 1/2 piece of bacon around the date. If you stretch the bacon as you are wrapping - the bacon will stick to itself as it contracts. No need for tooth picks to keep the bacon in place.
I smoked these tasty treats on my Royall 3000 over apple pellets at 225F for about 90 minutes. I smoked the snacks on Frogmats so they didn't fall through the grates. These are a must have for any serious BBQ'r.

After about 90 minutes these tasty snacks were ready to be served.
A perfect party snack platter is not complete without Smoked Summer Sausage, Atomic Buffalo Turds, and - of course - Smoked Stuffed Dates!
