Whole jalapeno peppers
Eagle Rub All Purpose Seasoning
This is my favorite appetizer! Wash the jalapeno peppers. Cut off the stems. Cut them in half, the length of the pepper so you have two open pieces. Clean out all of the seeds. Fill each half with about a teaspoon of cream cheese. Place a little smokie in the cheese and press it down slightly. Wrap the pepper with a half slice of bacon. Hold it all together with a toothpick. Sprinkle the whole pepper with Eagle Rub. Grill the peppers over direct medium heat (300 degrees) until the bacon starts to get crispy. You will have to turn the peppers several times to avoid burning them. Enjoy!

These meatballs are super easy to make and contain no weird ingredients or preservatives. Look at the ingredient list on frozen meatballs at the store, scary! Combine all of these ingredients together very well in a large bowl. Now make the meatballs to your desired size. I make somewhat large ones, about 2oz each. Place the meatballs in a baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 400 degrees. For smaller meatballs it will take 15 to 20 minutes. I usually double this recipe and freeze some for quick dinners.
3 to 5lbs of thin sliced meat
20 ounces of soy sauce or teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup firm packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Eagle Rub All Purpose Seasoning
This is my basic jerky recipe that is really pretty mild. My kids love it and so do the adults. I use beef, deer, elk or whatever else my hunting buddies bring me to make jerky out of! Whatever kind of meat you choose you want to make sure it is as lean as possible. Jerky is already tough and chewy but a fatty cut of meat will leave you chewing for hours. As far as beef goes, a nice chuck tender or round roast will be the best. Just pick the leanest one out of the meat counter. Before slicing I place the meat in the freezer for about 30 to 45 minutes. This makes it so much easier to slice. While your meat is in the freezer, mix up in a large bowl the soy or teriyaki sauce, Eagle Rub All Purpose Seasoning, and brown sugar. If you want to make your jerky more hot, add in a little cayenne pepper to suit your taste. Take your meat out and slice it up. I slice mine about 1/8 inch thick. Toss the slices into the marinade as you go along. I now place the meat and marinade into a 1 or 2 gallon Ziplock bag. You can leave it in the bowl and cover it, however you choose. Now place it in the refrigerator and let it marinate for 24 hours. Mix it up after about 12 hours if you remember. Set up your smoker for an indirect cook. I set it up for around 180 to 200 degrees with indirect heat. Right before putting the jerky on the grids I like to add a couple chunks of pecan, hickory, oak, mesquite, or apple wood for that nice smoky flavor. Right when you put the meat on the grids it is also a good time to sprinkle it with some coarse ground black pepper if you want a more spicy jerky. It also makes it look cool! Whatever way you use to dehydrate the meat it should take anywhere between 6 to 8 hours at this temperature. I like my jerky chewy and not breaking apart done. Just keep an eye on it and take it off when it is done for you. Enjoy!
