As you know, Judy and I are avid fans of the Big Green Egg ceramic smoker and grill. We are also among a continuously growing number of Eggheads (the name we BGE owners call ourselves) around the world.
We Eggheads like to gather from time to time at Eggfests around the country where we can enjoy meeting our fellow Eggheads and people who are interested in learning more about the Big Green Egg.
At these Eggfests, a number of us cook and serve samples of various foods, mostly bite-size morsels, that will give the Taster an opportunity to not only taste something cooked on the Egg, but also talk to the Cooks about the food and any other questions they may have about the Egg. It's a lot of fun for everyone, especially us Cooks. Judy and I have been to almost 75 Eggfests and Egg related events over the years and will continue to do so as long as we can.
We try to cook and serve something that will be unique and tasty. Other Cooks do the same. We really want the Tasters to go home with a "Wow!" feeling, and perhaps become Eggheads themselves.
One of the more popular items that we cook is what we call Magnum Loads. When I describe it, you will quickly see why we named it Magnum Loads. From a healthy food standpoint, it's a 'killer' and that's probably why everyone likes them.
We start with a 1" section of smoked sausage, bore a hole through it end to end, insert a Little Smokey cocktail sausage, wrap that with a generous handful of pork sausage, and then wrap all of it with bacon. Then cook on the Egg until done and serve. Yes! It it delicious. Here are some photos of them being made and ready to be served.
