I saw this recipe on The Great American Spice Co. page on face book. It sounded real good so I gave it a try. It was so good that I made them again the next weekend. Here is a good hint for you. Hold back your friends when you remove the lid from the smoker when they are done and make sure you get what you want first. Or they will be gone before you know it!

I needed a recipe to try out my newly seasoned smoker. I followed your recipe but substituted fried bacon for the pepperoni. They turned out marvelous. Thank you for posting this.
