Picked up some prime tri-tips for the big day. Think I’ll go tacos and a Mexican theme. We have some great guacamole and salsa available around these parts.
Go Bucs!!
What you got going?

I’m doing a variation of the smoked quesso dip that’s made the rounds of the interwebz. I’m adding some brisket to mine I have in the freezer from my last brisket cook.

Bacon-wrapped dates. You can skewer them or stab them with toothpicks before cooking. Cook them when the heat is nice and low. All the fat will cause flame-ups. They are one of the best meal I've ever eaten. Again, be careful of those flame-ups.

Oooo, I’ve done those before. I think I stuffed some of them with goats cheese maybe and balsamic drizzle? I remember them being delicious. Enjoy!

I made mine with feta, but I like the idea of goat cheese. It hits all the right notes. Great party food.

I think I did some feta and some goat. Blue is obviously an option but if doing feta, not different enough to bother. A little brown sugar near the end on the bacon would be nice too.

Rats! Now I’m hungry!🥲

I live in a heavily Hispanic area and there is goat cooked frequently. I’m pretty sure it’s available at a couple great little supermarkets we have in town. My buddies go there and get the chopped beef and their house spice blend for flat top cooking of their tacos. Wonder if they sell the goat in similar fashion for ease of preparation? Look forward to your post.

Chops are phenomenal. I compare well raised goat to rich like lamb but without the tang.

Picked up my Super Bowl brisket today. This will actually be my first SF brisket--a healthy 13.5 lbs. The crowd will be small (thanks, COVID), so even if the whole thing doesn't turn out great, I'm sure there will be enough that does to keep people happy.

Definitely a favorite for our house as well. If you want a bit of a crunch try putting 1 or 2, depending on the size of your dates, blanched Marcona almonds (which are very mild in flavor) in with your stuffing of choice. They compliment Medjool Dates especially well and add a bit more texture. The balsamic glaze jpsBBQ mentioned sounds like it would take thing up a notch or two as well. I am going to try adding that next time for sure.

We finally settled on our Super Bowl eats:

Chicago style Italian Beef sandwiches with Hot Giardiniera (dipped of course) and twice grilled stuffed jalapenos boats. Half of the jalapenos stuffed with a more traditional cream and cotija cheese filling spiced up with a mix of chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and a bit a cayenne, and half with a cream and mozzarella filling infused with homemade hickory BBQ sauce, bacon crumbles, & caramelized balsamic red onion (finely minced).

Hopefully the game is half as good as all the awesome foods being cooked by everyone. If so, it sounds like a fantastic time will be had by all. Cheers!

Alright, so I want in on the bacon wrapped dates madness. How would you guys cook them on the WSF? Guessing if low and slow you would kick it up at the end to crisp the bacon?
