Surprise Packages and the recipe...Hey Old Smoke loves ya.....
« Reply #-1 on: October 05, 2013, 08:02:31 PM »
Now this is an old school cook. The recipe is from a old Weber pamphlet from 1972




cut a pork tenderloin into 1.5 inch chunks. The recipe called for salt and pepper and MSG. Well I am all out of MSG, so I used some Garys Sweet for Mama rub


added a sliced mater


added a slice of white onion


added a hunk of bell pepper


criss crossed some thick sliced bacon


Wrapped em up and put a toothpick in the middle and you got your surprise packages


set the kettle up for the classic indirect set-up


Here we go for a retro ride


I never thought I would use the little timer that came with the Performer but it sure came in handy today. At the 40 minute mark I added some cheese and in 5 minutes they were done...uh make that 45 minutes and one second



Ooooh...these look swell


added some tater tots and I gotta tell ya, I like the flavors of 1972.  8) This recipe has stood the test of time and is worth a spin.

Excellent Smoke. Great write-up. Funny the recipe asked for MSG that long ago.

Those look great, and I'll bet that pamphlet is a collector's item.

MSG has been around for a long time - I remember using Accent (aka MSG) in the early 1970's to "salt" each bite of sliced roast beef.  Funny thing is that we (my small circle) didn't commonly call it MSG at that time.

You might even increase the surprise by using habaneros instead of the bell pepper in one or two of these packages... :D

Looks good. Thanks for sharing.
