Big Green Egg Chicken Bombs

Big Green Egg Chicken Bombs

This past week I received a package from my friends at Dizzy Pig BBQ Company containing their new rub “Crossroads”. Much like the song lyrics, I fell to my knees and thanked the BBQ Gods for this new flavor featuring a return to traditional BBQ taste! For my cook I wanted to do a classic Big Green Egg recipe that I had never tried before. I have been making a lot of chicken recipes lately so I stuck with the trend and went with Chicken Bombs. I slighty modified the recipe from another great Big Green Egg cooking blog Necessary Indulgences. Now sit back, throw on your favorite Eric Clapton song, and enjoy this recipe for Big Green Egg Chicken Bombs.

Nothing starts the week off better than getting a package from Dizzy Pig BBQ Company containing a new rub to try. Their new rub (Crossroads) focuses on the flavors at the root of good BBQ: Paprika, chilis, garlic, sugar, onion, and salt all come together in this perfectly balanced rub. I cannot wait to get a bigger container of this.

For the cheese mixture I used Pepper Jack cheese and softened cream cheese.

Next up was slicing the jalapenos and filling them with the cheese mixture.
