Wrapped up in a neat little package June 22 2016

Being new to the smoking world, I decided to start out gently and build my abilities.  First up is the use of wraps.  This method is so easy and the results are the prettiest little package you can put on a plate.

Start by soaking your wraps in water for 30-60 minutes.

Next, pile on the veggies ( I used sugar snap peas, match stick carrots and slivered sweet onion dressed with a little drizzle of soy sauce, olive oil and a grind of lemon pepper).  


Top the pile of veggies with a nice meat serving (I had a package of baby back ribs that came pre-cooked and slathered in BBQ sauce).  

Fold the wrap up over the food and tie it with a length of cotton cord (included with your wraps).  

Place it into a preheated 375 degree oven for 20-30 minutes on a shallow backing dish or jelly roll pan.  Alternately you can place it on tin foil with the sides gently folded upward to catch any drippings.  This can also be done directly on a medium heat grill.  Close the lid if you use the grill and sit back and wait.  

All that is left to do is plate it up and watch the eyes of your guests when they see the gorgeous little bundles. But, wait for it, soon you will hear the moans of delight at they dig in.
