Little bite-sized button mushrooms stuffed with pulled pork, cream cheese, onions, jalapeño and whatever else I can think of. If you don't like mushrooms, these fillings are great stuffed into mini sweet peppers, jalapeños or alternatively, they work great as an excellent chip dip.

Remove foiled meat from smoker (carefully) and place on counter to rest for about an hour. (open foil slightly to allow some heat to escape)
