BTW - Its not that I'm wanting to show off, but we're asking for donations of $10/person for all they can eat/drink. I don't want them to feel scammed. I guess if the food is good, they are full and possibly drunk, they will be happy!
ABTs (see recipe section)
Smoked nuts and cheese are better done in advance IMHO, nuts at least a couple of days, cheese at least a week.
Small meatballs, themed or plain with a variety of sauces.
The bacon wrapped scallops ... I've done jumbo wrapped scallops on the smoker and enjoyed them, though they may be better suited to a grilling. One way I liked them was spaced out on skewers, smoked at 225F for around two hours (keep an eye though, don't want the scallops to overcook), then finished quickly on the grill to crisp up the bacon but the grill finish isn't necessary if you are running the smoker hotter, say 300F or above, again just keep an eye on the scallops. Serve with a light brushing of real maple syrup.
