I have an event coming up in September and I'm looking for ideas for appetizers. I'm looking for something different than the usual rattlesnake eggs, poppers' ect ect. Something good on a grill outdoors or deep fried. Thanks in advance!

All kinds of chicken wings other than buffalo. Sliders are good too.

My current favorite is “Quail Knots” from Texas Quail Farms. They are really good grilled but I like them best fried then tossed in a glaze of butter, honey and hot sauce. They are expensive ($85 for a box of 48) so I only buy them for special occasions - always a huge hit.

Good ideas! Those quail sound good but too expensive to feed 250 people. I'll have to try that for the family! Ozark grillers sound good!

Not in the area you asked for, but cold boiled shrimp are always a hit.

Deep fried alligator bites with a roumalade dipping sauce

Take small (mudbug boil sized) new potatoes and cut them either into 1/2's or 1/4's , wrap half of a slice of maple smoked bacon around it. Sprinkle either Season All or Tony C's on it (secure bacon with toothpick) cook in the oven at about 400 until bacon is done ........DAY-UM its good!!!!

Kind of need a theme or variety depending on the event.

Smoke some pork belly. Can be very versatile with seasonings and setup. Serve alone with toothpick. Small corn tortilla with condiments... Sticky bun with condiments... Hawaiian bun with condiments. You get the idea. Also could fry some up as cracklins.

Don't forget boudin balls.

There is a recipe post in the recipe section by Grizz83 for hot fried doves. You could probably copy that with cuts from chicken breast and/or thighs

Always wanted to experiment with quail legs - fried, smoked...

Or one of my all time favorite event appetizers is from Chef John Bonnell. Green Chili Cheese Grit Tacos, dress with pico. Don't turn your nose up. Try one and then get back in line for more!

If you want to keep it simple get some ham and American cheese cut on 2 or 3. Lay slices on top of each other and cut into 1-2" strips. Roll up and put a toothpick in them. Then take mustard and add brown sugar until it is thick and to taste as you like it.

We use ground hog to make scotch eggs. They slice into 1/4s and have a nice presentation.

Fried Pork Ribs. Have them cut them about 2" long when you buy them, then slice between the bones. Season with salt and pepper, roll in flour, put them in the grease.

My husband likes to take canned jalapenos, slice lengthwise, and stuff with crab meat mix. The crab meat mix is canned crab mixed with mayo, cajun seasoning and paprika. You could use fresh jalapenos, but those will be very hot. Refrigerate.

I like bacon wrapped figs. Slice bacon in half, wrap around a fig. Sprinke the tops with brown sugar. You can mix the brown sugar with hickory steak seasoning or cajun seasoning, too. Bake in the oven on 410 for 20 minutes.

I'm sorry, I said figs, I meant dates (dried figs).

HEB has them over by the fresh fruits and vegetables. Get the one with the yellow label by Medjool Dates. It already has the pits removed. The red label has the pits.

Simple and everyone will love them,
Slice whole canned Jalapenos peppers in half lengthwise, use a spoon to clean out the pith and seeds, Stuff with Price's pimiento cheese, serve cold.

If you can find San Marcos brand peppers, they are especially mild.
