    Chocolatl's Note:

    A popular Brazilian appetizer. Adapted from Planet Barbecue. Try to find the straightest sausage links possible. Other cooked sausage may be substituted; kielbasa is a good alternative.

      Yum! I don't think that I've ever had linguica before but will definitely have it again. This is so super simple and tasty. I grilled these up with some chicken wings for watching football today and they were gone in a flash. Wish I'd made more. Thanks Chocolatl for a great keeper and introducing me to a brand new treat. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

      What a great idea! I used regular smoked sweets for the sausage and cojito cheese. These were really really good. Made for ZWT 7.
