  1. Lay down 4 slices of bacon slightly overlapping the edges. Arrange the duck, chicken and turkey on top of the bacon. Remove the boudin from the casing and spread it on top.
  2. Cut the green onions in half and put only the green part on top. Slice approximately 1 1/2 ounces cream cheese into a 4-inch slice and put it on top of the green onion. Roll into football shape and put on top of the remaining piece of bacon (crossways). Fold the bacon over the top and secure with toothpicks.
  3. Preheat the smoker with hickory chips on indirect heat.
  4. Smoke for 1 hour or deep-fry in hot oil for 10 to 12 minutes (or a combo of both).
  5. Cut into sushi-style 1/2-inch slices. Let the footballs sit for several minutes and serve.
