    You would have to seal them really well - maybe with a cornstarch
    paste - and keep the moisture down. Fat inside is OK.

    I have trouble just keeping crab rangoon from bursting. But I'm a
    chronic overstuffer.

    I wouldn't use cornstarch, just a wide and well-moistened
    margin, and let them sit for a little while before frying
    instead of frying immediately, to give time for the seal
    to take. Definitely keep the moisture in the filling low,
    because that causes steam which makes the wonton swell up
    and burst. For some types of filling, it's helpful to
    pan-fry it to drive off the moisture before making the
    wontons. You can make a simple and tasty filling by
    breaking up some pork breakfast sausages and frying them
    with chopped parsley. Some chopped water chestnuts would
    give it a more interesting texture, but pork and parsley
    are pretty good by themselves.

    Overstuffing definitely will cause a cream-cheese-based
    stuffing to burst. You need to show restraint.

    Oh man@! Yum. Care to give a recipe for all that? I'm mainly interested
    in the hot dipping sauce.

    I whipped up a dipping sauce last night by memory to use with a veggie
    eggroll. It was ok but not all that. I wanted something other than duck
    sauce. A hot Thai sauce might be nice in the future.

    The origins of crab rangoon are shrouded in mystery. In St. Louis,
    the Chinese takeouts have this truly horrible item called a St. Paul
    Sandwich:
    "The sandwich consists of an egg foo young patty (made with mung bean
    sprouts and minced white onions) served with dill pickle slices, white
    onion, mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato between two slices of white
    bread."

    Have you ever tried deep frying those dumplings? I wonder if they stay
    together or burst open.

    What makes you think I've never had a fried wonton?

    The filling matters. And these are more of a dumpling, which would usually
    be steamed or "pot stuck". (I figured it was ok to convert pot sticker to a
    verb, heh.. for lack of a better short description of the action. It's not
    really a braise or a fry.)

    Yes, with a thicker wrapper like egg roll wrappers. Easier to handle, but
    just too thick. I'm wanting a thin wrapper like spring rolls.

    The more I think about it the more it makes sense to use spring roll
    wrappers. I did it four years ago for the Royal (veggie) and Great American
    (appetizer, any filling, second place). What I'm wanting to do is get the
    fire roasted veggies into an interesting "delivery vehicle". The veggie comp
    only allows 7% meat content max. So I'm thinking about grilling chicken
    skin, then dropping in the fryer for a minute to totally crisp it, and then
    chopping it up into the mix. Or maybe drop some pulled pork into the fryer,
    (thinking into the keyboard here), now this is channeling a carnitas spring
    roll! Anyway, I also can have salty smoked brisket cooking juices, or pork,
    (smoke, then finish in a foiled pan to create the jus) for a dipping sauce,
    or I could just serve with a duck sauce, or something else.

    Originally the concept for the filling was as a vehicle for Mexican style
    street corn cut from the cob to make a filling with the other fire roasted
    goodies. But over time it has wandered away from the emphasis on the corn.
    Maybe I should revert a bit. Or not.

    I don't mind if it has asian flavor notes but being part of a barbecue
    contest, I don't want to lose the fire roasted flavor or screw up the flavor
    profile with something contradictory. (Sides don't have to be "barbecued"
    but OTOH context is important, as is offering something unusual.)

    To that end I'm fairly happy with the previous filling I used for deep fried
    empanadas, which was more mexican due to the seasonings and cheeses used.
    But the empanadas were problematic in that environment. (I used very fresh
    steam-softened tortillas for the wrapper, where "Discos" empanada crusts
    just did not fry well. Tortillas give mixed results, some great scores, some
    not so much)

    Thinking into the keyboard again, why couldn't I use spring roll wrappers,
    and the mexican style finish? The grilled corn, onions, and peppers worked
    very well with chipotle, ancho paste, lime juice, cream cheese, and melting
    cheese. Hmm. I've got some testing to do, 10 days to deadline.

    Butternut or red kuri squash filling in a spring roll wrapper packet? Hmm.
    The mad scientist in me gets loose every year about this time. Thart's where
    the potato tacos came from that won first place last year. ;-) (Potato is a
    different comp category, we do veg, potato, and beans.)

    I'm open to ideas. ;-)

    Did you see the pulled pork egg rolls I did last night? The one on
    the left is a regular pork and shrimp egg roll with Mae Ploy +
    sriracha. The one on the right is pulled pork with sauce and onions,
    with extra "Carolina" sauce for dipping.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/sqwertz...ream/lightbox/

    I was going to add cole slaw to the BBQ pork egg rolls but it was a
    last minute thing (had extra wrappers) and I didn't have any slaw
    handy. I did need more wetness.

    What do you mean by spring roll wrapper? They are made from flour and
    are meant to be fried. *Summer* roll wrappers (Banh trang) are the
    rice and tapioca one that are not cooked. At some point in the late
    80's the translations got screwed up and now everybody mistakes spring
    rolls for summer rolls.

    Orlando has two excellent Pho houses downtown,

    Is Pho 88 more Central Vietnam cuisine? I was near Danang in
    69-70 and the uncooked rolls the kids sold us were called Spring
    rolls.

    I couldn't figure out why every time I ordered them here they came
    cooked. [I *much* prefer the uncooked ones- dipped in some black,
    garlicky, salty, Nuoc-Mam based sauce that I haven't made in ages]

    I have no idea about the styles of cuisine. Little Saigon is a warmer,
    friendlier restaurant and easily my choice. Once in Little Saigon
    I asked the difference between the two names and my server told
    me that I wanted the summer rolls. OK. Then I asked a server in
    Pho 88 and he told me that "we call them both." OK. I didn't go
    beyond those two questions.

    I wonder if Pho 88 is a chain or jes a popular name. Seems there were
    more than a couple Pho 88s around the US. Ranch 99 is a very popular
    sprmkt chain in SFBA. Are double numbers a common/popular Asian naming
    practice? Jes curious.
