Meat on a stick is my favorite carnival food. Consequently, it’s also my favorite way to eat meat in general, off the bone. I love steaks, chops, chicken on the bone. So, it’s no surprise that when I saw some Tomahawk Pork Chops at the grocery store, I had to have them in my life. This style of preparation is usually done with bone in rib steaks, but in this instance, I was very excited to give it a go. It’s basically a bone in loin chop with the side rib meat completely removed (probably for bacon). The bone is then cleaned and left in place, so that once the chop is done you have a nice little handle to eat it with.
Let’s get this started by telling you that I hate 99% of all shish kebabs. You know what I’m talking about. When people take raw meat and vegetables, thread them onto a skewer with no seasoning and then cook the skewer until the veggies are limp and the meat is like leather? Well, no more! I was tasked with coming up with a super innovative shish kebab recipe that would be “elevated” or world class. No overcooked meat and limp unseasoned vegetables at You Need a BBQ! I tasked myself with finding a vegetable that cooks the same way as meat and then pairing it with some meat and seasoning. My idea came to me with King Oyster Mushrooms and Bacon! Usually when I make King oysters in a frying pan I use sesame oil, so for this recipe I paired it with our sesame BBQ sauce called Samurai Sauce from our friends at BBQ Quebec. The recipe ended up being incredible, so here it is for you to give it a try!
Most times when you think of Jalapeno poppers, you think of Jalapenos stuffed with cheese, then breaded and deep fried. Who does not love them as a party snack! These Jalapeno poppers are something else entirely. There are no breadcrumbs, there is no cheese, just loads of beef, bacon, Jalapeno, and flavor. I served these to the staff in the BBQ shop and they were blown away by not only the flavor combination, but how well the Jalapeno heat was smoothed out by the fat in the bacon and beef.
Smoked Bacon and Little Potato Pancakes, now there is a meal I could get behind. This meal is a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes but can also be made from scratch if that is what your heart desires. When I made this recipe, I topped it with sliced avocados, mayo and Truff hot sauce. In the past I have also done it with sour cream and salsa or a fun mayo, sour cream and BBQ seasoning dip, the sky is the limit!
I love smoked sausage, if I am ever going to a smokehouse for dinner I always get the sausage as one of my meats. I also love bacon, ever since I won the Canadian bacon championships its been a passion of mine to include bacon with all sorts of dishes. When you combine bacon and sausage you really pump up the flavours of both meats, so I recommend giving it a try.
