Today I wanted to talk about some delicious sides you can make in your smoker, right along with whatever main course you've decided to cook up. The other day I was making some chicken breasts in a bacon weave, and I had some left over bacon. I was going to do baked potatoes as a side, but then inspiration struck.
Now I'm not claiming that I invented bacon wrapped smoked veggies, but trust me these are damned good, and whoever did is a genius.
Basically the idea is to slice up a potato into quarters the long way, then wrap each section with bacon, and into the smoker with it. Another amazing variation in wrapping onion rings with bacon and smoking them that same way
Bacon Wrapped Potatoes
- Russet Potatoes
- Rib Rub
- Cut the potatoes the long way into quarters
- Wrap each section with bacon and secure with toothpicks
- Dust the outside of the bacon with Rib Rub
- Place into your smoker at 225 degrees
- Should take 1-2 hours to cook, to check for doneness make sure bacon is cooked through.
Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings
- Large Yellow Onions
- Sriracha Sauce
- Cut onion into sections of rings 3/4 inches thick
- Keep two sections of onion together (one inside the other) and put sriracha sauce on the top.
- Wrap the onion rings in bacon and secure with a toothpick
- Smoke at 225 degrees for 1-2 hours
- When bacon is cooked through they are ready to eat
