Thread Starter 

Its our 30th anniversary coming up June 1 so we are throwing a BBQ at the park on Sunday May 31.

We will be smoking butts for pulled pork, smoke chicken, hamburger and hot dogs.

Now for the appetizers I'm making ABT ,  moinks , pork shots, (mushroom with  moinks wrap in bacon).

now what else can I make......need to show off my BBQ skills :icon_biggrin:

Congratulations on 30! One of my favorites is cream cheese stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon.

I'm making Bacon wrapped Pineapple for my "new 40" birthday party on May 30th.

  • 1 pound Bacon
  • 1 can Chunked Pineapple (large Chunks)
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar

Cut the pound of bacon in half. Put the brown sugar in a shallow bowl. Take a half a slice of bacon and dredge it through the brown sugar. Put a chunk of pineapple on one end of the bacon slice and roll up. Secure with a toothpick.

 

I plan on putting them in the smoker or doing on the grill to get the bacon crisp faster.

 

The original recipe calls for a 375* oven -

Put a cookie cooling rack into a foil-lined jelly roll pan.

Lay the bacon pineapple bundles onto the rack.

Bake for at least 25 minutes, or until the bacon looks brown and crispy.

Sometimes I pop them under the broiler for the last few minutes just to get them really crisp. But watch out – the sugar will burn!

Try to wait for them to cool slightly – only because they will burn your lips if too hot!

Enjoy.

Our 46th Anniversary was the end of December, and that's not the time to do a lot outside here in PA, but I did manage a pretty nice Dinner for the 2 of us.

Here's a Peek:

You could slice single rib bones and wrap them in bacon rub before the bacon and after.

Consider something cool and crisp for contrast, too, like a slaw or a cuke salad:

 

Peel and dice cucumber. Spread it out in a big colander, give it a good sprinkle of salt, and toss to mix. Leave that in the sink or on a big plate for 10 - 20 minutes, the cukes will release moisture. Make a 50/50 mix of plain yogurt and sour cream; you could add flavors like dill or chives or garlic, or maybe some fine-minced red onion. Combine with the diced cukes, and chill.

Another way to sneak in some salad: Make small grilled patties of ground pork with Asian flavors like ginger, green onion, soy, etc., whatever your favorites are. Serve them wrapped in a leaf of iceburg lettuce or maybe napa cabbage, presented as finger food.

 

We used to make those; for some reason we always called them "Vietnamese bombers." They can be a bit messy so have napkins handy.
