Grilled Onions (with Beer)BigAl wanted my recipe for an onion that I do on my pellet burner, so I thought I would post it here for ya'll. If you like it great, if you don't well at least you got to drink a beer or two!!!
(I do this all by eye so adjust to your liking)
Take 1 big ass sweet onion and slice off the bottom for flat surface about as big around as a beer can. Slice the onion like a blooming onion down about 3/4 of the way. Sit the flat side on top of aluminum foil and bring foil tight around the outside leaving a chimney out the top.
Melt 2 to 3 T. of butter, add 2 T. of sugar and 1 to 2 T. of your favorite rub/seasoning (I use a pork & poultry rub). Take the onion and the mixture out to the grill separately (this prevents spilling on the wife's floor). Put the onion on the grill, poor the mixture in until it is about to run over and cook right along with whatever you have on the grill.
The key to this recipe is that it requires you to drink a few beers while it cooks. Every so often fill the foil put to the top of the chimney with a little of the beer you have in your hand. Depending on your heat, it takes about 45 to 60 minutes until done or until tender.
I have found that it is best served with any meat and potato combination and of course chased down with a flavor of beer to your liking! ENJOY.
