Some old-school barbecue connoisseurs stick with the classic BBQ dishes like a red-eye steak, baby back ribs or maybe hamburgers. This is fast changing as everyday people come up with their own versions of these dishes.

Bacon is a popular favorite among foodies. While it was considered more of a breakfast food in the past, that view is now changing. While nothing can beat some good old bacon and eggs, some of the innovative new dishes out there are giving it serious competition. One such dish is the BBQ bacon wrapped onion bombs. This dish is exactly what it claims to be, grilled onions filled with meat and seasoning, wrapped with yummy bacon. What’s not to like?

The best part about this dish is that it is super easy to prepare. This is one of those dishes which do not require much planning in advance. Also, it is quite convenient to make this dish for a crowd. If you are expecting a large party and want an easy, homemade appetizer then this dish is the way to go. While it is perfect as an appetizer, you can also serve this dish as part of the main course. Whip up a quick salad and mashed potatoes along with these onion bombs and you are set for dinner. The kids will enjoy this dish as much as the adults. It should not take more than an hour and a half to prepare this dish.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 large white onions
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • pellet smoker reviews
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce of your choice, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 lb bacon strips
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Spring onions for garnishing, optional

 

Method 

First, the onions have to be scored. To do this, begin as you normally would while cutting an onion and peel the outer layer. Cut off the stem and start cutting out the inner layers of the onion with a paring knife. Once it is scored, set it aside and prepare the stuffing. Take the ground beef in a bowl and combine with your BBQ sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix well and make sure it is thoroughly combined. Stuff the onions with this mixture. 

Carefully wrap each of the stuffed onions with bacon pieces; you could use toothpicks to hold them together if needed. Place the onion bombs on baking sheets and pop them into the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about half an hour. Once the bacon starts browning, remove from the oven and lightly brush them with the BBQ sauce. Bake for another 45 to 50 minutes and then take your onion bombs out of the oven. Allow them to cool for a few minutes and garnish with the spring onions. Your BBQ bacon wrapped onion bombs are ready to serve.

Grilled leek vinaigrette

Leeks after the entire patch of winter season they are sweet and mellow and thus particularly taste amazingly fantastic in spring. 

An easy to make a healthy, flavourful dish is now here.

Get started with a spring salad to be tossed perfectly with your lunch or dinner or even as an evening snack.

Without wasting much time, collect all the ingredients- 8-10 leeks (which looks similar to asparagus, salt, vinegar, olive oil, mustard and some freshly grounded peppers.

So let’s begin.

Initially rinse the leeks properly to dust the sand out of them or can even leave them in water for a while so they get cleaned completely. Cut aside the dark green ends from the leeks and keep them aside. (They can be used later on for other things.) Now cut them lengthwise from the top to bottom by using a sharp knife. Fill one bowl with cold water, keep it aside and take a pan to boil water in it,  add leeks and salt it well. For about 4-5 minutes blanch the leeks well until they are tender. The moment you feel they are tender, immediately transfer them into the iced-cold water that you had kept aside earlier. Once they are cold, drain the water, dry them and keep them aside. The leeks till this step can also be done a day before.

Next step is to combine mustard and vinegar in a small bowl. Slowly, add olive and oil to the combination and whisk it well to form a vinaigrette. Whisk it so it becomes a bit thick and adds the seasonings, salt, and pepper. Bring forth the leeks you kept aside and brush them very lightly with some vinaigrette and place them on a griller pan or the griller tray. Grill them for about 2-3 minutes till they are hot and can be seen as perfectly grilled with some grilled marks. It’s better if you could marinate the leeks for about 3-5 hours or even over-night. Longer the marinated, more tender and tastier it will be. Remove them from the grill, serve at room temperature, with the remaining vinaigrette and enjoy! You can even garnish it with some basil or parsley.

Tip – if you serve this with some roasted chicken or grilled vegetables and bacon, you just add leeks and vinaigrette but if you serve this as a proper lunch or main course meal, you should add some eggs or bacon.You are even free to add grated radish while serving the dish.

One can also toss the marinated leeks with some bell pepper and onions, the same marinades in the vinaigrette.

And can even brush the grilled leeks with soya sauce.

An interesting tip can be to prepare leeks 1 day ahead and cover them and chill or put them in an air tight container. But remember to bring the leeks to room temperature before serving them.

 An amazing dish for the vegetarians. Leeks vinaigrette is simply a classic.

Come on, wear your chef’s hats and start on!

Charcoal Grills: Edging Over Electric Grills?

Barbecuing meat and seafood is a big part of many cuisines all over the world. For many, barbecuing is a hobby. The methods used to barbecue meat have undergone a change over the past couple of decades. With the advent of electric smokers and grills, the traditional charcoal grill has been pushed to the back burner. While an electric or propane smoker may be easier to use, there is a reason why the good old charcoal grill has stuck around. Beginners to the world of barbecue might think charcoal grills are too much of a hassle and an electric smoker is a much better option but this isn’t strictly true.

The following points explain why the charcoal grill is still the best way to BBQ:

  • Temperature

Now, the main reason most people are switching to electric smokers is because the temperature can be easily controlled by the user. However, charcoal grill accessories are much better suited as they can sustain high temperatures of 500-700 degrees. The high temperature ensures that the meat is cooked inside and out. For all the steak lovers out there, a charcoal grill is the only BBQ appliance that can give you the perfect steak with a crispy exterior and a warm, red center. Also, a charcoal grill cooks the meat slowly, which keeps the meat moist and tender for a longer time.

  • Better Flavor

All experienced barbecue lovers swear by charcoal grills. This is because an electric or gas grill cannot give you that rich, smoky barbecue flavor that a charcoal grill can. The distinct smoky flavor you get from a charcoal grill is lost in any other barbecue method.

  • Portability

Charcoal grills are perfect for outdoor barbecue picnics at the park, while camping or even in your own backyard. Unlike electric grills, they do not need to be plugged in and so you can easily set it up and barbecue meat even when you are on the move.

  • Cost

Charcoal grills are by far the least expensive type of BBQ appliance. If you are a beginner to barbecuing and do not want to shell out too much on your first grill, a charcoal grill is a way to go.

  • The Process

Barbecuing on a charcoal grill does take more time and attention compared to the newer grills out there. But for those who enjoy the process of barbecuing, nothing can compare to the charcoal grill. A charcoal grill can be great for an all-day outdoor barbecue party. Also, the process of barbecuing using a charcoal grill ensure that the nutrients in the meat are retained, making it a healthy option.

Charcoal grills also have to be handled with a lot of care. These guidelines by MIT are really helpful to put safety concerns to bed.

The charcoal grill is a favorite among barbecue connoisseurs due to the amazing, unique flavor it imparts to the meat. It has been used for centuries past and is still used by professional chefs as well as amateur barbecue enthusiasts. While it may not offer the push-button convenience offered by newer BBQ appliances, it will continue to remain a favorite with barbecue lovers all over the world.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb Chicken breasts
  • Olive oil

For the Spice Rub

  • 2 tablespoons of paprika
  • 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

For the Citrus Glaze

  • 1/2 cup of Orange juice
  • Fresh Orange zest
  • Lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon of Honey
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter

Here’s what you need to do

Take a small bowl and mix all the dry spices in it. It’s a classic rub but don’t let the simplicity fool you because this is what makes this dish so scrumptious and perfectly seasoned. You can also adjust this spice rub as per your convenience and taste.

Cover the boneless and skinless chicken breasts with plastic and then pound them to make them tender and also so that they cook evenly on the grill.

Now brush the chicken breasts with a bit of olive oil and coat the chicken with the spice rub generously. Once the rub is applied, let the chicken sit for a couple of hours so that it absorbs the flavors decently.

In the meantime, you can prepare the glaze. Take 2 fresh oranges and shave some of its skin for the zest. Now cut the oranges in half and juice them so that you get up to ½ a cup of fresh orange juice. You can also use packaged orange juice for the same. Now in a bowl, take about 1 tablespoon of honey, fresh orange juice, lime juice, a bit of the zest, Worcestershire sauce, and melted butter and mix them all together to get a smooth glaze.

Drizzle this glaze on the chicken breasts and now place them on a tray covered with foil.

Keep your pellet grill pre-heated at about 240 F. Now place the chicken pieces skin-side down on the grill with the help of tongs instead of forks or any other sharp object because it might pierce the meat. Let the chicken cook for 45 minutes- 1 hour, turn the pieces halfway through and you can also glaze them again in this procedure. Don’t open the lid too much because the meat needs the heat and to maintain the smoked flavor intact.

Take them off the grill and let them rest for 5-10 minutes. Now serve them with light homemade coleslaw (optional) and your favorite BBQ sauce. An amazing flavor packed plate of smoked chicken prepared on a grill is ready to serve!
