Cheesy Bacon BBQ Potatoes

Mounds of seasoned potatoes with onions, bacon, chipotle BBQ sauce and tons of cheese! What’s not to love? This is a super easy recipe that will take you 15 minutes to make followed by just 40 minutes in the smoker. I’ve used it as a great side dish but is hearty enough for a meal too.

Mom Comfort Foods BBQ Style

This week I smoked all 3 dishes in my Marshall from The Good One Smokers. The Good One also makes lump charcoal which is my go to fuel but the store ran out this week so I decided to try the hickory/oak lump charcoal from Big Green Egg. I was pleasantly surprised at how steadily and consistently it burned. The Marshall is a well-designed smoker that makes it easy to reach cooking temps and hold them with little adjustment so the Big Green Egg charcoal worked well with it.

I recently tried Three Little Pigs” Kansas City Sweet sauce and it’s one of my new favorites so I used it in both the meatloaf and stuffed cabbage recipes. I find many KC style sauces too sweet for my tastes which tend towards vinegar or mustard based sauces. This one had a nice tanginess to it that kept it from being overly sweet. It’ also has a nice chunky consistency which reminded of Sensuous Slathering Sauce from Dinosaur BBQ-another favorite I’ve used for years.

All of these products are available at both BBQ Pit Stop locations in Lehi and Layton. Good_One

Grandpa Joe’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Smoked Beans

Recently at a neighborhood BBQ I tasted some beans that were exceptional and found out they’d been brought by my friend Rochelle Hewett. She told me it was her dad’s recipe that had been in their family forever. She called them Grandpa Joe’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Beans and gave me permission to prepare them and share here in the blog.. 

Rochelle usually makes the beans in a crock pot so we adapted the recipe slightly to maximize the flavor from the smoke. I cooked these in my Yoder YS480 and used hickory pellets from BBQr’s Delight which are available at both BBQ Pit Stop locations. DSC_0066
