Happy July 4th everyone!
We know you will be cooking out today, and wanted to throw in a very nice, easy, potato recipe. We have made several variations of this in our cooking class, and today we will give you the works.
There are 2 very important ingredients, first the potatoes. It’s very important to choose a creamer variety, either a gold (Yukon Gold), or Red (Creamer Red) variety of potatoes. Why? the creamer potato is harvested young, and yields a very tender, moisture rich, almost buttery flavor and texture. The second very important ingredient is the onions. The best onion for this recipe is the sweet onion, preferably the Vidalia. Why? The Vidalia is grown in a specific region in Georgia, and in my opinion, even though there are look alikes, the Vidalia is king.
Cheesy Grilled Potatoes
6 to 8 Potatoes (Yukon Gold preferably) (Sliced)
2 – sweet Onions (Chopped)
1 – Bell Peppers (chopped)
1 -stick butter
6 to 8 slices – pre-cooked bacon
2 cups – Shredded cheddar cheese (or Jack and Colby combo)
Garlic Lovers Seasoning (or you can use Salt, Pepper, Granulated Garlic)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Combine sliced potatoes, chopped onions, and chopped bell peppers in aluminum foil.
Break bacon into pieces and combine with potatoes.
Drizzle olive oil over potatoes liberally
Place slices of butter evenly across top of mixture
Season liberally with HomeBBQ.com Garlic Lovers Seasoning cook over low heat for 25 to 30 minutes (or until potatoes are soft).
Immediately after Removing from grill, top with shredded cheese, and serve.
Happy July 4th!
As many of you know, almost every Wednesday night, we have been doing backyard BBQ and Grilling classes at All Grills and More in Oviedo, FL. In the classes Clara and I focus on doing recipes that can be easily reproduced for friends and family in their own backyard.
This has been a big hit, and I want to thank all who have participated, we continue to make new friends through this, and personally I love to hear how they made of the recipes from the class at a party they were giving and how much of a hit it was. It definately makes it all worthwhile.
A recipe that has been around for awhile in a few different variations, and has been a big hit in my rib class, is this Apple Baked Beans recipe. Not only does it have a very unique flavor, it is very much a conversation piece while we are making them. And now, I am going to share my variation of this recipe with you.
We start with pre-made baked beans, and my favorite for this is Busch’s Original Baked Beans. Here is the recipe;
Apple Baked Beans
4 (16 oz) cans Bush’s Original Baked Beans
4 slices (cooked) bacon, diced
3/4 cup HomeBBQ.com Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce (or your favorite bbq sauce)
1 lb crumbled cooked Jimmy Dean Maple pork sausage
1 (21oz) can Comstock Apple Pie Filling (break up large pieces of apples)
1 Large sweet onion (Vidalia preferred), finely diced
1 green pepper, finely diced
3/4 cup brown sugar (dark preferrably)
2 1/2 Tblsp. Lee & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
2 1/2 Tblsp. Yellow or Brown Mustard
1 tblsp. Hot Sauce (I prefer Texas Petes or Loiusiana Hot Sauce)
2 tblsp. HomeBBQ.com Rib Rub (or your favorite BBQ Rub)
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
The easy way to do this, is to combine all ingredients and cook on the grill or smoker 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
The second method would be to saute the onions and green peppers, then add them and cook until hot.

Prep Time: 20 min Cook Time 15 min.
Makes 6 servings.
BBQGuide.com notes: Don’t make the mixture runny by following this recipe EXACTLY. Start with a lesser amount of Slaw and Mustard. Of course you can do it all to taste but there is nothing like Marzetti’s Slaw Dressing.
3 tbls paprika
1 tbls chili power
1 tbls onion powder
1 tbls garlic powder
1 tbls black pepper
1 tbls sea salt, or regular table salt
1 tbls sugar
1 tsp cayenne pepper, or more
Add 2 heaping tablespoons of the spice mixture, place in a cast iron pot. You can use a casserole dish but it will get black from the smoke. Place it uncovered way in the back of your pit and let smoke for a couple of hours. Take it off the pit and stir well tasting them to make sure they have enough smokey flavor, you can stick them back on if you want more smoke. Place a top on the pot and keep warm in a oven or sit the pot on the cover of your pit.
