Bacon Wrapped Pork Kabobs pellet grill recipe BBQ smokerBacon Wrapped Pork Kabobs

Patti had a couple of nice pork tenderloins that I wanted to do something a little different. The first thought I had was bacon, of course, that’s normal for us so I move on in the thought process. Which sometimes is a painful process for me. My second and third thoughts were more bacon. Ok, I can sometimes take a hint, always when it involves Patti and our BBQ.

What I came up was 1½ inch thick pork medallions wrapped in bacon and put on skewers. Then, we drizzled them with Country Bob’s Barbeque Sauce, smoked for about 45 minutes and then grilled. Ooey Gooey delicious, served up with Patti’s first run of her new “Stuffed Chipotle Potato Balls” and our garlic skillet.

As a special treat we were given some of Lumberjacks new “Lumber Jill” Italian Blend garlic wood pellets adding a nice smoky garlic flavor to our chicken. Very nice, you have got to try these.

Bacon Wrapped Pork Kabobs pellet grill recipe BBQ smokerTwo Skewers Through Them So They Won’t Roll When You Turn Them

Directions: Bacon Wrapped Pork Kabobs

Trim up the tenderloins, cutting away any silver skin, fat and ragged ends. Cut them into about 1½ inch medallions, wrap with bacon and place on a skewer using the skewer to hold the bacon in place. Note: I ran 2 skewers through them so that they wouldn’t roll when I turned them. (Just makes it a little easier)

Sprinkle with a little of Country Bob’s Seasoning Salt and you are ready for the grill. Add your BBQ sauce the last 10 minutes or so of your cooking so it doesn’t burn. The kabobs will be ready when the internal temperature is 145 degrees (63c) (U.S.D.A.) and when the bacon is done to your taste.

Cooking Directions: Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off. Set the temperature to 450 degrees and press the “Start” button. Give the grill about 15 minutes to reach temperature and the grates to burn clean.

Note: You can set the start temperature anywhere you want. I do 450 (230c) for a quick cleaning burn.

I like to smoke everything for at least 30 minutes with an hour being even better. After all the Louisiana pellet grill is a awesome smoker so use it for all the wood smoke flavor it will add to your food.

So after the grill comes up to temp and burns clean turn it back down to 180 degrees (84c). Place everything directly onto the grill and just let it hang out in the smoke and get happy for 30 minutes or so. This is referred to as “Smoking” or “Hot Smoking”, the temperature is 180 degrees (84c). 30 minutes of smoking is not enough to have any cooking effect on your meat but it is enough to open the pores so that the meat can pick up all the flavor of the smoke.

After 30 minutes, turn the (Temperature Control) up to 350 degrees (177c). Add your BBQ sauce the last 10 minutes or so of your cooking so it doesn’t burn. The kabobs will be ready when the internal temperature is 145 degrees (63c) (U.S.D.A.) and when the bacon is done to your taste.

Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. So for medium pull it at 140 (60c) and overdone 160 (72c). I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About Our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion,
Ken & Patti
