Potato Tart, Bacon Bacon Bacon, our thanks to Chef Michael Smith for this idea! It’s an awesome side dish, but would work well as a main dish. We used two whole pounds of fresh bacon combined with Ken’s smoked cheddar cheese, sliced potatoes, onions and garlic. We seasoned it to perfection with “Swimmin’ in Smoke Boo Yah Beef” and coarse grind black pepper. I think except for adult beverages we’ve covered all our favorite food groups. The smell of smoking bacon will cover your neighborhood give everyone lots of hungry and happy thoughts…

This is a big recipe; it’s both easy and fun to make and great to eat.

Directions: Potato Tart, Bacon Bacon Bacon

Get your potatoes, onions and garlic to together and sliced. I like a rough chop on the garlic, but you can do this however you like or even leave it out if you’re not a garlic fan. Use an oven safe pie plate, pot/pan or cast iron skillet spray with oil and line with parchment paper. (See Video) Line pan with bacon starting at the center of the pan and draping the bacon over the side. (See Video) Offset each slice of bacon or you end up with a big pile in the middle of your pan.

Layer the potatoes on top of the bacon, then onions, garlic and cheese. Repeat until you get to the top. Then, on each layer start holding back for the edge as you build it up. Keep in mind that it will cook down so pile it high.

When you have all your layers in bring the bacon up working around covering the top. The bacon will curl while cooking so put a heavy lid on top to hold it in place. (See Video) You are now ready for the grill for 2 ½ hours at 350 degrees (177c). Remove cover the last 30 minutes to brown the bacon.

I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temperatures.

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.

Cooking In the Oven:

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the Oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time.

It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Green Mountain grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels.

Do this for 2 ½ hours at 350 (177c) and put it on a cookie sheet when doing this in your oven because of all the bacon dripping will make a mess in your oven.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char-Griller, 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….
