BBQ Basics

16 slices of bacon

4 apples

1 c. Head Country BBQ Sauce, The Original or Hot & Spicy

3 Tbsp. white vinegar

Cooking Instructions

BBQ Apple Bacon-Wrapped Chicken
Wrap each piece of chicken with two slices of bacon. Place the bacon-wrapped chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker with a capacity of at least 6 quarts.

Grate the apples to the core and place in a large bowl. Add the BBQ sauce, garlic powder, and vinegar; stir to combine. Pour the BBQ mixture over the chicken.

Cook chicken on low for 6-8 hours (or on high for 3-4 hours). Transfer the chicken to a baking dish and broil on low for 5-7 minutes. Spoon the pan juices over the chicken a time or two. The chicken is done when the bacon begins to crisp and the sauce starts to caramelize.

Serve with the pan sauce and Broccoli Apple salad.


Broccoli Apple Salad

Core and dice the apples. Chop the almonds. Add the apples and the almonds to the bowl with
the broccoli and stir to mix.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, white vinegar, and sugar. Add to the broccoli mixture and
stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.
