Pizza With Honey Bourbon Sauce

I discovered how easy it is to grill pizza several years ago and I've made so many different combinations since! It's a great way to clean out the frig and use bits and pieces left over too.  It's an easy process especially if you take a simple shortcut of buying fresh pizza dough. I get mine from the local pizza shop- most are happy to sell you just the dough ball. If you are going gluten free there are several gluten free pizza doughs that will work and of course the sauces are gluten free.  I usually get a large pizza dough ball and divide it into 4 sections. Flour your counter top just enough so that the dough doesn't...

Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin with Apple Rum BBQ Sauce

We love pork. It's doesn't matter if it's in the form of bacon, pork chops, baby back ribs, pork picnic shoulder, ham or a pork loin!  Apples and pork of any kind are a classic combination and I have always had apple sauce with my pork. Until I came up with these sauces and that just changed everything about the way I look at pork!  Apple Rum BBQ Sauce has become the go to sauce around here just because it goes with everything!!!  It's apple, smoky, with a bit of cayenne for a little spice. Gluten, Soy and Dairy Free so everyone can enjoy it too. So I took the time to make a combination of bacon, pork loin and...

Smoked Potatoes With Apple Rum BBQ Sauce

Maine is a big potato producer and being from northern Maine, also known as The County, potatoes were everywhere. There are so many great ways to enjoy potatoes so of course I just had to try doing them in the smoker!  I've prepared potatoes many ways over the years but combining them with cheese, bacon and our award winning Apple Rum Sauce is one of my favorites.   Even though I did these in the smoker you could easily do them in the oven.  Here's how: Wash potatoes- I use either round whites or russets.  Cook 3-4 bacon strips, cook and chop. Microwave for 5-6 minutes, you want them to be just starting to soften.  When cool slice potatoes into 1/4"...

Wild Turkey With Apple Rum Sauce

It's Spring and that means turkey hunting time across the country. Wild turkey is different from farm raised turkey. It's not gamey and if cooked correctly is moist and delicious. Most of the time we breast out the wild turkey and are left with a very large skinless cut of meat. After cutting the meat out I place the meat in a bowl with water and allow it to soak for several hours in the refrigerator. I don't add anything to the water.                                          So what is a good way to prepare your harvest? One of our favorite ways is to use...

Apple Rum Sauce Rocks Chicken With Bacon

Looking for an easy appetizer to wow guests at parties? Chicken wrapped bacon with our Apple Rum BBQ Sauce is so easy and YUMMY!! These chicken bites are great to make ahead and just pop in the broiler when guests arrive.  I use 2 boneless skinless chicken breast and 1 pound of regular hardwood smoked bacon for 12 people. Cut the chicken in to cubes about 1.5 inches in size. Cut the bacon into thirds while it's still in the package. Wrap each piece of chicken with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. I then put the chicken bites in a shallow dish and pour on our Apple Rum Sauce. If you are making these the day...
