So, I was going to make some poor man’s burnt ends with a chuck roast I had bought but unfortunately, it was still frozen. Oh, I know, I have a couple good hot links. Ah ha, I can wrap them in bacon. Oh, wait, I have some bacon flavored sausage too. Oh, it is on now…frankendog time! I also added a pickle slice, some cheese and mustard for good measure.
I let the pickles go for an hour and a half then pulled them, cooled them down and back into the jar with the pickle juice. Of course I had to try one hot off the grill. Wow! What a great addition to a pickle. The smokiness seemed to make them taste dillier. (Is that even a word)? Next time I will do bigger pickles but hollowed out and stuffed. Probably wrapped in bacon too. 🙂 Anyhow, after the bacon was done to my liking I glazed the sausages very lightly with some BBQ sauce. I did not want BBQ flavor just a nice shine. Beautiful!
Juicy, spicy, salty and smokey! Fantastic indeed. They could have used twice that amount of cheese and another pickle slice probably and they did not need the rub as they were a touch salty but not over powering. I will be making similar creations again for sure. The smoked pickles were a nice addition as they cut through some of the fattiness and saltiness of the sausages. Well, thanks for checking out this new crazy deliciousness. Until next time…
