Bacon & Feta Brussel Sprouts (with a Raspberry Chipotle Glaze)

You Will Need

The Prep

Time to turn this childhood trauma known as brussel sprouts into a snack that you'll actually want to have around your table! As with any recipe, we suggest you take the time to prep all of your ingredients right off the bat. In this case, wash, clean and air dry your veggies and fruit. Cut the stems off the brussel sprouts, and cut them inhalf. Also chop bacon into pieces about an inch in size. This will save some time later on.

The Cook

Grab a large cast iron skillet, and preheat it to a medium-high heat. When ready, add the choppet bacon bits and cook until they are almost cripsy.

Once the bacon is done cooking, get it out off the cast iron and drain on paper towels on a plate. Set aside for now.

Next up, the brussel sprouts! Add them cut side down to the skillet with the bacon grease. Sprinkle with SPG rub to taste, and let them cook. Stir every couple minutes to make sure they all get cooked through. You don't want them to char, or it will ruin the flavor.

The Payoff

You will know they are done cooking when you can poke them with a fork and they are tender-crisp (not too hard OR mushy). This is when you want to add the cooked bacon back into the pan, and remove it from heat.

For the final touch, drizzle with some Raspberry Chipotle Sauce (or your favorite sweet BBQ sauce) and toss to coat. Also add in the crumbled feta, walnuts (optional), and fresh raspberries.

Voila! Your bacon and feta brussels sprouts are ready. Serve right away while they are warm!

Overnight Pork Butts on a Pellet Grill

Effortlessly smoke tender, juicy pork butts overnight on your pellet grill. Perfect for no-fuss, delicious BBQ. Wake up to mouth-watering aromas and ready-to-shred pork.

The EASIEST Overnight Pork Butts On A Pellet Grill EVER!

On today’s video, I’m showing you how to make the easiest, overnight pork butt you’ve ever made in your life! For this pork butt, we’re firing up the Traeger with hickory pellets, but you use whatever cooker, and pellets, you want, just make sure it’s ready to run at 225°F overnight. This video is perfect for beginners that are looking for an easy pork butt recipe. First, I’ll show you how I do a light trim, then we’ll apply a mustard binder, rub it up, and set it on the smoker. And, if you don’t want to trim the fat off, you don’t even have to do that! Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than this smoked pork butt recipe. Even though we aren’t injecting these pork butts, I’ll tell you what I would use if we decided to. And make sure you’re paying attention because I’m showing you exactly how to rack these pork butts for the perfect smoke. Plus, if you’re smoking in the cold, I’ll tell you how I maintain the perfect temperature in my smoker. Once you’ve got the pork butts perfectly placed, shut the lid and don’t touch them for at least 12 hours. When that time is up, I’ll show you how to check the temp, get the perfect wrap, and we’ll finish up the cooking process. Once the pork butts are complete, we’ll shred it, make some killer sandwiches, and what doesn’t get eaten, we’ll store for later. Enough talking, let’s get to cooking.
