Bacon-Wrapped Onion Bombs

Was poking around YouTube and had forgotten about these guys. I’ve seen ‘em called different things, but the technique is similar. Core a bunch of Vidalias, stuff ‘em with your favorite meatball recipe, wrap in bacon and smoke at 250 or so until the internal on a couple hit 155. Then paint with BBQ sauce and back in for a half hour to get tacky. Top with a slice of provolone for 15 more and you’re home. I used a pecan/cherry combo. Finish with a drizzle of sauce (not pictured).

    I think I remember those from back in the day.  What did you think about how they turned out?

    Thought they were great. If cooked to temp and not overdone, they can stand on their own, but another layer of sauce never hurts. A red sauce would be a good finish, but I’d skip the earlier BBQ sauce glaze.

    I wonder if they would be good stuffed with SGH’s appetizer mix . Maybe skip the bacon since it would make my doctor happy. It needs the bbq sauce and cheese though.

    👍 Cook time was 2 1/2 hours and I maintained it right around 250 throughout. Prep time could be an hour or so, depending how many you make. Coring the onions is pretty simple, but a bit time-consuming and requires some concentration to keep a couple outer rings intact. They can easily be built in advance, though.
