Avocado! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? !
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Avocado and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!!
2 Avocados, Medium Sized
1 package of Bacon
18 oz of Chorizo
4 oz of cheese of choice
InstructionsSplit the avocado and remove the pit, then carefully remove the skin and fill the hole where the pit was with a cheese of your choice and close the avocado back up. Lay out some chorizo flat on a clean surface and roll the avocado in it so the entire avocado is covered and then wrap that in bacon! Now be very careful when you place this on the grill as it will want to come apart, the fats from the Chorizo and the Bacon will not adhere well to the outside of the Avocado so the bacon wrap must be tight to keep everything in place. Grill at 375 for about 30 minutes or until Chorizo and Bacon have reached desired level of doneness! Take off and slice and serve hot!
So, Will it BBQ?
We went a little “mad scientist” on this one and tossed everything but the kitchen sink at it. It was noted when we were done that since Avocados are already high in fat this was a fat (the cheese) inside of a fat (the avocado) wrapped in fat (Chorizo is high in fat) wrapped in fat (Bacon is obviously fatty) but even for the hell this probably put our arteries through it was well worth it as this was incredibly savory! This will most certainly BBQ, it was an incredibly tasty creation that was as fun to eat as it was to make!

Hey y’all checking in from Greensboro, NC. I have been making kielbasa and summer sausage for about 24 years and smoking of course. Just built a curing chamber and am always looking for new things to make! Canning ,pickling, curing, smoking, you name it!
Thanks for all the help. I am very pleased with the products. I had a source I used for years that went out of business. Glad I have found you guys wish I had found you a long time ago.
@Tim-Salois Yes, brining and pickling are used in the same way even though they do not mean the same thing even though they have slightly different actual definitions.
@lamurscrappy thanks for all the help. I will let you know how the next batch turns out.
@scottwaltner i personally think we found your problem. After the ice bath you need to hang them at room temp for at least an hour. That helps to bloom the product and help set the casing as well. I think thats your issue.
