So, Will it BBQ?
Absolutely this will BBQ, as Ali said, 10 out of 10, would do again! The Bacon in the batter really took this over the top and made it wonderful, it might not have had as much of a smoky flavor as we were hoping but it was all around delicious!

My wonderful wife made a Costco run today so I could come up with something to compliment the farm fresh corn that was delivered by a Mello Farms family member.
She came home with boneless rib steaks…
All Things Bar-B-Que, the Bar-B-Que shop here in Wichita, Kansas (allthingsbarbque.com) has a chef that today made I thought the most wasteful burger going! He ground up an entire brisket!!! and made burger out of it. It was a lesser choice level, but stillll!! It did look great. Check out:
This might be an inspiration, too.
By the way; CONGRATULATIONS!! I know how hard the Keto diet is, but to surpass your goal is totally awesome!!
@rhjbarney @Dave-R @craigrice I see where you’re going with this. I guess I’m to the point I’ve spent $100 on the small mixer, $200 on the larger mixer, now another $100-$200 on this…This is where I cut my losses and just get the 50lb meat mixer. I know it’s not cheap but i’m tired of getting so far in just to come to the reality I should have spent the money in the first place… I feel like I’m hovering between the hobby doing 5 or 10 pounds and a pro shop since were doing well over 600# of stuff a year at this point.
