- 4 sweet onions
- 1 package bacon
- Sriracha sauce
- Honey Hog BBQ Rub (substitute your favorite sweet BBQ rub)
- BBQ sauce
Prepare your smoker at a temperature of 250 degrees. These can also be cooked in an oven or grilled directly. However, when grilled directly, the onions are often not as tender as desired.
Slice onions into ½ slices. Pop the middles out of the slices leaving the 2 outer “rings.”
Brush the Sriracha sauce liberally on each of the onion rings.
Wrap the slices of bacon around the onion ring. It will take approximately 2-3 pieces of bacon per onion ring.
Secure the bacon to the onion ring by running a skewer completely through both sides of the onion ring.
Lightly season the outside of the onion ring with our Honey Hog BBQ rub.
Smoke or cook the onion rings for 90 minutes. You will know they are done when the bacon looks nicely cooked!
*Optional – Lightly sauce the onion rings with your favorite bbq sauce 10 minutes before you remove them from the cooker. I recommend a sweet BBQ sauce.
