Bacon Wrapped Brie


Slicing open a piping hot wheel of brie cheese in front of your guests, may be one of the most epic ways to establish your barbecue brilliance.

This recipe is perfect as an appetizer, or even just when you want something to munch on while you are smoking.

What you will need

  • 1 round of Brie cheese
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • ½ cup Pigasus Rub
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • Drizzle of honey


1. Lay your bacon over your board and season liberally with the pigasus rub on both sides.

2. Take the round of Brie and tightly wrap with the pieces of bacon, making sure that all the cheese is covered.

3.For the best coverage, hold one end of the bacon in the centre and loop the bacon over until it meets in the centre of the brie, where you started. Continuing doing this with the remainder of the bacon, until the full round is covered.

4. Hold the bacon in place with the rosemary sprig, by piercing it through the centre, where the bacon ends meet.

5. Preheat your smoker to 225F and add a chunk of your favorite fruit wood.

6. Smoke until the bacon is beginning to crisp and the cheese is nice and soft when gently pressed.

7. To serve, cut the cheese in half and serve with crackers or similar. Pour a liberal drizzle of honey across the melting cheese. Alternatively, add some extra flavor with your favorite chilli pepper jelly or candied jalapenos.

Smoked Turkey and Leek Pie

If you aren't overly familiar with leeks, they are kind of like a combination between onions and cabbage. It's sweet like fried cabbage, but has a very subtle oniony flavor. This dish pairs the leek with poultry for a subtle umami flavor and bacon for that hit of salty, fattiness that makes it pop. Wrap that all up in crispy pastry-You are in business!
