Have you ever been tempted to try your hand at bacon on the grill?

However, it’s definitely easier said than done!

When grilling a bacon wrapped burger goes wrong

Doesn’t a bacon wrapped burger, stuffed with cheddar cheese, grilled to perfection sound amazing?

It looks even better according to the “oh so easy” picture by picture instructions found on pinterest for this recipe. Aspiring for wife of the year, a pinterester found and attempted this recipe. It resulted in the above photo, along with a full blown grill fire, complete with singed eyebrows.

So should we toss in the grill tongs when it come to bacon on the barbie?

***If you like to play it safe, yes. Just do bacon wrapped stuff in the oven.***

If you’re set on the adventure, here are a few tips before you get started.

  • Do not grill bacon over open flame
    • heat the grill with one burner on low and place the bacon on the opposite side, using the indirect heat to cook it.
    • if using charcoal, wait until the flames die down and cook over a hot bed of coals.
  • Grill bacon on aluminum foil or over a pan so the grease is not dripping into the grill
  • Low and Slow is the way to Go
    • high heat is not your friend in this situation
  • Use a temperature gauge to check the internal temp of the food wrapped by bacon to ensure it’s cooked.
  • Make sure it’s easy to cut off fuel supply to your grill in case of fire.

Even taking these precautions, please remember that bacon is a very fatty food. Grilling it creates a high likelihood of your food and/or grill catching on fire.  Just be careful!
