Liver Bacon Snacks

The Liver that I transformed into a super delicious dish in this recipe comes from something special and that’s also the main reason I'm doing this BBQ Liver Recipe. I had my own 2 lambs on my stretch of land for a while and when I brought them to the butcher I had a giant pile of meat stored from these 2 lambs. I absolutely enjoyed the process but I've learned from this a great deal of respect for the cattle that you are raising so I want to reflect that kind of respect for the animals back into my recipes. These livers are a less popular cut of meat in the western world but I want to use absolutely everything from the animals that I’m raising so I came up with this recipe.
Beautiful liver bacon snacks, brined,smoked and grilled to perfection and strapped in bacon and cheese. The ultimate Barbecue Snack.
