This is the BBQ Recipe that you should be making; Classic BBQ Bacon Jam. It’s my one and only all time favorite topping/side dish that goes so well with all kinds of different things. If I had to choose between all those steaks or only this side dish for the rest of my life I would choose the BBQ Bacon Jam.
Super easy to make in the kitchen/BBQ, low in price and easy to store. Classic BBQ Bacon Jam is that one thing you always want to have in stock.

  • 500 gram bacon
  • 3 red onions chopped
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 tbsp whiskey
  • 5 tbsp cane sugar


  • Fire up your Kamado Joe with a lower than usual amount of charcoal.
  • Once the charcoal is hot set a cast iron skillet over the fire.
  • Once the pan is hot as well add 500 grams of bacon strips to the pan.
  • While the bacon is rendering out in it's own fat you can start slicing 3 whole red onions and add it in the pan as well.
  • Once the onions turned soft add a tbsp of Worcestershire sauce.
  • This is optional but i like to add around 6 tbsp of whiskey to the mix and drop a bit over the pan in to the fire so you get a quick flambé. Be carefull doing this.
  • Let the alcohol burn up and add 5 tbsp of cane sugar.
  • Quick stir and when the color is turned dark red/brown your bacon jam is ready to be taken out of the pan and stored for later or eat straight away together with your meal.
