    I am working on a quote for a baby shower. They are requesting BBQ, (our specialty) but we have not done strictly appetizers before and how would we incorporate that into appetizers? Cubed, grilled pork loin/grilled pineapple kabobs? cocktail dogs in homemade BBQ sauce IE pigs in blanket? That's all I can think of! TIA!

    I like the idea of chicken instead of pork for the skewers. Also, (duh) why didn't I think of pulled pork sliders?! I too, remember the bbq bacon,shrimp and water chestnut thingys. Thank you for your reply and ideas!! I make a great pimento cheese, thinking cucumber rounds filled with that as well. Not BBQ though....

    I don't usually post here, but I thought Pete's BBQ pizza that appeared in the "eat more pizza" thread might be applicable - use a sheet pan/ cut into app squares. Pizza might go over well at a baby shower.

    Atomic Buffalo Turds - Jalapenos stuffed w cream cheese. Wrap with bacon hit it with dry rub, int not the smoker. Sauce/glaze at the end.

    Moink balls- plain old pre cooked frozen italian meatballs from costco. Thaw enough to get a toothpick through. Wrap in bacon, dry rub, smoke till bacon is done, sauce or glaze

    Cut onions into rings, spiral bacon around it. Smoke, make a glaze with sriracha and btw sauce you need to doctor it a bit with more sugar

    Buffalo chicken dip, slider station with mini hot dogs, burgers, veggie burgers and bbq chicken on mini brioche buns, bruschetta, kiebasa skewers, mac & cheese in frico cups, caprese skewers, hoagie dip, deviled eggs, hummus with grilled pita wedges, veg & cheese crudite, grilled shrimp with tequila mayo. We also specialize in bbq/picnic events and all of these go over well. Gina

    Hi,

    You could make some mince lamb/chicken kebabs on skewers, mini sliders of chicken, chicken tikka on the bbq, fish and prawn cakes would be good aswell. Just try and mix it up a little

    Poppers, abts ( as mentioned before) also pig candy. It is a small slice of smoked sausage warped with half a slice of slab bacon making a cup. Then top with brown sugar and smoked until bacon is cooked. The fat from the sausage and bacon mix with the sugar to make a sauce. It has been a big hit for stuff I have done.
