Pig on a Stick

Pig on a stick
Simple and delicious this is a great appetizer and/or tailgate food.


  • 2 pounds of pork loin, cut into strips, about 1” thick
  • One package of bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon of Cookies Flavor Enhancer or your favorite rub
  • 16 wooden skewers

Massage your pork loin strips with the rub and put on the skewers…..which you soaked for about 30 minutes….. right? Wrap each pork loin strip with a slice of bacon and secure with a soaked toothpick. Grill the skewers on INDIRECT heat to start off, place them on the low heat side of the grill, lid on. This is called the ‘Reverse Sear’ method. Starting off low and slow, finishing hot! Rotate the skewers a quarter turn every two to three minutes to ensure even cooking of the pork loin. Finish cooking on the hot spot of the grill, lid off, to crisp up the bacon. Serving option: Just before pulling the skewers off the grill, brush lightly with your favorite BBQ sauce.
