Barbara F. Watson

Grilling isn’t just for the summer season. Take your grill out of hibernation and start prepping it for the cold weather. Don’ forget to dress warmly and practice some safety precautions as grilling during the winter season is different from grilling during any other time of the year.

Here are 3 delicious barbecue dishes that you can grill during the winter season:

Maple Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Carrots

What you need:

  • 1 kilogram carrots, scrubbed and peeled
  • 1/2 kilogram bacon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Combine maple syrup and Dijon mustard in a small bowl and set aside. Wrap each carrot with bacon, securing with a toothpick. Arrange bacon-wrapped carrots on a grill pan then cook on a pre-heated grill over medium heat, turning once, for 15 to 20 minutes or until bacon is cooked through and carrots are tender. Brush with maple-mustard mixture halfway through and right before removing from the grill. Serve immediately.

Grilled Sour Cream and BBQ Chicken Nachos

What you need:

  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups finely grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup tortilla chips
  • 1 cup cooked chicken meat
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Heavy duty aluminium foil

Toss cooked chicken with 1/4 cup barbecue sauce and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine remaining barbecue sauce and sour cream. Crimp the sides of the foil to make a “boat”. Arrange tortilla chips at the bottom followed by 1 3/4 cups cheese. Top with saucy chicken. Sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese on top of chicken. Seal foil and cook on a pre-heated grill over high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or when cheese has melted. Allow a few minutes to cool. Then add avocado, onion, tomato, jalapeno and cilantro. Drizzle sour cream mixture over nachos. Serve immediately.

Grilled Potato Volcanoes

What you need:

  • 2 large potatoes, scrubbed and partially cooked
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 4 slices smoked turkey deli meat, sliced into squares
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons diced onions
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce

In a small bowl, combine sour cream and hot sauce. Refrigerate until potatoes are ready to be served. Slice off 1/4-inch from the bottom of each potato to allow it to stand while cooking. Using an apple corer, remove the middle of the potatoes, leaving 1 inch from the base. Wrap each potato with 2 slices of bacon each. Fill each potato with layers of deli meat and cheddar cheese. Cook on a pre-heated grill until potatoes are tender. To serve, remove toothpicks then pour sour cream mixture over it. Top with onions.
