BACON WRAPPED "PIG WINGS"
Who says pigs can’t fly? Take a few boneless pork chops, add some bacon and a little creativity, and pig wings are on the menu! The bacon adds great flavor and keeps the loin meat from getting dry. These look great and are a little unusual, so they make a fabulous smoked appetizer with barbecue sauce for dipping. The kids will love them! – Ray Lampe, Dr. BBQ, Slow Fire
