Bacon Wrapped Pork Skewers

They say, everything is better with bacon, and yes that is so true!!  Had some left over pork loin in the fridge and decided to grill some sweet and spicy bacon wrapped pork skewers for a quick and easy dinner.

How to prep the pork loin

Start by cutting the pork loin into strips and then cube into even bite size pieces. It’s important to get the cubes roughly the same size so the pork cooks evenly.

Next, in a bowl, season the pork with Hardcore Carnivore Sweet BBQ Rub, drizzle some olive oil and mix together.

How to prep the skewers

Start off by cutting off the ends of the bacon strips and use the middle meaty piece to wrap around each pork cube. Skewer through the bacon to help it fold together while cooking.

Time to grill the skewers

Heat up the grill to 350 degrees indirect heat and cook the skewers for 20 minutes.

Next, take some spicy BBQ sauce of your preference, I used Tabasco Habanero Jerk BBQ Sauce and glaze the skewers while still on the grill. Let it cook for a few more minutes until the sauce caramelizes.

Remove off the grill and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.  It’s important to always rest your meat after grilling.  This allows for everything to relax and redistribute the juices, which creates a more tender, juicier cut.

Finally, you can remove the skewers or eat the bacon wrapped pork skewers right off the stick!  Enjoy!
