What's your favorite BBQ Side Dish?

By June 5, 2013

Follow me on:

I know that this is the kind of questions that can cause fights, but I thought I would throw it out there anyway. Any chef will tell you that what you server with the main dish is often as important (or sometimes more so). Of course side dishes are largely regional, but as Barbecue spreads around the world these traditions are bound to change. So imagine that you had to choose a single side and tell me what you would order when you belly up to the window to get your tray of barbecue.

MY FAVORITE BBQ SIDE DISH IS GRILLED ASPARAGUS AND BROCCOLI. PUT THEM IN A ZIPLOCK TO MARINATE IN OLIVE OIL OR COLD PRESSED GRAPE SEED OIL AND SEASON WITH YOUR CHOICE. I PREFER SOMETHING SIMILAR TO A PRIME RIB OR BRISKET RUB. BBQ OR SMOKE UNTIL IT IS COOKED TO YOUR DONE PREFERENCE.

The most requested side we get is for grilled corn. Sometimes with a compound butter. Sometimes just with EVOO and salt and pepper before grilling!

Red potatoes cut into chunks, strips, or quarters, with olive oil, salt, and pepper is our favotite.

Smoked jalapeno poppers (or Atomic Buffalo Turds “ABTs”). My wife won’t let me smoke anything without putting some of those on too. Hollowed out jalapeno filled with cream cheese, cheddar cheese and seasonings, wrapped in bacon. Sprinkle a little more rub on top and into the smoke. I’ve been cutting back on carbs for about six months, and some ribs with a low-sugar rub, and a few poppers, and I’m set.
