How to make:

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: 45 minutes


Prepare a BBQ for indirect grilling and heat it to a temperature of 160°C. Place the skillet on the BBQ and heat it thoroughly.

Fry the bacon in the skillet until it’s crispy, then remove it from the pan. Sauté the red onion and ground beef briefly in the bacon fat and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dip ingredients thoroughly. Crumble the crispy bacon and add 2/3 of it to the ground beef mixture.

Add the soaked wood chips to the hot coals, then add the mixed ingredients to the ground beef in the skillet, stirring well. Let it cook for another 30-40 minutes on the BBQ.
