Ingredients

1 jar pickled watermelon rinds

1/4 cup of your favorite BBQ rub or spicy seasoning

1 lb. bacon

Simply cut your bacon strips into thirds or fourths so they will fit the watermelon rinds. Dust each watermelon rind with seasoning and then wrap each rind and secure with a toothpick. Sprinkle more rub on each bacon wrapped watermelon rind and grill on medium high heat. Preferred temperature would be 350 degrees. Grill until the bacon is browned and crispy. Watch them closely because the fat from the bacon and the sugar from the rub can cause flare-ups and burning.

The tartness of the pickled watermelon rinds makes a great combination with a sugar based BBQ rub such as Oakridge BBQ’s Secret Weapon, Plowboys BBQ Yarbird, or Fast Eddy’s All Purpose BBQ Seasoning.
