Yesterday was Victoria Day and that means BBQ season is officially here. Mr. C. enjoys barbequing like all men and I said let’s get out the grill and have a mini BBQ. I suggested we make cheddar Smokie hot dogs (pork sausage filled with cheese pieces scattered throughout) with coleslaw. I also did another recipe for the Chatelaine Cooking Club, and since it is the Victoria Day weekend BBQ sauce was on the menu. I can’t wait to see how this tastes.

After I uploaded my post I found out I was chossen again for the chatelaine cooking clubs pics. I also got retweeted saying “Per Combo!” from them; which was really cool. See the link.

2. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 min.

• It tastes better on the second day when the ingredients have time to marry.

Please Enjoy

My thoughts
These were quick and fast recipes and when you’re grilling you need that. The BBQ sauce was tangy sweet and spicy the perfect combination. I can’t wait to use the BBQ sauce on ribs or chicken. The coleslaw was very flavourful and accompanied the Cheddar Smokies well.
