Mancation Day One: Food

Our first day of the BBQ Mastery Class we were pretty much thrown into the fire. Our master chefs - Chris Lilly and Myron Mixon - took turns demoing the dishes we were to prepare and then set our team of seven on our way. The following are the dishes that we prepared:

Grilled Potato Salad

Fish Fry Slaw

Barbecue Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Coarse Basil Stuffing

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Livers

Grilled Chicken and Tomato Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Catfish Alfredo with Wild Rice and Orzo and Spicy Parmesan Roasted Corn

Pepper and Herb Crusted Flank Steak and Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Grilled Chops with Apple-Cranberry Maple Glaze

Grilled Fruit Skewers with Spicy Maple Cumin Glaze

Now, my strict anti-mustard and mayonnaise stance prevented me from eating everything we made, but what I did have was pretty damned good.

wrapping chicken livers in bacon is sure a waste of fine pig meat.

I'm with jasdye on this one.

Normally, I'd agree with y'all. Though I'm no fan of liver, these weren't bad (maybe it's pride because I prepared these all by my lonesome). Still, I'd probably never make them again.

The addition of bacon can make anything more palatable.
