17 Holiday Dessert Recipes That Prove Everything is Better with Bacon
They say that everything is better with bacon and here at Pig of the Month BBQ, y'all know we are inclined to agree with them. ESPECIALLY when it comes to desserts with bacon. That salty, savory taste of bacon goes so perfectly with everything from apples to chocolate, caramel to maple - it's a insane party of flavor that we will stuff our faces with all day, erry day! Now that Thanksgiving is all wrapped up (and we are still a little sad that the leftovers didn't last longer...), it's time to hit that holiday baking and treat making... HARD. We are rounding up all the things that are topping our wishlist to make this holiday season, and a few that we're planning to make for a second (ok more like tenth) time. You really can't argue with a classic like Bacon Bourbon Caramel Stuffed Brownies, you know? So whip out the apron and turn that oven on. It's time to get into that sweater body with alllll the bacon-packed desserts. You can save hitting the gym for your New Year's resolution... ;)

15 Fall Cocktails to Keep Your Tailgating Spirits High (and Extra Boozy)
The first week of football is wrapping up and we couldn't be more excited. We are sad to see the end of summer so clearly, but all that football and tailgating amazingness in front of us is comforting our souls hardcore right about now. You know we are allllll about that tailgating food, but we also want to make sure we have the drinks part covered for y'all too. What's a tailgate party without some booze anyway? So we're bringing you these 15 fall cocktails to keep your tailgating spirits high (and extra boozy). These cocktails have all that apple and pumpkin goodness you start craving the moment September 1st rolls around, plus some extra odds and ends cocktails to give you a break once you start wearing yourself on everything apple and pumpkin. One of our favorite manly drinks below (pictured above) is Smoked Bourbon with Candied Bacon. Our smokers are running well into fall, low and slow, so we take advantage of that smoke by bottling it up with some bourbon. Top it with a slice of candied bacon and all the dudes out there basically melt as soon as they see it. It's also the perfect consolation prize if someone's team loses. As long as you give them one of these, you can mock them all you want.

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash
You all know we LOVE to get our grill on in the summer. There's only a few precious month's of grilling and boozing to make the most of before the cold weather sets in. As much as we still love those fall months (can you say 'tailgating heaven'?), we kind of wish we could grill all year round.
So when those warm temps hit, it's all about grilling all the things. We grill our meats, our veggies, our desserts and now, even our cocktails. Grilled pineapple is already one of our fav summer treats, so why not throw it in with some bourbon so you have something delicious to sip on while you're working hard over that hot grill? There's no reason not to, obviously.
These bourbon smash cocktails are packed with grilled pineapple so they are almost like a sangria with all that chunky fruit in there. Of course, instead of wine there's a ton o' bourbon - right up our alley for cocktail hour. Keeping those summer vibes going and working our grills as hard as possible is all we BBQ-loving peeps know how to do, after all. Cheers to the summer!
INSTRUCTIONS: In the bottom of a double old fashioned glass, muddle grilled pineapple with lime juice.
Pour in bourbon and stir. Fill glass with crushed ice and top with soda water. Stir once more to combine. Serve.

Bacon Bourbon Caramel Stuffed Brownies
Bacon Bourbon Caramel Stuffed Brownies are an indulgent, decadent dessert that combines our love of bacon, chocolate, caramel and BOOZE.
When we go for dessert, we go big. Real big. Like, Super Bowl big.
These bacon bourbon caramel stuffed brownies are the latest food porn creation that we absolutely can't get enough of. If you thought brownies couldn't get any better, well you're just plan wrong. We stuffed ours with a rich, creamy bourbon caramel and lots of our top selling bacon to really send it over the edge.
It's sweet, it's savory and it's so gooey and decadent, you might just faint after the first bite. If you really want to bring your A-game to your next party, picnic or to spoil your significant other, this is the ultimate recipe to bust out. Everyone will be freaking the hell out the moment you set these out. Then just sit back and watch as everyone clammers to get another one before they're all gone.
Chocoholics, bacon-lovers, bourbon-obsessed fans and caramel-cravers UNITE. This is the only dessert you need to make for the rest of your darn life. For real.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with nonstick spray & line with parchment paper.
Make brownie batter according to the instructions on the package. Pour half the batter into the baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes.
Combine caramels, cream and bourbon in medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until smooth and creamy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Pour in caramel then add layer of chopped bacon, reserving 1/4 of the chopped bacon for later.
Top with the rest of brownie batter and sprinkle with remaining bacon. Bake for 20 more minutes and cool completely before cutting.
