Cookie Dough

  • Leaving the banana in the peel, grill it over direct heat until the entire peel has turned dark and the banana is mushy. Remove from the grill and allow to cool. 
  • Add the softened stick of butter, white sugar and brown sugar to a stand mixer and cream. 
  • Then remove the banana and add it to the butter/sugar mix and allow to combine. 
  • Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Refrigerate the dough over night. 

Candied Bacon

  • Set up your cooker for indirect smoking and preheat to 250F.
  • Lay the bacon out on a cooling rack or a perforated grilling pan. 
  • Brush each strip with Amaretto, apply a healthy layer of brown sugar and dust with Meat Church Honey Hog
  • Smoke the bacon for approx 90 minutes or until cooked to your liking. 
  • Remove and allow to cool completely. 
  • Once cool, rough chop the bacon. 
  • Set aside for garnishing.


  • Combine all ingredients until smooth. 
  • Keep refrigerated until ready for use. 


  • Combine all ingredients 
  • Set aside

Preheat the frying oil to 375F. Use a vessel that will accommodate 3" deep oil. 

While the oil is preheating, roll the dough into balls. Place them on a wax paper lined cookie tray. Roll them into quarter sized balls. refrigerate for 10 minutes. 

Dip the cold cookie dough into the batter and drop into the hot oil. Fry until they are golden brown, approx 4-5 minutes. Use a strainer or spider to remove them from the hot oil. Allow them to drain on a paper towel. 

Glaze them and garnish with the chopped bacon! Serve and enjoy!!

The Best

I have tryed many brands and fogo premium is the best their is no ash and it burns forever can not believe how long it last great for a low and slow smoke

Santa delivered !

Another great bag of FOGO in a perfect pack for a pitmaster! Fueled a Christmas pork butt, New Years prime rib and 8 grilled pizzas to perfection as usual.

Great Charcoal

Good clean burn with consistent temperatures creating great flavor for your bbq. New GoTo charcoal!

Back with Fogo

I tried Cowboy at Lowe’s last time. It was slightly cheaper. However it was mostly small pieces and a lot a dust. My max temp for pizza was only 550. Fogo always gets me 650-700. Now that I’ve figured out how to get my veterans discount again, I am back for good.

Thanks Fogo team
