Recipe Type- Poultry- spicy, tasty poultry

Skill Level- Intermediate

Grill Time- ½ hour- 45 minutes

Method- Indirect Grilling

# Of servings- 2-3


FOGO Premium Charcoal - The First Ingredient

1 Lb.  Ground Chicken

3 TBSP Butter, softened

½ Cup Hot Sauce

1-2 Onions

1 Package thin sliced bacon

1 Container of Blue Cheese Crumbles

Blue Cheese dressing


  1. Fill your grill with FOGO and prepare it for indirect cooking at 300-350°
  2.  Cut the ends off of the onions and remove the peel.  Carefully remove the 2 outer rings of the onion and keep them together and intact.
  3. Combine the ground chicken, as much or little hot sauce as your taste can handle, 3 tbsp of butter and mix thoroughly.
  4. Fill each onion half with the chicken mix.  Use two fingers to make a hole in the middle of the chicken mix and fill it with blue cheese crumbles.  Press the two halves together.  Continue with more onion peels until you have no more chicken mixture left.
  5. Lay 2 pieces of bacon down on your work surface in a crisscross X pattern.  Place the Buffallonion bomb in the center and wrap the bacon up the onion, making sure to cover the seam with the bacon.  Use toothpicks to secure the bacon at the top. 
  6. Place the bombs on the grill and cook until the bacon is just starting to get crispy.  Pour some extra hot sauce over the top and continue cooking until the bacon is crispy.  The internal temperature should be at least 165° to ensure that the chicken is fully cooked.
  7. Remove them from the grill and allow them to cool for a minute or two.  Slice the onions in half and pour some blue cheese dressing over them.  Cut into bite sized pieces and devour these tasty and spicy treats!
