Down South BBQ: Big Ol' Mess Recipe

A sweet and spicy dish you will be sure to add to your bbq Table every time. Big Ol' Mess recipe.

This recipe is dedicated to those of us who are messy cooks. When I watch reality cooking shows on tv, I am often fascinated not just by the level of cooking, but at the plating. I was never taught how to plate and have always wanted to take a class-(Though I am not sure if they have those). With this recipe, you do not have to worry about plating, nor do you need to worry about making the ingredients perfect. It is exactly what it is named A big Ol' Mess.

A big ol' mess of sausage, bell pepper, onion and jalapeno drenched in sweet and sour sauce heaped over white rice. The only thing missing is a side of shrimp or a big Alaskan king crab and a cold beer. The name makes you want to roll up your sleeves and dig into what will be one of the messiest, but most delicious bbq sides you have eaten in your life.:

A No fuss BBQ Recipe is the best way to go!

Why do I love it? Not only is it delicious, it is quick and easy to make. It is also foolproof. You can't overcook it. The flavors work together to make it an excellent dish. This recipe is great for Summertime but can be cooked whenever.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
