There are very few things about summer that bring me joy; apart from the summer casino promotions. You’re probably reading this and thinking, “is he crazy?”. Most people think summer is the best time of the year, but I’ve never been a fan of hot and humid weather. When I was a kid, fall was always my favorite season, with a sprinkle of spring. I’ll admit though, the best part of the summer besides my daughter being out of school has to be grilling out. Whether it’s hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, steaks, or fish, I’m throwing it on the grill. Throughout the summer we rarely touch the oven because grilled food is healthier, and it just tastes better. We love trying new recipes and everyone loves Manwich, so their new Bourbon BBQ flavor is on our menu.
The sweet and tangy taste of Manwich has made it the #1 Sloppy Joe sauce since it was established in the 1960’s. With the Bourbon BBQ, it kicks that Manwich signature tangy taste up a few notches. With only 35 calories per serving, this isn’t bad for you either. Just like the original Manwich, all you need to do is add the meat, heat and you’re done. For today, I wanted to try it with some steak off the grill and BBQ ribs in the crock pot. With the pork ribs, I tend to cook them around 8.5 hours. The first 4.5 hours on low and the final four on high. When preparing my steaks, I’ll chill on the patio while they cook and enjoy a snack. Slim Jim has always been one of my favorite snacks, and now they make Slim Jim Premium Smoked Sticks in two flavors.
The Smokehouse Original stick contains brown sugar and soy sauce, making for a sweet and savory experience with a hint of spice. The other is the Thai Style Chili flavored stick, which contains Sweet chili, garlic and a touch of spicy red peppers. Each stick is made with 100% grass-fed beef or 100% premium pork, and are always raised without hormones. There are no artificial colors or flavors used and no added MSG. Each serving contains at least 10 grams of protein. Slim Jim Premium Smoked Sticks are slow-cooked for over 14 hours and seasoned with the perfect balance of herbs, spices, and peppers to deliver an elevated flavor experience. These Slim Jim sticks are also less greasy and just as easy and convenient to eat.
