  • 1 -2 cedar planks, soaked overnight

  • 8 slices bacon, diced, fried crisp and wrapped in paper towel
  • 1/2 cup shredded old orange cheddar cheese

  5. Generously brush wedges with barbecue sauce. Sprinkle with bacon and cheese.
  6. Grill another 3-5 minutes, or until cheese has melted and the edges of skins are crispy. Remove from grill and garnish with chopped green onions.
  7. Serve immediately from the plank with additional barbecue sauce on the side.
