Uncle Al's Burnt Kielbasa
Dad started taking this dish exclusively to the tailgate in the 1970s. I once told him that the kielbasa might have been called burnt in the 70s, but in the 80s it was blackened and in the 90s it was caramelized. Now that weve entered the 21st Century, I suppose were back to burnt.
The recipe is simple but the actual charring of the links is critical to achieving the true experience.
Hillshire Farm Kielbasa
Grill the Kielbasa (on charcoal or propane) until charred on all sides. Remove from grill. If grilling at the game, transfer to dish. If not grilling at the game, wrap in aluminum foil and leave in warming oven until leaving for game.
Cut into pieces approximately 1 1-½ inches & stick with toothpicks. Serve alongside dipping mustard. Also yummy when dipped in Chucks Cheese sauce (as are most things).
The "beverage" is an vital part of the tailgating experience.
