BBQ Stuffed Potatoes

Previously I've written about Big Bob Gibson's barbeque on this blog.  It is a local restaurant here in my town, but you may have seen them on shows like Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, and The Today Show.  Or you may have seen their book: Big Bob Gibson's BBQ Book: Recipes and Secrets from a Legendary Barbecue Joint

Anyway, we go to their restaurant about once a month for one of their famous Barbeque Stuffed Potatoes (like the one pictured above).  These things are so good!  And they're huge! (I've never been able to eat a whole one in one sitting.) They're so great that my husband says that people shouldn't come to this area without trying it out.

I also attempt to make my own BBQ potatoes from time to time, although mine aren't nearly as good as Big Bob's. But still, it's a good alternative when you can't have the real thing. So if you ever have any pulled pork, beef, chicken, or turkey on hand, you should give this a try!

How to Make BBQ Stuffed Potatoes:

Ingredients:
Baking Potatoes
Butter/Margarine
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Sour Cream
Bacon Bits
Chives
Meat Choice, shredded (Pulled Pork, Chicken, Turkey, or Roast Beef)

Directions:  Cook your meat choice in a crock pot. (I usually just cook it in a little Dale's Sauce (& water of course).  And I know sometimes my dad just seasons with salt/pepper and adds a little Coke.) You can also cook in a smoker if you have one, which would actually taste better and be more authentic.

Wrap your potatoes in foil and bake in the oven till done.  When done, pull back foil and cut potato down the middle. Add your butter, followed by your sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, and chives.  Finally top with your cooked meat. 

You also top your potato with barbeque sauce if you wish. We buy Big Bob's red sauce, which is on sale at their website, and that's what my husband puts on his potatoes. (I eat mine "plain", although I do love their white sauce on grilled chicken!)
