Onion Appetizer with Blue Cheese and Bacon
Sparks BBQ in downtown Traverse City started with a passion for backyard grilling. Encouraged by family and friends’ endless compliments, owner and pitmaster Dean Sparks opened up a food truck at The Little Fleet. Serving slow smoked pulled pork, baby back ribs, and sandwiches topped with homemade coleslaw; the truck was a flaming success.
Today, barbecue lovers can also find Dean at his new brick and mortar restaurant at 439 E. Front St. Or fulfill your grill desires at home with one of Dean's favorite recipes for an onion appetizer with blue cheese and bacon.
