4 large yellow or Vidialia onions
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Thick Sliced Bacon
Several ounces of Gruyere cheese cut into small blocks
2-3 tablespoons of chopped flat leaf parsley
3/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup whiskey
1/2 tbsp montreal steak seasoning
1/2 tsp dried thyme
(Combine all ingredients, mix up and set aside)
Preheat your grill to 250° and set up for indirect cooking with a couple wood chunks for smoke.
Slice a flat spot off the bottom of each onion so they will sit flat. Slice about 1" off the top of each onion and remove the outer skin layer. Wiht a spoon, scoop out a small hole in the center of each onion. Rub the onions down with extra virgin olive oil. Wrap bacon around the outside of each onion and secure in in place with toothpicks. Sprinkle Montreal Steak Seasoning on the outside of the onions. Spoon in a couple tablespoons of the baste into the center of each onion.
Place the onions on the grill for 2 hours, basting every 30 minutes with the basting sauce.
With 15 minutes to go in the cook, add the cheese and parsley to the top of the onions...
When they are done, serve and ENJOY!
