  • 2 lbs kielbasa or sausage sliced into ½ - 1” portions
  • 2 red peppers stemmed seeded and cut into ½” pieces
  • 2 yellow peppers stemmed seeded and cut into ½” pieces
  • 1 onion quartered and divided into pieces
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup thick barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne


  • Prep your grill for indirect heat. Clean and oil the grates.
  • Meanwhile, using heat safe skewers, build the kabobs, alternating between peppers, onions, and sausage slices.
  • When ready to grill, add dry woodchips to your coals and place the skewers over the cooler side of the grill.
  • Close the lid and allow the smoke to work it’s magic.
  • Cook, flipping as needed, without opening the lid too much, until the veggies are tender and the sausage is 160 degrees with a digital thermometer and has grill marks.
  • Meanwhile, in a cast iron or heat proof sauce pan, whisk the honey, barbecue sauce, bourbon and cayenne together. Allow to simmer over the heat, stirring as needed until thickened.
  • Carefully remove the kabobs from the heat and arrange on a serving platter.
  • Either drizzle the honey barbecue sauce over top or serve individually.
  • Garnish with parsley if desired.
