Ingredients

For the rings

  • 2 large Vidalia onions
  • Sriracha sauce
  • 8 slices good bacon

For the dipping sauce

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • Sriracha sauce to taste
  • 1/2 fresh lime juiced
  • Splash of milk

Instructions

  • Fire up your grill for indirect cooking, around 300-350 degrees F. These will take about 30 minutes, but maybe as long as an hour to cook depending on your grill temperature.
  • Cut the onions into 1/2" rings.
  • Push out the inner rings, leaving the last two outer rings still together as one. Do not separate them.
  • Squeeze some Sriracha into a bowl that's just big enough to fit an onion ring.
  • Place the ring into the sauce. Using your fingers, spread the sauce all over the ring. Flip the onion and repeat. Get it coated, but not drenched.
  • Wrap bacon around the rings. Don't wrap too tightly since the bacon will shrink. Don't wrap it too loose or it'll fall off.
  • Brush (or just use your fingers) more Sriracha on the outside of the bacon.
  • Place the rings on your grill over indirect heat.
  • Grill the rings until the bacon just starts to crisp. Gently flip them (I used a grill spatula) and cook another 10-15 minutes. Remove to a baking sheet and let firm up a bit.
  • Serve with dipping sauce.

For the dipping sauce

  • Whisk together all ingredients except the milk.
  • If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of milk, whisk, and add more as needed if it is still too thick.
