  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 medium white onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 oz bag barbecue potato chips

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • In a small pan, heat the oil and cook the onion on medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic, stirring constantly, and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Crush the potato chips in the bag until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  • In a small bowl, combine the onion mixture, ketchup, tomato paste, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Set aside ¼ cup of this mixture.
  • In a large bowl, add the meat, potato chips, BBQ Rub, and sauce and mix well until thoroughly incorporated. On a foil-lined baking sheet, form the meat into a 12-inch loaf. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Preheat your smoker to 250 °F with three chunks of hickory wood.
