SMOKIN' CHERRY BOMBS - These bacon-wrapped, whiskey-soaked, maraschino cherries and smoked hot Italian sausage explode with flavor and grilling makes them a great tasting barbecue appetizer. Soaking the cherries in a bourbon for a good week gives them the perfect flavor punch. The cooking process dissipates the alcohol, but the flavor stays and fuses perfectly with the cherries, bacon, and smoky sausage.
