I found this recipe years ago. My first thought was that it was strange, but decided to keep it anyway. I have made this many times since and it is one of the first appetizers to go! It is simple enough for football parties or nice enough for cocktail parties. Be careful when you slice the salami so that all the slices are on the same side. The salami has a tendency to twist! Serve with crackers.

  • Partially slice the salami into 1/4-inch thick slices, making sure the cuts do not go all the way through. Place the salami into the prepared baking dish, and bake for 1 hour. Drain off the grease.

  • Mix the barbecue sauce and brown sugar together in a bowl, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Pour about 2 cups of the sauce over the salami, and retain the rest for basting. Return the salami to the oven and bake for 45 minutes more, basting occasionally with the reserved sauce. Serve on a platter with a knife so guests can cut their own slices.

I really liked this. My salami was only a pound (so I thought) so I halved the recipe. At first I liked it but thought it was a little heavy on the bbq sauce and brown sugar so I made a mental note that I would reduce those ingredients next time. It wasn't until I was cleaning up that I realized it was only an 8 oz. roll of salami. So with that being said this recipe would be perfect as written. The key is to use a bbq sauce you are familiar with like and one that is not overly sweet. My go to bbq sauce is Gates which is a Kansas City style. Read More

Maybe it's just my taste but I didn't really care for this and would not serve it to company. Not really worth the bother in my opinion. Read More
