Prep meat. Cut chicken/pork into pieces that go well on skewers.
In a food processor or high-quality blender, place bacon, brown sugar, and all the spices. Pulse until completely smooth.
Rub each piece of meat with bacon paste mix. Might need to “press” it on versus trying to rub it in.
Once well-coated, thread the piece onto the skewer. When done, place skewers in fridge while grill is warming.
Blend barbecue sauce and bourbon together.
Heat grill. Place kebabs on grill; cook approx. 5 minutes per side, or until almost cooked through.
Brush the kebabs with the bourbon BBQ sauce. Cook for an additional minute per side.
Note: If serving with additional BBQ sauce, I do NOT recommend blending the bourbon into this. Only put it in the BBQ sauce that is going to be grilled. (The alcohol gets burned off)
