Just because you’re on the road for many days in a row, doesn’t mean you can’t eat well. By cooking in your truck you can take control of what goes into your meal. You will also save money by not eating in restaurants. The benefit is you are not dependent on truck stops for your meals.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Kabobs | Bison Driver Lionel Fortin
(Prep. time 1 hour)
1 lb. thick cut bacon (cut in half)
20 or 30 raw shrimp shelled, and tail removed
1 green or red pepper, cut in 1-inch pieces
1 pack mini farmer sausage (sliced)
1 small sirloin steak cut into 1-inch cubes
1 pack bamboo skewers, soaked in water about hour to prevent burning
Method: Take 1 shrimp, wrap with half a slice of bacon and put on skewer. Alternate tomatoes, peppers, farmer sausage, steak on skewer. Grill on BBQ, add BBQ sauce near end of cooking, when bacon is cooked, they are ready. The bacon prevents shrimp from over cooking and burning.
