BBQ Irish Nachos combines big smoky BBQ flavors with comforting bar food; stacking pulled pork, baked beans and more on a bed of crisp waffle fries!
An Irishman and a BBQ pit master walk into a bar, and the bartender says, "Why the long face?" Errr, wait... maybe that was a horse. I think I screwed it up, let me try again.... An Irishman and a BBQ pit master walk into a bar, neither one ducked. BAM! Nailed it!
OK, that joke was a bit lame, but these BBQ Irish Nachos certainly aren't! What are Irish Nachos, you ask? Well, certainly not anything authentically Irish. Irish Nachos refer to nachos featuring waffle fries in lieu of tortilla chips, and they are often found on Irish-American bar's appetizer menus. Regardless of authenticity, they certainly make great comfort food! I'm taking this ultimate bar treat to the next level by loading it up with all my BBQ favorites!
Piled with pulled pork, BBQ beans, cheese, and more; these BBQ Irish Nachos are a meal in itself!

I typically bake my waffle fries, but if you want them to taste like authentic bar food, you may want to invest in a home deep fryer. When deep frying I'll typically use a cast iron pan on the stove, but some things, such as waffle fries, just work better in a dedicated deep fryer.
