House Seasoning:

Parboil cabbage for 20 to 30 minutes.

Add bacon and onion to skillet and cook until just beginning to brown but remains soft; about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain bacon and onion in a strainer over a bowl and reserve the drippings.

Add barbecue sauce to the bowl with the bacon and onions. Mix together. Fill cabbage with this mixture.
