    I am going to be makeing ABT's tonight for smoking tomorrow. I read the sticky and it said to use barley cooked bacon, is that really needed? Thanks in advance

    No.. I just use thin bacon and it comes out crispy everytime.. You can also put it under the broiler at the end to crisp it up.Happy smokes[​IMG]

    I use the cheapest thinest bacon I can find for ABT's and I don't cook it at all before going into the smoker

    I'm with mike and Jerry on this one. I use the thinnest cheapest bacon on all my Abt's for you would taste it very much for the japs are overpowering and then the stuffing helps out to.

    I like my bacon really crisp on anything I put it on so I usually end up slammin whatever I wrap in bacon under the broiler on high for just a few minutes. Works great and does it quick enough that it doesn't effect whatever I've smoked.
