  1. If low and slow is to break down the meat so it is tender and a fattie needs no breaking down how hot can i go? I will be wraping 1 in bacon an 1 not. They are going to be for a party on sat. and I want to cook them before the party so they are still hot for the guest. I also want the bacon to be nice and crispy. when i cook them at low temps the bacon never seems to get crispy.
  2. fire it up

    Not sure exactly how hot would be safe for them.
    If I had to guess though I would say even as high as 327 would be fine.
  3. I have always done mine around 300 bacon comes out crispy and good but I am new too some one will be along with better advice I am sure

    OK Fire...

    How in the heck did you come up with that? You crack me up, and those guys gave you a pass on it! [​IMG] Did you know that 83% of statistics are made up on the spot?!?

    I was going to say that 314.159265° would be the best number! (100 X PI)???

    Seriously, low 300's and you will be fine! My $.02
