My wife spent all week looking forward to getting to weave the bacon
I used butcher block peppered bacon
JD maple sausage
Ham and Eggs
Cheddar and deep fried potatoes.
kept the ingredients simple for the first go considering last weeks failure.
I also did a 5.5lb pork shoulder. Brown Sugar based rub. 4 hours on smoke and finished it in the oven. I'm infinitely happier with the shoulder than I am with the fatty.
Next time I think I would use a different sausage. not happy with the maple flavor. I also don't think i'd put ham in it again. there was way to much meat in it.
I followed Silverwolf636's rolling technique from his write up. i'm really glad i went this way. I've never seen the bottom or the ends in a photo. figured somehow the weave was laced on the ends and the bottom. after having done it i see that it's just mashed together. Great tutorials. thanks guys.
