Bacon weave issues

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I have done many fatties since learing about them here.  Everytime, I have an issue with the weave and wrapping the ends of the fattie. The ends are loose and do not form around the ends.  Does anyone have any tips on how to correct this?  I'm not sure if I'm using too much bacon.  Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!  Looks like I may be using too much bacon when I lay out my weave. I appreciate the info!

I have seen some posts where the fatty is rolled 45⁰ to the bacon weave.

I tried it once but it bunched up and looked bad.

Does anyone have any tips on how to roll a fatty 45⁰ to the bacon weave and have a nice smooth looking weave?

The key to have a nice tightly rolled fattie is when you wrap it in the sausage wrap it tight in saran wrap & twist the ends spinning it in your hands. Then when you wrap that in the bacon weave do the same, refrigerate for an hour or so. It will pull the ends in tight & the bacon will stay tight against the fattie when you take it out. There are several tutorials here on rolling one, just go to the search box & type in "fattie".

Thanks Al.  I am able to get the fattie tightly rolled.  And I also do the refrigerate to help firm everything up.  Even with the plastic wrap, the weave still doesn't seem right.  Maybe I'm to much of a perfectionist.  Maybe it's the beverages I consume too!  I'll definitely take a look at the tutorials again and maybe slow down too!

Don't get too close to the edge of your sausage with the fillings, then the totsie-roll twist in saran wrap should tighten it right up on the ends.

 

Don't forget the qview, so we can see how you are doing it now, and you can get more specific advice.

 I use the plastic to help roll the fattie, I tuck as I roll...  http://cowgirlscountry.blogspot.com/2010/02/bacon-weave.html   Also start making my weave in the center, it keeps the weave tighter.PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Thanks Cowgirl, you make it look simple.

I use the plastic to help roll the fatty also, but when I try to roll the fatty diagonally in the bacon weave I haven’t been able to roll it smoothly.

The bacon always seems to bunch and clump up

I drink there for I weave or is it I weave there for I drink?

I better pop open a beer and think about this
