Fattie wrap or not?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've been making jimmy dean breakfast fatties as well as ground beef burger fatties but I haven't bacon wrapped any of them because I wanted to make sure my sausage or ground beef had that smoky goodness to it. I notice alot of you bacon wrap/weave your fatties. Does the bacon wrap/weave affect the smokes ability to penetrate into the actual meat of the fattie? 


Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

It does affect the smoke penetration. Lately I have been making fatties without the bacon & we like them better.

I never did a full weave, just opting to lay the bacon across the top of the fatty. Got plenty of smoke this way.

Thanks for the replies. Maybe I'll try the bacon on top.

Craig is right, no rules here other than those that involve food safety. My basic rule is that whatever my family, my guests and I like is the way to go.  Besides, experimenting is half the fun.


Good luck and good smoking.
