Yet another first time fattie

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My first attempt at a weave




Nothing fancy here




Just about done




All done! Took about 2 hours 45 minutes to get to 167 IT



I finished it off in the oven cuz I was not real happy with how limp and raw the bacon seemed on the inside. Paranoid maybe?

It looks good. You didn't say what smoker or temp you were smoking this at. A smoker and your oven are just a heat source. So anything you can cook in the oven you can cook in a smoker as long as the smoker will get as hot as the oven.

Happy smoken.

Sorry about that. I hit 225* at the grate on my Brinkmann offset. Smoked for 2 hours 45 minutes using Kingsford 100% natural "lump" briquettes and a chunk of pecan every now and then. Pulled it at an IT of 167*, rested for 15 minutes. Outside was pretty crispy and there is a nice smoke ring but the bacon on the inside was still limp so I put it in the oven for about 20 minutes at 350*. For my first one it turned out very tasty. My 12 year old picky eater son said it was the best thing I've ever cooked.

That is a righteous looking fatty. Awesome job. Don't worry, the bacon weave gets easier every time you do it. After about three of them, it becomes second nature.

I had to find a youtube vid on the weave. Lol. It really was pretty easy. I found I did not have any ziptop bags to roll the sausage in so I rolled it while it was on the weave. It moved around a bit but not enough to do any harm. Next time I'll try different fillings. The sky is the limit.
