Your weaves amaze me, the fattie looks great also.icon_smile.gif Someday I'll get around to making one of those piston things, I'm thinking hydraulics of some sort. icon_cool.gif

Incredible looking fattie. I'm going to have to give this thing a try soon. I keep putting it off, but I don't think I can keep holding out.

Thanks for the kind comments and points everybody! cool.gifPDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

I have pictures of how I do a bacon weave.. I'll see if I can find them.

Meateater.. I like the sound of your hydraulic version... keep me posted if you make one. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

I made my piston using schedule 40 or potable water rated pvc.
The larger piece has a 2" inside diameter and is about 8" long.
The "Piston" rod is 1" pvc and it's 11" long.
I put a cap on one end of the rod to fit the palm of my hand and cut a disc from some heavy plastic for the other end.

It's not fancy but fun to use....

here is an older post using the piston.

The originator of the piston idea (Grillinski) has set up a web site to sell his piston if you don't want to make one...

It's made a bit different than mine but looks like it works fine.

Thanks again friends, the fattie was tasty!

Thanks Terry! cool.gifPDT_Armataz_01_22.gif

I'm a stickler for crisp bacon.. the pictures probably make it look crisper than it is but during the last part of my smoke, I kick the heat up... and try to get the bacon as crisp as possible. It's not as easy in my horizontal wood burner, but I move the fattie close to my fire box where it's hotter and rotate it.
It's easier for me to get it crisp in my drum.

I'm not a fan of limpy bacon. PDT_Armataz_01_27.gifbiggrin.gif

It didn't matter much anyway.. the creamy gravy sort of took care of most of the crispyness (is that a word?) lol

Thanks again Terry!!

If I might interject, for the Fattie Piston. Just whipped out 6 of them for a get-together tomorrow. Mine are similar: Schedule 40 Water PVC, 2" -8" in length, Substitute 1 1/4" Schedule 40 PVC - 11" in length (instead of 1" PVC pipe). Glue two 1 1/4" CAPS on the ends of the 1 1/4" piece.

You'll see that the 1 1/4" piece just slides through the 2". I used schedule 40 because I like beefy tools. You'll have to drive over the piston to damage or break it. Unlikely, but if there's a little too much slop on the piston end, wrap a couple layers of saran wrap over it.

While the caps are slightly rounded on the ends, when you push your Fattie material out, you'll be fussing with the ends of the Fattie anyway.

Be sure that the glue you use is something similar to Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue, PVC Pipe Cement. Must be suitable for Potable PVC PIPE.

Final credit however goes upchannel to cowgirl for introducing the idea to us.

Thanks RdK, Doug, Dave and Tom! biggrin.gif
Dave is right, you can make the piston any size you like and cut extra tubes to chill more filling at the same time.
