Nephew/Smoking Apprentice Dakota and I decided we needed to try a fatty. Here is what we came up with.
We used ground turkey rather than sausage. For stuffing, red bell pepper, onion, potato, Italian five cheese mix. After laying out the turkey, I coated it with some pure maple syrup and a light dusting of rub. Dakota did the bacon weave after checking out Silverwolf's tutorial. We brought it to IT of 165. The bacon was done, but just this side of crisp, which is perfect for us.
Here's everything laid out

Oh, we did have a "learning experience" when rolling into the bacon. We decided to fry that up for a sneak peak at what it would taste like... Oh boy, we could hardly wait for it to be done.
Also, we used some hickory for smoke. I think next time, less hickory and add some maple. The maple syrup gave a hint of sweet which gave this an incredible taste.
Thanx for looking!
