I like the bacon weave as it serves two functions. First it looks good when finished, and second it helps prevent fattie blowouts. Here's how I do mine. First you'll need about pound of bacon. Try to get some that is fairly straight. Thin sliced works better then regular. Unfortunatly I could only find the regular slice. Just as with the fattie. Lay a piece of plastic wrap down on the counter then top with a piece of parchment paper. After put a piece of bacon down top to bottom to give you a guide of how big your weave is going to be. Next lay down pieces perpendicular to the first slice. Fold back every other piece and place the first piece at the top. Then fold back the pieces that were under the first piece in the opposite dircection. Put another slice of bacon down at the fold, and pull the folded bacon back over. Repeat until the weave is complete. With the weave complete get your fattie out of the fridge. ...and set it on the end of the weave. Once again start rolling up the parchment paper - a quarter of a turn at a time. You should end up with something similar to this. Take the plastic wrap and cover the fattie, twist the ends and give it a couple of spins to tighten. My wife starts to chuckle when I do this step for some reason. And it's all done - ready for the smoker. For a diagonal weave place the fattie cross-wise on the bacon. ...and wrap it the same way you would a normal weave. As Porky pig would say "That all folks". Thanks for looking. Sorry no finished product. I had to go to the store with the wife after these were made. I'll smoke them up tomorrow. Chris.
