Last minute decision to do up some Bleus for last nights dinner. Took 2 hours at 250 in the ECB. Came out better than I expected but had some cheese loss.Very tasty and VERY filling.

Thick cut sugar cure bacon wrap with a light dusting of rub--glad I used foil, lots of drippings developed



After 2 hours at 175 internal



Thanks for looking and all the ideas from members...Willie

Dang Willie you beat me to it. I've got 6 of those bad boy about to go on right now. Hope mine turn out as good as yours! I think I overstuffed them so I'm sure I'll have some kind of cheese explosion.

I guess the Cordon Bleu is going around. Well you have done a fabulous job there Chef Willie. I have made them a couple of times since I posted them a couple of weeks ago. Because they are that good.

Hah...'great minds think alike' comes to mind. I'm sure they'll turn out great due to your experience level <grin>. I really didn't think I overstuffed them but the cheese was a processed swiss I had in the fridge and just couldn't take the heat for that long. Will have to look into some of that hi-temp cheese I've been seeing in some of the posts. I hoped the bacon would contain the flow but most oozed out like lava. The breasts were'nt all that large either, 4 ounce size, so I didn't get as big of a cutlet out of them. I suppose I could have laid a piece of cheese over the top of the bacon the last few minutes of cooking...may try that next time. Enjoy your dinner. Waiting for the Q-view of yours....Willie
