    Mexican themed Fatty
    1.5lbs ground beef (80/20) with taco seasoning and black pepper
    Stuffed with shredded Mexican cheese blend, onion, red pepper, jalapeño, green chiles, and more cheese :)
    Rolled in hickory smoked bacon
    Smoked in Masterbuilt electric smoker for 2.5 hrs at 230 degrees (cherry wood), then briefly in oven to crisp up bacon
    Sliced and enjoyed on a toasted hamburger bun with lettuce, salsa, & sour cream

    @redheelerdog Thanks! It was very good. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was a big hit! Now I'm anxious to try out more variations... Pizza, Greek, breakfast, etc

    Thanks everyone!!

    To make sure the bacon was thin enough to crisp up, after I made the weave I covered it with parchment paper and rolled it with a rolling pin
  9. Ya made me hungry with this one Jet. [​IMG]

    Appreciate the Q View and for myself, a novel idea on rolling the bacon weave. Will try that next time I do a weave. [​IMG]
