Ok have them started.

Using mild Italian.

Push the manicotti shell into the meat, leave enough space in the middle for the cheese. Turn past over and fill the other end. .......

Note the ends are at an angle. I tried 3 different ways to make the ends flat but all 3 broke.....no biggie.
You can see the cheese in the middle.

Wrap a thin slice bacon around shell.

I ran out of thin and use 1 thick slice.

Apply your fav sauce and rub to the bacon.

Going on the kettle with the SnS with water in the cut.
2-2.5 Hours around 250-275 if you can.

Man that is looking good! I'm guessing the noodles cook from the grease in the meat?

I was wondering the same thing about how the noodles were going to cook. Look forward to seeing how they turn out!

So far so good. 5 of us ate all but 5.

What i would do different next time is wrap the bacon over the ends. Some of the exposed noodle got real crispy. And for me reduce the cheese.

So the noodles were soft? Well except for the ends. Looks like a good snack

Thanks everyone.
Not all the ends got too crispy.

I used a nutmeg grater....not
80 grit sandpaper flat on the counter...not, breaks
And 80 g on my orbital, way to fast and broke.
my dremel is packed somewhere in the garage.

Looks good nice work! I wonder how that squeeze cheese in a can would work?
Did you like the thin or thick cut bacon better?

The thin slice was better for this.
