I have done both the weave and the wrap and I gotta tell you that I have a tough time getting the bacon cooked all the way through when I do the weave. Which do you prefer or what do you do? Crisp up in the broiler? I'm wondering if I'm taking them off the smoker a little too soon? I do check the IT to be sure it is appropriate for the type of meat in the fatty. I will agree the wrap is not as pretty as the weave. I tend to make 5 or 6 fatties at a time, so I cool, slice and freeze my leftovers. When I thaw and cook the frozen fatties, I crisp up them up good then if needed. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts! And remember, like all good food, eat fatties in moderation.
