    That's called a bacon fattie, bacon fatty, or just fatties. I did some here on my pellet grill smoker. I added a lot of fine chopped veggies to the ground pork and lots of herbs and spices. To me they were overkill and too greasy and heavy. My niece liked them though, and was talking about it at the bar she manages for weeks after I made them.

    I'm a bacon-loving freakazoid.....Just the basketweave bacon wrap looks heavenly to me.....
    I don't eat it very often, for the grease/nitrite factor.....
    But when I eat it, I enjoy it. I caught the tailend of the new show "United States of Bacon" the other day flippin' through the cable channels.....I gotta quit watching that show.....

    Look up bacon fattie on Google and you will get a lot of recipes. AKA: Bacon Explosion, The Lard Bomb, Death by Bacon, and perhaps Scotty's Bacon Overkill.

    We could screw a Fram oil filter on the end of it, that'd make it a LITTLE less artery-hardening!!

    Just put a straw in each end of the filter and it might work lol.

    I'm thinking if I cook that puppy over the coals and some applewood slivers, most of the oil will leach out of it.....

    I'll have to keep it higher off of the coals than most things I cook, so it don't catch on fire!!!!

    You could make one big enough to fit in the evaporator and fill it with apples on top ! That would be delicious.

    speaking of which, did you know that the ol' timers would hang a piece of raw bacon over the evaporator? the steam from the sap evaporating would melt the fat off of the bacon very slowly, and that occasional drip of grease into the sap would break the surface tension of the boiling sap so it didn't boil over!! Even the old timers that made maple syrup had an obsession with bacon!!

    I use a wee little pat of real butter every 40 gallons or so.......never had a boil-over since......

    Needs more bacon.

    I'd be on a falafel and oatmeal diet for a month if I ate that.

    You want to try a good recipe, here's one we whipped up at work years ago. We have a smoker in the one shop at work (dont you tell nobody, either!). The guys would save up our geese, dove, and pheasant breasts and get some local slab bacon, fresh hot hungarian peppers, and fresh onion....

    Take each goose breast and pheasant breast, cut into strips. Take the dove/partridge breast, butterfly each one of those.

    Take the peppers and onions, slice into quarters (top down)
    Take a slice of pepper and onion, put on the breast, roll into logs.
    Take log, roll it up with a slice of bacon.
    Put toothpick through each one of these little puppies...

    Put in the smoker at medium heat for around an hour or so (or cook on your grill til done) and WOW........they are de-friggin-licious!!

    I smoked my fatties over 1/2 alder and 1/2 apple competition grade pellets. "Dead good eats", as they say in the UK. I also wrapped them in foil so they 'marinated' as they cooked. The oil filter idea might be good for all that overkill. Despite all the negative medical hype and BS about it, bacon fat is actually better for you than they say. Its half monounsaturated. Its the nitrites and smoke flavor additives in bacon that are bad.

    Yummy bacon bacon bacon! :p

    Stihlhead that smoke combo sounds KILLER! No alder here, but I do use my homemade applewood chips, mixed with white oak and occasionally cherry, grapevine, pecan and hickory......

    Just for the record, I hit "like" three times.

    Half alder and half apple is the old school mix for smoking salmon in the PNW. And yes, alder is a Pacific coast species with a few stands inland in northern Idaho, and my favorite smoking wood. It has a light neutral smoke flavor. It is the most common BBQ pellet blending wood out there. Oak is way too heavy for pork IMO, and oak can impart a bitter flavor on BBQ. I only use oak on beef, and not much at that. Apple is my brother's favorite smoking wood, and common all over. Pecan is good too. No hickory here, but I can get it in pellet form. You cannot go wrong with pure apple smoked BACON though.

    I just gotta have more BACON!

    I can make pork chops taste like bacon in the pellet smoker too. :p And I make a dry rub alder smoked pork roast to die for. >> And slow alder smoked salmon... ;) Hmm, maybe salmon wrapped in bacon?!!! My next attempt at recipe creativity.: salmon bacon bombs smoked over maple wood. :cool:

    More bacon please!?

    i do bacons on my smoker grill all the time..start out on low for a bit to let the fat render out and then turn it up to high for crispiness...I might be able to pull off something similar with that bacon demon..."slow and low is the tempo"...and then a bit of "who's your daddy" to brown it up a bit....looks like I might have to lose a whole day off experimenting with this one...

    I've done a couple of Bacon Explosions on the Big Green Egg using Dizzy Pig Brand "Dizzy Dust" for the rub. I use ground pork instead of sausage & add the seasonings that I want. I also grate up some Cheddar Cheese on top of the inner bacon crumbles & when it's almost done I slather it liberally with my own home-brewed BBQ sauce. Throw it back on til the sauce kinda carmelizes & OOOWEEE! Can't forget the Lipitor for dessert....
