If it's worth doing, it's worth OVERdoing

Post  Remaggib on Fri Oct 05, 2012 4:47 pm

My wife's friend Veronica is very much like me. Basically, almost a heavier me, with boobs. In other words, awesome. Cool Anyways, she said something to my wife a while back about wanting bacon wrapped steak. Not the normal stuff, something better. Or that's how I interpreted it. So that's what I did. Took 3 pounds of some sort of steak, and 2.5 pounds of bacon, and made them into delicious 1+ pound wads of pure enjoyment.

This isn't the first time I've gone overboard with bacon-related delicious. It was less than 2 months ago I took 2 pounds of bacon and 2 pounds of italian sausage and half a bottle of barbeque sauce and some barbeque rub and made my bacon explosion. Since I'm unsure at this moment if I shared pictures of it, here is the bacon explosion.


Step 1, make a sheet of weaved bacon.


Step 2, sprinkle bbq rub on the bacon.


Step 3, lay out 2 pounds of italian sausage onto the bacon sheet.


Step 4, sprinkle a "healthy" amount of pre-cooked bacon onto the sausage.


Step 5, barbeque sauce.


Step 6, roll up the sausage tightly, over the bacon and barbeque sauce.


Step 7, roll the bacon sheet over the sausage, which is over the barbeque sauce covered bacon.


At this point, you have a log of awesome. And it's not done yet!


Step 8, more bbq rub.


Now you have to measure to figure out roughly how long to cook it. 1" = 1 hour at 325 degrees. Or so.


And it's ready for the smoker. A generous amount of rolling smoke for the duration of the cooking will pack even more flavor into it.



After smoking and cooking, it looks a bit dark. It's not burned, but the outside is crispy.


Here's where step 9 comes into play, more barbeque sauce.


And finally, the finished product.




Now, today, I went to make the bacon wrapped steak. It took a couple hours of prep (bacon explosion also took 2 hours prep) but made bacon sheets again, and put 2" thick steak in them. I don't have pictures of me making it, because my wife is at work today. For the bacon explosion she was snapping pictures while I was prepping. In any case, here's what I have right now. The smoker is going to be heating up as soon as this post is complete.






I'm just going to throw this out there, if you find yourself in SE Wisconsin and want a heart attack, with a couple days' notice I can feed you. cheers

Lol the K'nex cup rack, I forget about that sometimes. I made that when I had a badly sprained ankle and was laid up for a couple weeks. I wanted to feel useful as something other than eye candy to my wife, and she said she needed a coffee mug rack. That's what I came up with. Functional, you can put cups away wet and let them air dry and it'll never rust!

Unfortunately I didn't snap any pictures when the bacon wrapped steak was done cooking. Cooler temperatures (48 degrees) dropped the internal temp of my smoker to around 250 (can hit about 400 on a warmer day) so it took longer to cook, and by the time the meat was ready we were feeling the alcohol and were very hungry. I do, however, still have the puncture wound when one of the steaks started falling, and I caught it in my open hand, toothpick side down. I won't be doing this particular experiment again (weaved-bacon-sheet wrapped steak) due to the large amounts of inedible bacon. It just was too thick where it overlapped, and only the outer layer of bacon could be eaten. The rest was so fatty and chewy that though cooked, was still raw looking and rubbery. That's ok, I'm already working on my next idea lol

So Jeff Francoeur is a pretty cool Royal. He hung out in the parking lot with A's fans and made some of his teammates rather jealous.

You'll see something familiar in the pictures.
