my first bacon bomb

Postby Tasso-Hunter » Fri Sep 09, 2016 4:57 am

Hay guys...Let me show you my first bacon bomb...I did it during a rainy afternoon to fight the cold temperature :laughing7:
I mixed 1/2 pork minced meat with 1/2 calf minced meet adding 2 sausages also. I mixed all together spice rub and before do the classic meatloaf to it I putted in the middle scamorza italian cheese and yellow fresh pepper. In the end I wrapped with bacon.
I started my weber and kept the temperature about 300° for 1.40 hour smoking with apple wood....the final taste was good but the meat was not very juicy, was a little dry...where is the mistake?

Do you know the fat/lean ratio of the beef you used?

Could be. If it was a lean ratio like 90/10. The ground pork could have been pretty lean too, but most times ground pork is at 80/20 lean/fat. Not sure what it may be in your area though.

Probably you're right....the next time I'll do it probably it'll better buy ground pork and beef asking to the butcher a more hight fat ratio....which lean/fat ratio do you think should be the best?

I like to use 70/30 for meatloaf, which would work well for a bacon bomb. I made my last one with this ratio and it was juicy as could be.

Thank you! I sure did! It got some sauce about the last 20 minutes or so on the grill.
