Bacon unwrapped filets and roast corn

Not sure why but my bacon did not want to stay in place. I had two picks in each. :( Finally quit fighting it and just cooked. Turned out quite tasty. Added some roasted silver queen corn seasoned with salt and pepper. Nice meal.

    When you make the apple or peach burritos what do you coat the outside with before cooking?

    You know what? Mrs ~t~ likes the bacon on a fillet too and I always struggled when cooking on a grate; I don't know if it has something to do with the coefficient of shrinkage or what.....but when I started using the TRex method with a skillet or griddle, I had better results.

    I do buy 2 strips of the thick deli bacon when I pick out the steaks, and even though this picture shows 2 toothpicks, I use 4 or 5. Before the first turn I clamp the fillet with the long tongs and lock them, giving the bacon a crisp up where ever it touches....then cook the other side.
    Happy Trails

    That is one way I did not think of doing them. I have a CI skillet. May have to invest in a spider soon. Thanks.

    Been a while since I made any of those, but I use an eggwash then sprinkle with a strategically mixed cinnamon/sugar mix..I have heard some use a butter spray...I say..eggperiment and see what you like best and post pix of your results ;)

    Thank you Sir. Glad I asked because I was sure it was melted butter.

    And even setting it on the grate in the regular position, A CI skillet works real good if you give it a few minutes to get up to to the right temp.
    Happy Trails
