My buddy and his wife and I [mostly his wife] decided to collaborate on a Pork Roulade. Many thanks to LC and to Smoking Coles for their excellent posts on this cook :)

The loin with all the stuff, mozzarella, spinach, cheddar, sun dried tomatoes, onion, olives, sweet
peppers, pine nuts :P

The Bacon weave was actually pretty simple, greasy, but simple :laugh:

    Looks great, got any tips on bacon weave?

    Looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing!
  • It looks like it turned out great, very appetizing colors on the plate, too.

    I took a picture of my handle, it's very uncomfortable with squared edges and your looks much nicer (and round). How did you attach it, I don't see any screw holes in yours.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    Thanks,
    The weave was pretty simple, we started in the middle, laid a piece longways, then one across, laid another longways, then another across, once you get it started you just fold back every other cross strip, lay on a longways, fold back on the other side, and do the same thing, working around from both sides.
    Not sure if this explanation makes any sense, but I think the key is to start in the center and work out and around.
    Hope this helps B)

    Faith, what size egg is that? Will your handle [the metal part] come off easily?
    I used 1 1/4" oak dowel, cut a 3/4" grove about 1/16" deep in the back side on my router table, then fastened it with screws.
    I have some of the dowel and will be glad to make you one.

  • Frank, this is an old large egg, the handle is attached and is part of the band. I see on my new large that the metal handle part unscrews from the band, maybe that is like the one you have.

    Faith

    Very Nice

    Faith, yes, I have the newer model, much easier to deal with. I can still cut you out a handle, the groove in it allows it to fit flush on the metal band. You could run a couple of screws in from the back with a little offset screwdriver and smear some J-B Weld on it.
    Why don't you e-mail me so we can stop filling up the forum with this.
