Fatty on a Mini

My first fatty on my mini. WOW is all I have to say. The combination of flavors was delicious. Just one question for others, I used a thicker cut bacon and it never got crispy. Has anyone else run into this problem?

    Time and temp of cook? Just by looks I'd have went longer but I don't know how hot you were. My bacon gets crispy ish on the outside.

    Ps. Nice weave!!

    250 for 3 hours. Inside temp was 167ish, that's why I pulled

    Seams fair! Yesterday I did 375-400 and feel like I have better results when I'm over 300 Took about 1.5 hour to get to 165• IT

    I'd get it a little hotter next time. That way you can cook at bacon before the inside gets done. Also thick bacon is the only way to go!

    Last one I did, I made my weave, threw the weave on a pan and cooked briefly in oven to jump start it. Let it cool then proceeded with filling and rolling. It worked to get the bacon more crisp.
