One other thing that I was amazed with is how fast this thing shut down, that tells me the seal on this thing is very tight.

I am going to like this little guy.

Beautiful weaving skills.

I've done a couple fatties. The weave eludes me. I just wrap.
Still need a 22 yellow

Why does the weave elude you?  First time I thought it was super easy

@LightningBoldtz it was stretching, getting thin and getting hard to work with.

@SixZeroFour thanks. I was making it way more complicated than it needed to be.

Ron, I am thinking the same thing. My Walmart had a stack of them the other day for $154.99. I have had no luck finding an appropriate pot to make a mini. I am about to just go for it.

@LightningBoldtz  @SixZeroFour  or anyone else that has experience with the bacon weave. Do you just tuck the weave under the fatty and just hold it together, to get it on the grate? Or, is it held together somehow?

Oh, very tasty looking first cook on the 14" LB!
