We’re rolling up a sausage BBQ fatty with cream cheese and jalapeños, wrapping it in a bacon weave, then glazing it with our Apricot BBQ Sauce. This salty, sweet and savory wood-fired classic is the pinnacle of pork perfection.

For the Filling: Mix together the cream cheese, diced jalapeños, salt and pepper. Set aside.
8 Ounce cream cheese
2 jalapeños, diced
1 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
Place a sheet of parchment paper over a large cutting board. Spread the pork sausage out on the parchment paper, making a large rectangle about a 1/2 inch thick.
32 Ounce pork sausage
Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the sausage. Then roll up, similar to a cinnamon roll. Form into a log shape and set aside.
When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
350 ˚F / 177 ˚C
While grill is preheating, construct a bacon weave. Place a sheet of parchment onto a clean surface. On top of the parchment, lay out 5 slices of bacon horizontally and as close together as possible.
1 Pound bacon
Fold the first two inches of every other slice back. Place a slice of bacon vertically on top of the slices that aren’t folded. Place the folded portion back on top of the vertical slice.
Fold back the horizontal slices that are underneath the vertical slice. Place another slice next to the first vertical slice then fold the horizontal slices back.
Repeat with the remaining 3 slices of bacon. Place the sausage fatty on top of the bacon weave.
Tightly wrap the sausage in the bacon weave. Sprinkle fatty with Traeger Pork and Poultry rub.
