A Traeger recipe list wouldn't be complete without a bacon dish. Feast your eyes on this untraditional bacon weave ham for your next get-together. Before you add your glaze of pineapple juice, ginger beer, brown sugar, and mustard, you'll need to make an intricate bacon weave.

On parchment paper, lay half the bacon in parallel strips next to each other. Weave the remaining strips perpendicular, alternating over and under by lifting every other strip of bacon. Then you'll transfer the bacon weave onto the top of the ham so it's infused with an extra bacon kick as your pork creation cooks.

From traditional hams with brown sugar to unique hams with bacon, make sure to pig out during your next holiday feast with a Traeger holiday ham.
