Bacon Weave BBQ Fatty

Bacon Weave BBQ Fatty

By Traeger Kitchen

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

This recipe serves:


Units of Measurement:
8 Ounce cream cheese
2 jalapeños, diced
1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
32 Ounce ground pork sausage
10 Slices bacon
To Taste Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub
To Taste Traeger Apricot BBQ Sauce


  • 1

    In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, jalapeños, and black pepper until well-combined.

  • 2

    Place a sheet of parchment paper over a large cutting board. Spread the pork sausage out on the parchment into a large rectangle, about a 1/2 inch thick.

  • 3

    Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the sausage. Starting from a long end, roll the sausage up into a log. Refrigerate until ready to grill.

  • 4

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

  • 5

    While the grill is preheating, construct the bacon weave: Place a sheet of parchment on a clean surface. Arrange 5 slices of bacon horizontally and as close together as possible. Starting from the far left, weave the remaining 5 slices of bacon over and under the horizontal slices in an alternating fashion.

  • 6

    Place the pork sausage roll on top of one edge of the bacon weave, then wrap the bacon around the roll to cover completely. Season with Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub.

  • 7

    Place the fatty directly on grill grates. Insert the probe into the center of the roll. Close the lid and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165℉, about 90 minutes.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

    165 ˚F / 74 ˚C


  • 8

    Glaze the fatty with Traeger Apricot Sauce, then close the lid and cook until the glaze starts to caramelize, about 10 minutes.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

    Remove from the grill and let cool for 15 minutes before slicing crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Enjoy!
