Kansas Lollipops (bacon pork pinwheels)

If you're looking for a new week day favorite, look no further! These delicious pork loin and bacon roll ups are sure to be a hit in your house! Taking minimal time and effort you can have this tasty dish any night of the week. 

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20-30 minutes

Serves: 4-6 people

Recommended Pellets:  Hickory and Cherry mix


1 pork loin (whole)

4 pieces of bacon

Traeger Honey Bourbon sauce



Cavenders Greek Seasoning

Skewers for pork rolls


Start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid, turn the temperature up to High and allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes.

Start off by trimming your pork loin of any unwanted silver skin or fat. Then using a sharp knife start cutting your pork loin length wise until you have 4 nice, long strips of pork. Lay your pork out flat then season with salt, pepper and Cavender's greek seasoning. Once you have the seasoning applied flip the pork strips over and layer your bacon on the unseasoned side. Once your bacon is set and ready start tightly rolling the pork strips where the bacon is being rolled up on the inside.

After you have a nice and tight roll, shove a skewer all the way through your pork roll to secure it in place.

After securing each pork roll you're ready to take it to the grill. Set the pork down then leave it undisturbed for 15 minutes. This will allow for some beautiful caramelization. 

When 15 minutes are up brush your Traeger honey bourbon sauce all over the pork, turn each skewer over, then coat the other side. Let your pork sit for another 5-10 minutes depending on thickness of your pork. 

I suggest serving your Kansas Lollipops (pork rolls) with white cheddar mashed potatoes, crispy onion strings and a nice vinaigrette salad!
