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.

    Steps

    • 1

      For the Filling: Mix together the cream cheese, diced jalapeños, salt and pepper. Set aside.
    • 2

      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.
    • 3

      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.
    • 4

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

      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.
    • 6

      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.
    • 7

      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.
    • 8

      Repeat with the remaining 3 slices of bacon. Place the sausage fatty on top of the bacon weave.
    • 9

      Tightly wrap the sausage in the bacon weave. Sprinkle fatty with Traeger Pork and Poultry rub.
    • 10

      Place fatty on grill and cook until the fatty reaches an internal temperature of 165℉, about 90 minutes.
