Avoid the burn: Stainless Steel Cocktail Picks are the perfect reusable “toothpick” for outdoor grilling! Easy to use; easy to clean; and easy to store.
After having success smoking a turkey and a pork shoulder, I decided to try smoking a pork loin. Using the same technique I used on the rotisserie, I wanted to wrap the loin in a bacon weave. I wove the bacon and slathered Chipotle BBQ sauce on it and wrapped it up in a roll for storage and marinating overnight.
Now, if you’ve ever wrapped anything in bacon for cooking, you’ve probably used toothpicks to hold the ends of the bacon and pin it to the meat. If you’ve used toothpicks, then you’ve probably noticed how the ends that are poking out of the meat get singed during the cooking process leaving you wondering how many toothpicks you actually used. This, invariably, leads to someone getting that lucky piece of meat with the missing toothpick. Biting into that toothpick is like biting into a piece of bone. It’s not fun.
