    I want to staple bacon...

    A couple of years ago I was gifted some Omaha steaks from a friend. I had no meat thermometer at the time and sadly I over-grilled them. But the real gift was seeing the stainless steel cooking "staples" that were used to attached the bacon to the filets. Does anyone know where I can buy some of these? I plan to wash and reuse them again and again. The broken toothpicks I've been using are going to get me sued! Thanks fellow members!

        You might want to look at Grill Pinz. I don't have them (yet). Here's a thread I found. And welcome!

            Personally, I'd be inclined to buy some inexpensive short metal skewers (like THESE from WebRestaurantStore.com) and shorten them if need be.

                      have seen them use this to cut out the fat core in a ribeye primal, then glue back together and steak out into delmonico steaks. Tried one and could not taste a difference due to the glue. It is based on the amino acit glutamine if I am not mistaken.

                    Interesting reading all of this. I guess I've never thought, while eating bacon or prepping a meal with bacon- "You know what I need, staples or glue for this bacon."... Learn something new every day despite my best efforts to the contrary.

                    I will say, after doing some filets on the Grilla, as as either No-flip burgers or reverse searing, wife and I agreed that the bacon wrapped ones were not as good as the unwrapped one. Less surface for browning, as the bacon shields the meat from ever browning on the sides, and less smoke flavor, except in the bacon. The Grilla makes great bacon, regardless, and it is also better without being wrapped around the steak and skewed in place.

                      I'm of the opinion that bacon wrapped steaks are a crime, but...to each his/her own.

                        I dunno about a crime, but a thing that takes two great things and produces a result that is less than the sum of the parts... absolutely.

                        I agree with both of you Potkettleblack. Never been much of a fan of bacon wrapped anything, makes my food taste like breakfast.

                        I like a bacon side. I like a burger with bacon as a topping. Hell, I live in Chicago, we practically invented the bacon, egg, and cheese burger. That's breakfast and lunch in one sandwich.

                      Is this a discussion about “staples” or welcoming ya in? Well, welcome, staples, skewers, toothpicks & all. Eat good and have fun!

                        A bacon wrapped reverse seared tenderloin fillet will change your mind.

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      Placeholder

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      Placeholder

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Placeholder

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Placeholder

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      Placeholder

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      Placeholder

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                      Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
