    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.

                    Staples, toothpicks, skewers... nails?

                    Moo Glue that bacon to that steak. No chance of a splinter, a forgotten staple, and no unsightly holes through your tender steak...

                      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.
