Wrap with bacon and rub

Set up the Big green Egg for indirect heat using a Plate Setter. I got the temp to 350° for a faster cook. I used Pecan Wood for the smoke.

Place the ABT’s on a raised grid and put a drip pan underneath.

Let these babies smoke for 45 minutes checking occasionally to ensure the bacon is cooking evenly and you are not overdoing it.
