Bacon Wrapped and ready for The Big Green Egg

For this part, I didn’t feel like cleaning a cast iron pan so I just put it on some tin foil and set it on my drip tray.

Added Shakin' the Tree Spice

Sprinkle a little more of the Shakin’ the Tree seasoning on top of the bacon.

I have a bachelor's degree in construction engineering. When I’m not constructing or remodeling X-Ray Rooms, Cardiovascular Labs, and Pharmacies...I’m at home with my wife, two daughters and a dog. Outside of family, I love grilling and barbequing on my Big Green Egg and working on projects around the house.
