Bradley Flavor Bisquettes – Hickory
- In a large bowl combine all ingredients, except the cheese and bacon. Use your hands to knead the mixture until everything is fully combined and thoroughly mixed.
- Mold the meat mixture into a square flat shape, place the cheese in the middle part and roll the meat over it so the cheese is fully covered. Wrap the loaf with bacon (you can use toothpicks to help to hold it in place).
- Startup the smoker using hickory wood bisquettes and oven temperature of 250°F (121.1C). Cook it until the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71.1C).
