  • 1 medium green cabbage
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Homemade Sweet Rub
  • 12 slices bacon
  1. Preheat smoker to 275 degrees F with your favorite hard wood.

  2. Use a sharp knife to remove the stem and part of the core from the cabbage.

  3. Drizzle the cabbage head with olive oil and spread evenly around. Season the cabbage on all sides with the sweet rub.

  4. Assemble your bacon weave on a large piece of parchment paper by laying 6 slices of bacon side by side and alternating 6 strips in the opposite direction over and under the other strips. Roll up the parchment around the bacon weave.

  5. Unroll the bacon weave over the top of the cabbage. Use toothpicks to secure the loose ends of the bacon to the cabbage.

  6. Place the wrapped cabbage on the smoker, close the lid, and smoke for 3 hours.

  7. Remove from the smoker and take out all of the toothpicks. Slice into wedges and serve.
