Chipotle cheese bratwurst fattie and smoked burgers... Q-View

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by bbqandfootball, Feb 10, 2009.

  1. Rainy here in Central TX today. But I'm off, and need to get some stuff outta the freezer.

    I remembered a post a while back about using bratwurst sausage in a fattie, remembered that I had several packs in the freezer that I bought at a reduced price at work since they were about to expire in date, then remembered that I had beer in the fridge along with all the needed fixings for an experimental fattie.

    So...

    De-cased the brats


    Added about a cup of ground beef to make it stretch across the whole pan, yet be thick enough


    Filling is cream cheese, chedder, and a mexican blend cheese... all of which needed to be used up.


    Had a can of Chipotle's on hand...in they went


    Had a couple Japs in the fridge, chopped them and in they went.


    Behold! The ugliest fattie ever rolled!



    Hope this baby turns out ok. It was a bit loose, and hard to transfer from the pan to the pit. Hopefully if I leave it be for the first hour or so, It'll set up enough for me to make room for the burgers.

    I guess time will tell.

    More pics to come.

    Man that looks good!!
     
  9. Looks awesome to me. I dont think I have ever seen an "UGLY" fattie. They are way to delicious to be talked about like that. [​IMG]
     
  10. Made a couple of small hamburger patties. Almost 4 pounds in all. Bottom right has some chipotle's and adobo mixed in, just for kicks.


    Fattie after about 1 1/2 hours and a couple gentle turns. No leaks yet. Burgers joining the party.


    This baby is holding up alot better than I thought it would. By the way, the temp is about 260-280 with mesquite.

    Man, you combine fresh japs and smoked japs in adobo along with cheese into a FATTY, and you're in for a hot and tasy treat. Save me a slice... or two.
