    Decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather today. Sunny and 63.

    Made two fatties, one is a pizza fattie made with ground pork, Penzey's italian sausage seasoning and a little bit of arbol pepper powder. The filling is tomato paste, pizza seasoning from Penzey's, pepperoni and shredded mozzarella. I'm smoking this for 3 hrs and then wrapping it in pizza dough and back in the smoker to finish.

    The other one is a mexican one made with ground pork that I made in to chorizo. Followed the recipe in Rytek's book which included white vinegar, salt, hot pepper, cbp, garlic, oregano and paprika. I adapted the amounts to the amount of pork I had. The filling is salsa and a couple of handfuls of preshredded Mexican cheese mix. It's sitting on a couple of tortillas so I don't get them mixed up, lol.

    A couple of weeks ago hubby asked me jokingly if I was going to smoke Spam some day. Little does he know, today's the day. [​IMG] Took two cans and put one in unseasoned. The other one is seasoned with Jeff's Rub. Should be interesting.

    Here they all are after just being put in the smoker.

    What can I say.........................

    That's a superb combination of Fattys...the meat and fillings, great!!!!!!...the wrap on the pizza Fatty!...I will have to go back to this someday soon and roll up some fattys again...........never smoked Spam yet, eat it a few times a year (just too salty, and it's more of a lunch item)...but with a smoke? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm........ I like the idea....if too salty for a sammie, use as a garnish or filler meat to a chef salad, or........oooooh, man, got my juices flowing.........slurp!

    Good creativity, Dawn........if we both weren't married, I think I'd have to propose!!!!!!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (2,000+ miles seperation between us can be overcome)>>>>>>>>>>>>

    You shoulda posted a "poly wrap ur keyboard" alert!!!!

    Got a vote from me!

    Keep those sweet smokes coming, cause they're all good!

    Thanks, Mark. I used a mix of mesquite and hickory. The temp was 230 for about 3 to 4 hrs depending on which one it was.
