First fatties!

  1. Well I am new to smoking.  Did my first batch of food this past Friday, 2 chickens and 2 copper river red salmon.  I was pretty impressed with my first go around and would say I am hooked now!!




    So this past weekend I had to pull 12 hour shifts and I spent most of my time searching, reading, and soaking up everything BBQ related....my boss would be impressed!!  That is how I stumbled upon this little treasure of a website!  That is where I fell in love with the idea of a fattie, so after work yesterday I stopped at the grocery store and bought everything needed.  Plus two racks of ribs!  I know everyone loves there Q-view and I thought I was documenting everything as I went.  Well, I put everything in the smoker, came inside to load the pictures and low and behold I didn't have my SD card in...doh!!  Put it back in the camera and went back out and snapped a few pictures...wanted one of my bacon weave!  Now time to do some yard work and let my bradley work it's magic...will update with finished product!



    I suppose I should include what my fatties are.  I made one a pizza; mozz cheese, pepperoni, sauce, ham, and more cheese.  I think this one will end up blowing a gasket on me!  Second was a breakfast one; fried up some tators, onions, garlic, jalapenos, with some seasonings, and covered it in a bacon weave.  I was impresses with my first weave, it really is easy!  For the ribs, I have a spare ribs cut St. Louis style and a BB rack.  Made up my own seasoning, then added some brown sugar to the top!

  4. Pizza fatty finished up and OMG!!!




    The bacon fatty has 10 more degrees to go and the ribs are looking good!  Mom and the Wife loved the pizza fatty!!
     
  5. You did a fine job with all that! - nice smoke  [​IMG]
     
  6. And the racks of ribs.  A few things from today, the fatties were fun to make and surprisingly I liked the pizza one better than the bacon covered one.  Telling when ribs are done is tough!  The spare ribs were a little over done, not dry though, but were still darn good.  BB ribs turned out good but for some reason they had quite a bit more kick (heat) than the spares....same rub for both.  All in all, I am quite happy for my second smoke!!


     
  7. Those ribs look great too  [​IMG]   I see lots of smokes in your future  [​IMG]

    Great looking bacon weave! That pizza fatty looks bomb, is that pizza dough wrapped around the fatty? Looks like a gigantic calzone.

    Your finished fatty and ribs loo tasty. On your next smoke however you should move the raw (in this photo the Fatties) to the lower racks and your partially cooked (ribs ) to the upper racks. Safety wise it's not good to have the raw meat juices dripping on the cooked or partially cooked meats below. Always put poultry below whatever else you are cooking.

    You got all that from one weekend at work? Dang!

    Looks pretty dang tastee!
     
  16. Thanks guys!

    Yep, I smoked the pizza fatty first, then wrapped in dough and baked it!  It was awesome!!

    For the salmon, kind of combined a few brines I found online and made my own.  They soaked overnight and then into the smoker...turned out great!
     
  17. WOW Congrats!  Looks awesome!  I would think you could also hollow out a good Italian loaf and insert your fatty....yeah - that does not sound good.  Michael Scott just gave a TWSS!  LOL

    Gotta try the fatties!!!
