So today I did a lot of things for the first time.
First Ill start from the beginning. I'm Andrew and I live in north east North Carolina. I have smoked some meats a little bit before on a cheap char-broil side by side. Maintaining temps in that thing were a night mare and it kept me from really enjoying the smoke. Last week I decided to go to bass pro and buy a propane smoker. So soon after I got it I cured it and smoked a few racks of baby backs and a chicken for my dad and brother. Man food. Being away from home I had to use a rub from bass pro and it ended up being a little on the salty side. That just meant it took a few more beers to wash it down. They turned out great and everyone loved them.
So fast forward to today. I had an itch to make a fatty, some ABTs and some turkey legs. All of those Ive never done before.
The fatty I made was a Greek fattie. I stuffed ground beef with spinach, feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes, Greek olives, and a little olive oil. Wrapped in a bacon weave of coarse. It turned out pretty good but the ground beef needed something, it had not taste.
Here's the fatty
The ABTs were stuffed with garden vegetable cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. I bought a pound which turned into about 28 canoes. I couldn't eat all of them so I brought the rest to work for the guys and they LOVED them. Everyone wanted more, they went quick. Ill make some more for them soon.
Here's the ABTs I couldn't stop eating them right off the smoker
The turkey legs were on sale at wally world so I gave them a try. Gave them a simple rub and threw them on the smoker. They came out great as well. Im really liking this new smoker!
Here are the legs.
Oh and another this is another first! My first post.
