So I got the chance to smoke some fatties for an office luncheon, Prepped the night before, woke up at 4:30am to put them on the smoker, and cranked out a variety pack for everyone at the office to try their first fatty experience. Best part was, I didn't have to pay any cash to do it as everyone generously donated, and I even got to come in an hour or two late.
However, there was some lessons learned, I had never made more than two fatties at once. Lesson #1 - Bacon weave gets easier as the bacon thaws out, and turkey bacon weaves are not easy no matter what. Lesson #2 - The rolled out meat gets harder to work with as it gets warm, keep the zip lock bags in the fridge until you need em. They started to fall apart when I rolled em. But luckily, keeping them in the fridge overnight helped when I went to smoke them later. I've decided that is really a crucial step in fatty preparation.
