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.


The list of fatties prepared and ingredients


Healthy Choice Fatty - Turkey Bacon, Hamburger, Bell Pepper, Onion, Mushroom, Cheddar and Colby Jack.

Breakfast Fatty - Bacon, Sage Sausage, Scrambled Eggs, Diced Ham, Potatoes Obrien, Onion, Cheddar and Colby Jack.

Mac n Cheese Fatty - Bacon, Hamburger, Velveeta Shells n Cheese.

Original Fatty - Bacon, Jimmy Dean Sausage, Bell Pepper, Onion, Mushroom, Cheddar and Colby Jack.

Pizza Fatty - Bacon, Italian Sausage, Pizza Sauce, Pepperoni, Bell Pepper, Onion, Mushroom, Provolone. 


On to the QVIEW!!  Smoked with Hickory Chunks and Apple Chips.


Turkey Bacon, Two slices long, two slices wide...not fun1.jpg



Breakfast Fatty






The Pizza Fatty, and my personal favorite, I mixed the Pizza Sauce with Tomato Paste to thicken it up.













Thanks for lookin, hope you enjoyed the pics.  Now for fun, which one gets your vote?

oh yeah, everyone at the office loved all of them, And got lots of questions on how to make them.  The mac and cheese fatty was a hit with some, but myself, I think I would have added even more cheese to it, the center wasn't quite gooey enough.  I think a couple chunks of velveeta cheese added when rolling would have done the trick.


What was really surprising, is that the turkey bacon after being smoked was almost as tasty as regular bacon...crazy right?

Great job and nice variety on the fatties. I voted for the breakfast fattie because I generally like them the best. You are right about the turkey bacon being almost as good as the regular bacon once you smoke em. I used ground turkey when I did one because I had a few family members that don't eat pork or red meat. icon_eek.gif You should give it a try.

Wow Excellent job on the fatties...I voted breakfast fattie but as others have stated that mac and cheese one has got my attention!! Looking at the poll results makes me laugh a bit..not a vote for healthy choice. I guess we love the good stuff...lol

I voted for the pizza fattie, but the mac & cheese is a close second. I'm with Beer, you should have had "All of the above" on there too. Great job, great presentation!

post #15 of 21

I too voted for the Breakfast one with the Pizza one right behind. I like the idea of the Mac N Cheese too but would have to change out the Velveta for something else.  May have to try this with my 7 cheese mac n cheese recipe

Nice job and I too vote for all of the above
