Had my first smoke this weekend. My brother and I are planning on doing some pulled pork and ribs next week for Fathers Day, so we went with whatever we found in the freezer. He had a couple of chunks of pork loin and some chicken and I had some chicken and some sausage and bacon. So, we made some pork loin, some chicken roll ups and a fatty.
We made 3 different chicken roll ups.
1. Jalapeno, onion, tomato and mexican cheese
2. Mushroom and swiss
3. Pepperoni, onion, mushroom, tomatoes, fresh garlic and mozzarella cheese
We went with the pepperoni ingredients for the fatty (fatty Italiano).
I also smoked a ham steak to put in our beans.
Here's a few pictures, although not as many as I planned on taking. I did fine managing everything I smoked, but after I had taken the fatty out and got a picture of it, just about everything else finished at the same time and I got so busy I forgot to snap some pictures of the other foods when they were finished. I'll do better next time (or maybe assign a full time photographer).
Here's my MES 40 loaded up. They tray on top is some small pieces and scraps of chicken that I just smothered with whatever filling ingredients I had and cheese. The white dish on the second rack from the bottom is garlic-onion potatoes. The ham steak is already in the beans as this picture was taken maybe an hour or so into the smoke.
Here's the finished fatty. Wish I'd taken a picture after it was cut as I was very pleased with the layering. Next time.
PS: Have to get a new tile as that one cracked into multiple pieces.
PSS: Thanks to all the smokers in this site for their assistance and tips on smoking and recipe ideas! Reading this site for weeks before I smoked made the job much easier and me more confident and calm during the smoke.
