Meatball Parm Fatty (Q VIEW) Italian Sauce "Gravy" too

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

So, I am still into new and different fatties.  As an Italian, I needed to mix my cooking world with my smoking world...Meatball Parm fatty sounded good to me!  I made some of my Italian sauce "Gravy" too, so I included a q-view of that as well.



Some of the stuff I used.



Hot italian sausage taken out of the casings and sauteed in a lil olive oil.IMAG0432.jpeg Add chopped garlic, onion to sausage and after a bit add some paste.IMAG0433.jpeg

Add some spices/herbs (Dried oregano, parsley, basil, italian seasoning, salt/pep, crushed red pep flake, onion powder, garlic powder)IMAG0434.jpeg

Stir it up...dont let it burn! For me, this is the key & the base of a good sauce!


Add 1 large can of crushed tomatoes, & 1 large can of sauce. I add 1 large cans worth of beef stock. (instead of water, gives more flavor)


A bit more of the seasonings added earlier plus 2-3 bay leaves.


Some parmesan cheese.


Reduce to low temp, add meatballs and cover for 2-3+ hours.  I always say, the longer the better!



Meatball Parm Fatty

Filling:  Chopped meatballs, mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, xtra sauce



Bacon quilt, wrap the sausage and meatball parm mix.


210-230 degrees in the MES with Hickory dust in the AMS. 165degrees internal temp (about 2.5 - 3 hrs)IMAG0451.jpeg

Came out better than expected! Went pretty quick.  Hope you enjoyed the tons of pics!IMAG0452.jpeg




Warm xtra sauce for dipping made it a keeper! Enjoy!IMAG0464.jpeg

Oh man that looks great! Did you make the meatballs yourself or were they a store bought?

You can use either.  I keep my xtra meatballs frozen in the fridge.  They reconstitute in the sauce.  The longer in the sauce the better in my opinion!  Didnt put a qview on the meatball because i took em outta the freezer.  Next time!!

Awesome fattie. That's my kind of flavor combo right there. I would have probably thrown in some pepperoni too.
