Contest Fail, Fatty Success - Cleveland Polish Boy Fatty

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Well, I was a little too excited when I made my fatty entry for the contest, and forgot to put the secret word in the pic of the fatty after I took it off of the smoker.  I cut in, and oops!  Oh well.



So, here it is, my would-be entry into the contest.  I decided to do a fatty inspired by a Cleveland original...the Polish Boy sandwich.



Start with french fries deep fried crisp and golden




Deep fry an all beef kielbasa




Bacon weave




Next a thin ground sausage patty (don't know what else to call the "sausage liner")




Sprinkled on some rub




TBS is a-rollin'




Add the french fries




Add barbecue sauce (usually included in a Polish Boy)




Add the kielbasa to the stack and roll




And there's the bundle of joy




On the smoker and headed for 165-IT




Done...resting and ready to slice




Another view




Sliced and placed on my wife's homemade Italian mini-loaf with some cole slaw on top (standard Cleveland presentation) and served with a side of kettle chips and an Edmund Fitzgerald dark porter from Cleveland's own Great Lakes Brewery.

I was so focused on the presentation of the sandwich pic, I completely forgot it in the whole fatty pic.  *FAIL*


Oh well...at least it tasted awesome.

That looks Awesome!!! I'm a meat and potatoes guy so I'm putting that one on my to-do list! What kind of sausage did you use?

That's a great lookin fatty. Yep I forgot mine in some of the pics, but caught it when reviewing the pics on the camera, so I was able to fix it.

S2K9K, it was a simple store-bought beef polish sausage.  It was a last minute decision one day, so I didn't have time to get a good one from a butcher in Cleveland.


For those not familiar with the Polish boy, here it is featured on Man Vs. Food:




And on No Reservations, where Michael Symon takes Anthony Bourdain to Hot Sauce Williams:

Thanks guys!  I'm a Cleveland boy, so making this one was very close to my heart.

Just a suggestion, should anyone else try it...next time, I'd probably split the kielbasa in half.  There's enough stuff in there to keep it from drying out, it would make the fatty easier to form, and you're get more sausage per bite when you slice it.

Yes you did a fine job with the whole Q-view thingie. Now your fattie is great looking and I bet it does or did taste good to. I have forgot a few times to include the keyword on throwdowns to. It happens but you did get to eat the fattie. WINNER
