I finally got around to smoking a couple of fatties on my UDS. I wanted to keep it simple and go with some flavors we knew so I made a Jalapeno Swiss Mushroom and a Bacon Cheeseburger. Here are some Q-View.
The JSM Fatty. I only did half jalapeno because my daughter isn't a big jalapeno fan but loves mushrooms and Swiss cheese. I then wrapped it in a bacon weave.
The Bacon Cheeseburger Fatty. I fried some bacon before putting it in the meat and smothering with cheddar cheese. Again, wrapped in a bacon weave.
Placed on the UDS. I used a cooking grate wrapped in foil for a heat deflector. It was placed approx 6" from the top of the coals which was lump mixed with apple and Jack Daniels chips. The smell was amazing.
After 3 or so hours at 225°ish and the last 1/2 hour at 240-250°, IT was 170°. Time to pull them off. 2Lb's of ground beef was used to make each then and with the stuffing and all, each fatty was approx 2.5Lbs when all said and done.
The Bacon Cheeseburger.
A slice of each one. Served with my wife's wonderful cole-slaw (not pictured). The whole meal was phenomenal. Only thing I would change is maybe a little more cheese on both and more jalapenos on the JSM.
