My first fatty!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I'd never heard of fatties before i joined this forum 1 week ago. Most of the fatties ive seen in this forum, i want to try
This is a copy of the "italian fatty", but slightly modified

Sausage meat (50% mild 50% hot)
Red pepper
Orange pepper
Yellow onion

Im fairly new to smokers
I have a napoleon apollo 3 in 1 water smoker
This is only my 3rd time using a smoker. Ive never been able to get the internal temp over 190 degrees, but the previous times i used it. This wind was fairly strong. Also, today its predicted to thunderstorm:(
I have a spot where the smoker will stay out of the rain and most of the wind
But i'll listen to any advice i can get!

Factory therms are notorious for being very inaccurate. Check another therm in boiling water and see if it reads 212. Put that in your smoker and see what your temp is. You may want to check (a sponsor here) and look into the maverick et732. In doing a chicken right now the therm on my smoker says 285 and my maverick( which I know is accurate) is reading 356.

They do look good.  Was the bacon crispy?

The bacon was still pretty juicy

I had reached an internal temp of 164..ish so i pulled them off, wrapped in tinfoil and let rest for 20 minutes.

Today i picked up the maveric dual prong thermometer.
(The only place i could find it in edmonton was BBQ country)
As it was only my 3rd or 4th time smoking, the guess work was too stressfull.

I had around 10 people over (most of which are "foodies), all went back for seconds! And many took pictures of the fatty.

Some were making new names for it like "bacon kinder surprise" or "russian doll of bacon"

No one got sick! lol

My wife an i are talking about doing a festive fatty with turkey, cranberry, and stuffing;)

This forum is incredible for a newbie like me. Im going to be involved for a long time! Thanks for the help everyone!

These are so fun to make and a huge show stopper. Much easier then they look for any new comers who are hesitant to attempt

Also, if you run into trouble, post in on SMF, the instant responses are amazing. This community is tight!

I cant wait to do my next fatty.
