lazy Friday so I'm trying my first fatty

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
The old lady left me home alone tonight so I decided to do some smoking. I didn't even hit the store til after work so I went with some short time frame items: brats, Bacon wrapped chicken bites and two personal sized fatties for my first attempt. The recipes were in a mews letter I'll link to later. Maybe I should get left home more often?

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

Bulk Ground Italian Sausage from my local Butcher

this one is filled with chedder and some left over fulled pork from my last smoke and a few lines of bbq sauce. The other one is chedder and green chilies

5 strips of bacon wrapped around each, then tied w/ butcher's twine

Loaded up with meat ready for the heat

Not a bad looking friday if I do say so myself.

I am in serious need of some smoking therapy. This just made it worse. Pretty sure I get to BBQ for my Fathers Day present. :P

Well happy father's day to you Carlos, sorry if I made the cravings worse, at least I kept the Summer Shandy out of the shot?

I just finished a 6 pack of the Summer Shandy last night.

Final overly ambitious dinner. It all came out amazing. Not bad for 4 hours after leaving work and all 3 first time efforts.

Well hey, a Ferndale member. I'm just up the road in Madison Heights. The chicken bites look fantastic, is that just cut up pieces of chicken wrapped in bacon or did you do anything else to it?

Late on today I'll be smoking some chicken thighs, a personal sized fatty or two, and I may have to add some of those chicken bites on there while I'm at it!

I found the Chicken Bites recipe here: http://www.smoking-meat.com/august-2010-smoking-rib-planks-and-chicken-bites its from the sister site and the personal fatty recipe is from here http://www.smoking-meat.com/june-13-2013-personal-sized-smoked-bacon-wrapped-fatty. For the chicken bites I just cut boneless, skinless chicken thighs into 1 inch pieces wrapped them in bacon and stab them with a tooth pick. then I put a little bit of rub on them and on the to heat. The rub was from the local grocery store because this was a last minute decision so it wasn't great but it was fine.
