Burger psuedo fatty - will it work?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys... thinking about doing a fatty with hamburger (Onions, peppers and cheese on the inside). 

 

My wife doesn't really do pork (except on the rare pulled pork event).

 

Can I do the roll and skip the bacon wrap? Will it fall apart? Thanks in advance.

Just my 2cents , but I think you'll be making meatloaf nothing wrong with that , but I would embrace it and cook it in a pan with maybe some bread underneath to soak up the grease ( or on a rack)
I think it could have all the good qualities of a fatty , but like you say , if you try to roll it it might fall apart. What the heck , the worse that can happen is it'll be a little crumbly....I bet it'll still taste good. Post some pictures , I'll be curious how it comes out. grilling_smilie.gif

Yes you can. If you search "naked fatty"  on here, people do it all the time with sausage. It won't fall apart any more than a hamburger or meatloaf does. Just be gentle with it when putting it in the smoker. I'd also use at least 20% fat content beef.

I have made them with ground beef a few times. I put cheese, peppers, onions and mushrooms. Always a hit here at home.

I'd use burger with the highest fat content you can find.  It's the fat that binds it together.  I tried one with ground turkey...couldn't roll it.  I'm not giving up on it...just need to rethink it.
