Our first attempt at Fatties. We had 1 lb of very lean hamburger and 1 lb of Jimmy Deans original sausage. My wife chopped onions, carrots, celery in small processor. We made two types, each wrapped with two strips of bacon.
Veggies - Mango Salsa - Mozerella cheese
Veggies - BBQ sause - Cheddar cheese
We made 4 beef fatties, two with each mixture.
We made 5 sausage fatties, with 2 salsa & 3 with BBQ.
Forgot to take photos of the assembly. They were a good size for a meal portion.
Heated MES 30 to 275 F and used hickory. We put them in basically a cold smoker and turned it on. They took over an hour to reach 160F. We were not sure what to expect from them, this is the second use of the smoker. The meal came out way better than the first try using a chicken and apple wood. The smoke vent was 1/2 open and had perfect flavor. Used BBQ sauce on them, and I put a little zip sauce on mine. Wife liked beef best, I liked the sausage better. Are considering a beef/sausage blend next time.
Here is a photo of the leftovers after dinner. We have dinner for tomorrow. I plan to put them on a low grill to heat them up.
Thanks for looking, and comments appreciated.
All the best!
