I smoked a fatty and a chicken last week a was reasonably satisfied with the results, but hope to do better in the future. I chose to smoke a chicken as a trial run before attempting a turkey, possibly for thanksgiving, but I wasn't quite pleased enough with the results to tackle a turkey just yet. Not sure if it was the wood I chose (mesquite) or temperature.
For the fatty, I first sauteed some mushrooms, onions, and garlic.
I mixed a pound each of ground beef and chicken Italian sausage together then rolled it out. I put layer of pepperoni, the sauteed mixture, black olives, tomatoes, smoked cheddar and some mozzarella.
I rolled it up which was a bit of a challenge since I had so much ingredients in the middle.
Rolled it onto the bacon weave then put it in the fridge for the next day.
I intentionally put the fatty over the chicken to drip its bacon deliciousness all over the chicken. I added some rosemary and sage beneath them just for fun.
My next smoke will be with the AMNPS I just received. I can't wait to try it out!
