My First Fatty

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Since Miss Linda went to Calgary this weekend for her father's 80th birthday (or else he would have been alone--none of her siblings seem to care), I get to cook whatever I want.  And I wanted a Fatty--been thinking about making one for a long, long time and the time just seemed right.

 

Rolled out the meat in a ZipLock bag

 

 

 Dug out some spices and fillings--chile pwdr, garlic pwdr, cumin, thyme (for the shrooms), basil (for the tomato), S & P, tomato, onion, mushrooms, very old cheddar cheese, a couple of heavily smoked jalapenos I had in the freezer, and very old cheddar cheese.

 

 

All rolled up and into the fridge to firm up.  Note to self--either use fewer fillings or way more meat!!  Couldn't fit everything in.

 

 

 

2 hours at 240*  with apple pellets in the AMNPS.  Pulled it at medium, bacon cooked but not real crispy.  Looks like my bacon weaving could use a lot of help.  That means I'll have to practice, practice, practice, sigh.  LOL

 

 

 

Medium, very juicy, and tasted GREAT!!  Nice bite from the smoked jalapenos.

 

 

This might have been my first fatty, but I'm hooked--it won't be my last.

Just a quick note of n the bacon weave. Thin cut bacon, stretched works the best. Lay a piece on you cutting board and run the backside of a butter knife along it. The piece will almost double in size. Do this for all your pieces then make your weave. I like to lay my fatty diagonal on the weave roll and tuck the ends like you are makes my a burrito. Check out this thread to see what I mean.

I checked out that post and I really like the diagonal weave--looks great. I couldn't decide what to do with the ends and just ended up folding them over in a very unartistic manner. I'm going to try that next time.  Thanks. 

 

Just reread your post.  Missed it first time.  Thanks for the points.

I never thought to put sausage in it. Looks amazingly delicious!
