My wife is watching calories big time so I have to smoke foods to support her diet/exercise regime (she is down 56 pounds since January 5, 2016 - she is super serious about this!). This is the reason for my question about skinny fatties.
I have never made a fatty (yet) but it is on my list of things to do. Jimmy Dean sausage is 100 calories per ounce and ground chuck is about 60 calories per ounce...I was wondering if anyone ever tried replacing the sausage with well-seasoned ground chuck? Maybe I should use a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of ground chuck and sausage? Controlling the stuffing/filling calories is super easy to do so I am not worried about this.
Am I worrying about something that is not that important? How many slices does a typical fatty make? I would guess 8 to 10.
Any help would be appreciated.
