My Neighbor and fishing buddy is undergoing kidney surgery tomorrow.
Taking him a couple of chickens and a Fatty as soon as the fatties come off the smoker.
Maybe I can cheer him up a little and give him something to look forward to
When he gets home tomorrow….Supposed to be out-patient surgery (laproscopy)….If he has to stay awhile I can always go get it and eat in myself LOL!

First time fatty thing here….Bob Evans (sage) 1#’rs…..hickory chips….going on 3 hours bout now

Here is the "Porn-o-Poultry"

If that does not make him feel better, then nothing will. Give him our best wishes.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Theresa.....those fatties are real spicey.....but addictivePDT_Armataz_01_19.gif ....Need to use them on pizza...or in a gravy on biscuits.....what do you do with yours?

Will be a repeat when the craving arises...most any time now icon_rolleyes.gif

I was surprised that the spices do not cook out...if anything they are more intenseicon_exclaim.gif

We use them for a bunch of different things Marvin, last weekend we did two kinds, one was Sage and the other was Italian...snacked on some waiting for the rest of the food to be donePDT_Armataz_01_03.gif .

With the leftovers, we crumbled the sage one into cheese grits(sunday tradition here) and the italian one I used in some penne alla vodka I made this week...I guess the possibilities are endless.

What flavor did you do today??

Here you go Illini, yummy,yummy stuff!!!!! I just substituted the ham with the sausage fatty crumbled up.

This is a recipe from food network that I have made many times and is a favorite.

1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2/3 cup vodka
3/4 cup canned tomato puree
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 pound cooked ham, finely chopped
2 drops hot sauce (recommended: Tabasco), or to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
1 pound penne
3/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

I also like to add chopped garlic.

Melt butter in a deep 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in vodka, bring to a simmer, and simmer for 4 minutes. Add tomato puree and cream and simmer, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in ham, Tabasco, salt, and pepper. Keep sauce warm over very low heat.

Cook pasta in 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water (1 tablespoon salt per every 4 quarts water) until al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water and drain pasta.
Add pasta to sauce and toss with sauce and cheese, adding some of reserved cooking water if pasta seems dry.

I will say this... if you try this be carefull with the vodka and a gas stove...I flame mine after I put the vodka in ( flame goes very high) but I gave this recipe to a girlfriend of mine and she darn near started a fire in her kitchen. PDT_Armataz_01_08.gif
