Fatty blowout - how to fix?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have a well packed fatty (rotel, onions, maple syrup, cheese)...haven't put it on yet but it has some very thin spots and I'm afraid she'll blow out when I smoke her. I've put it in the fridge and freezer and worked it a lot so I'd guess unrolling and starting from scratch is out. Stole from meatier places but it's almost a futile battle.

Any advice on how to beef up the weak spots?

I've always tried to pick from the thicker spots and leave the thin side up. You might try some bacon in those spots.

Wrapping in bacon will help hold it together but the bacon takes most the smoke...

What he said. But I would also lay the bacon sparingly and tie with butcher's twine. The twine will hold things together. The bacon will keep the twine from cutting the loaf; in addition to adding bacony goodness.

Yeah...got overzealous but really more like 3# in a 2#...she's a monster.
I'll try to fashion a few band aids outta bacon.

You can also use some roasted red bell pepper strips. They will add moisture and dry out as they smoke acting like a band aid.

Boy, I'm not sure about that. I'm just now getting over the discussion on the "poop tube" sausage casing thread we had some time ago. Yea, I'm gettin' that uneasy feelin' again!PDT_Armataz_01_09.gif
