My weekend fattie

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Sorry no Q-view, I am horrible at remembering to get out the camera when I should.

My second attemt at a fattie was this weekend. My first was a few weeks back where I had done a standard pizza fattie that turned out really good, but was a little rich for some people and was more of an appetizer than a meal. My goal for this one was to make a meal out of it.

I went shopping with my fiance for ingredients, telling her that we would try to make a milder one. We settled on the outside being a 50/50 combo of ground pork and ground beef. For filling, we decided to coat the inside with a peach mango salsa (not my kinda thing, but for cooking though it might be ok) caramelized onions, and mexican 4 cheese belnd.

Forming it was a little more difficult than the sausage was, but that may have been because I did a bigger one at 2 lbs. It took about 4 hours to smoke it.

Brought it down to a neighbors house for dinner since he is laid up after surgery and has been eating hot pockets or other nasty stuff all week. The combination of flavors was excellent with the fruity salsa lending both a nice tart and a little kick, and the onions were very sweet. It made a very good meal and my neighbor ate about half of it in one sitting.

I am glad I finally tried these since you really can do just about anything with them. I look forward to experimenting more, and hopefully providing some pics next time.

Sounds pretty good, shame no pics...
My camera died on me last night right after I cut into some fatties, luckily my sister and her husband were there and she had her camera handy.

I used my cell phone to chart the progress of my smoke over the weekend. I stinks of charcoal now because the lower half is rubber. icon_biggrin.gif

I suppose the cell phone trick would work, especially for pics posted on the internet since you don't want them too big. I just get so into things when I am cooking that the camera is the last thing on my mind, especially when my hands are covered in raw meat. I have had requests for anther one, so I will be making one soon and will do what I can to give pics next time.
