first time smokin a fattie

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
lets not dig up my highschool years, besides I'm talkin a different kinda fattie!

I've seen a few of these things around on the net and figured I better try it. I made two of em, one for me one for the wife, mine had taters cheese onion and jalapeno, and hers the same minus the onion and peppers. It was a pretty successful first attempt and I learned what not to do the next time.

I did pre-cook the taters that were cut like fries, I cooked them in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes until the resembled half cooked fries. That part I would do the same again, along with the other stuffing choices. I did not do a bacon weave but more of a single layer wrap, I'm not sure more bacon would have made a noticable increase in cholesterol or not at this point, but I played it safe and will continue to do so until I work the bugs out of my Lipitor Icecream!!

What I would do different next time is use good fresh made sausage and not the greasy icky goo in a tube. I would also find a way to roll one out so that the thickness is even. I did see how to do that on here lastnight while I was lurking.

And here are the pictures

They look good. Any shots of them sliced open? The ziplock bag trick is the easiest way I have found to get the meat nice and even. The only bad thing is you waste a bag which my wife doesn't like especially when I use a good freezer bag. Buy some cheap gallon zip lock bags and you will be set. I don't bacon weave my fatties either I just wrap some bacon around it as I don't need any more cholesterol as my family has problems high cholesterol. Stop by roll call and tell us a bit about yourself so we can give you a propper welcome.
