My first "Heart Attack on a plate" I mean Fatties. (w/heavy Q-view)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

As I stated in my post on the Roll Call Forum.  I originally found this site while researching how to smoke a Pork Butt.  When I found out about this thing called a Fatty I got a little side tracked.  Anything with bacon and sausage has to be tried.

 

I was reading Jeff's write up on fatties and decided to try something similar to what he suggested with some modifications.  I also decided I should do a couple so I wasn't wasting good heat on 1 little item.

 

I followed all the directions on rolling out the sausage and weaving the bacon.  Then for the first one I sauteed up some Onions, Green Pepper and Mushrooms.  Filled the sausage with that and a heaping helping of shredded Sharp Cheddar and rolled it up.

For the second one I decided to try a Fatty version of a stuffed round steak I like.  It has spinach and sliced olives with Feta Cheese.  I decided to also put in the thinly sliced beef as well except rather than round I used sirloin tip.

Here they are just set on the heat.

And just taken off the heat.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, smokingmeatforums.com for introducing me to these delicious creations.  I'm sure my cardiologist thanks you as well.  LOL!

 

I'm willing to take suggestions on the next stuffing I should try.  I think next time I will also try to find a way to crisp up the bacon at the end of the smoke.  Any suggestions on how to do that.  Frying pan? BBQ?

Really nice job on the FATTIES, I like your choice of flavors. It's all good my friend.

Great looking fatties!  Try a blow torch on the bacon to give it a quick crisp.  Chef's use it on Creme Brulee!  It works for me.

wow those do look good, I like the thin sliced beef on the inside, great idea!

 

I like my bacon the way it comes off the smoker so I never gave it any thought, but blow torch sounds reasonable!

Dude excellent fatties, nicely done and good choice of fillings. From the pics it looks like the bacon was cooked perfectly. Was it a little chewey?

I personally liked the way the bacon was cooked.  It was a little crispy on the outside and no so much on the inside.  My wife, however, doesn't eat bacon unless it is crispy.  Hmmmm?  Maybe that means I get to keep them to myself.

 

The blow torch method seems like my kind of cooking though.  I'll have to give it a try.

I have yet to try making some of these....and after seeing yours, I really need to try it out.....but, I read somewhere on here that some people put 'em in the oven broiler to crisp up the bacon after taking them off the smoker.

 

Blow torch sounds a lot easier and quicker though.

Man that looks good !

Those look great, you can crank up the heat towards the end, I dont know what kind of smoker you have. You can also just crisp them up in the oven if need be.

I have an offset smoker.  I actually did, inadvertently, crank up the heat toward the end. raised it about 100 degrees from 225-250 up to 350 for about 30 minutes.  I wonder if that is why some of the outside was a bit crispier.

 

Of the two I did I think I liked the sirloin-spinach-feta one the best.  The sirloin gives it a really good flavor combined with the bacon and sausage plus you can't go wrong with feta.

You did right by cranking up the temp towards the end, nice job. I agree , the sirloin fatty sounds great, if fact I have some room on my smoker tomorrow for one.

It sure does look like you have been making the fatties for a long time they look so good. Now yes it's not really good for you but it taste soooooooooo good it's worth it I guess. now my heart doctor hasn't had one I don't think they have theses things in India. But my family doc loves them himself and the wife's baby doctor thinks I need to smoke some tofu or something healthier. But your fatties are sweet looking and I bet they taste really good too.
