A Couple of Fatties and some SPAM Appetizers

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Had about 25 people at my house yesterday for little BBQ party.  I have a friend who's recently picked up the smoking bug and I've been helping him out via phone while he's been trying his hand at smoking.  So it seemed like I was due for a smoke myself and could introduce him and others to some new things beyond ribs and pulled pork.  Don't get me wrong.  I love ribs and PP.  Just wanted to give these folks a little something different.  So I did two 5lb Corned Beef Briskets, one 5lb bonless pork butt, four split chicken breasts, one breakfast fattie, one pizza fattie, and two cans of SPAM.  All this to be done on my 18.5" WSM.  Gonna be a full house!

Something they'd never heard of was fatties and smoked SPAM.  Most had never even tried spam.  So here we go...

 

Let's do the Breakfast Fattie first.  I started off with a 1lb chub of Jimmy Dean Regular Sausage.  I rolled it out in a 1 gallon zip lock bag and put it in the freezer while I prepped the filling

I diced up 1/2 of a small yellow onion, sautee'd that then added 3 large scrambled eggs with a splash of milk and set that in the fridge to cool down.

 

A did a mini weave with bacon.  Mini since I'm going to use 1 lb of bacon for both fatties.

Split down the sides of the baggie and lay it open

Layed down the onion and egg mixture

and then my secret that makes this fattie so darned delicious...smoked Gouda cheese.  It's tastes awesome and melts to a nice smooth consistency.  Yes, it's store bought.

All rolled up and moved over to the bacon

Ready to go take a rest until cooking time while I prep the pizza fattie

Here's the start of the pizza fatty.  Same sausage, same story getting it rolled out.  Now added some pizza sauce

a generous helping of Parmesan cheese

a bunch of pepperoni

I used Mozzerella string cheese thinking it would melt into a nice gooey mess in the middle.  I didn't melt very well.  I'll use shredded next time.

and some shredded cheddar

go take a nap with your friend the Breakfast Fattie

Foiled my Dudestramis and got the fatties working as an appetizer

WSM is packed.  I've got a 5lb butt on the bottom and 4 split chicken breasts.

Time to get the SPAM ready.  I did two cans of SPAM I did a cross hatch cut and sprinked with some rub

I threw those on the smoker for about an hour and a half.  No temps taken.  Just watched it until the cuts opened up like a bloomin onion.

 

The fatties hit 170 internal but the bacon was still pretty flimsy so I had started another batch of charcoal and dropped it in the Kettle.  I put the fatties in there to crisp up the bacon.

Looking fine if I do say so myself

and yes, i have really immature friends.  They couldn't resist the photo op

I could've made a dozen of these and it wouldn't have been enough.  Both fatties were gone in a matter of seconds.
I grabbed a couple of quick shots before they were gobbled up
Breakfast...

Pizza...

I swear I took a couple picts of the SPAM post cook, but alas I connot find them.  Anyhow, they went nuts over them.  One I left with just the rub and the other I drizzed in Sweet Baby Rays about 30 min before taking off the grate. 
 
Thanks for checking out my post

Great looking fatties - not sure on the Spam thing - tried it many times and just cant get into it. Maybe add some to pineapple and into a fattie might be OK

Thought I was the only one that had ever smoked Spam. I have never tried a rub on it. I slice it half way threw on one side, flip it over and slice half way between each previous cut, so it looks like a zig zag of cuts. Rub mustard in cuts and all over outside, stick a half ring of pineapple in each cut, and coat with brown sugar. Smoke it till it looks a little crusty and all happy.

 

Hope you don't mind me adding this to your thread, but couldn't resist seeing how you smoked some Spam.

 

Thanks for the Qview.

All looks good. +1 on the smoked spam. I tried a spam fatty once, I had to classify that one, not so good.

Thanks all.  I was just wanting to smoke a variety of stuff and the fatties and SPAM were great appetizers while we waited for the rest of the chow.  Found here...

Sounds interesting.  I don't like SPAM but my kids like it if it's smoked.  I was amazed at the way the party went after it.  Your version sounds better than mine.

My dad would fry it up and add a hard fried egg and cheese to eat and make a sammie out of that.  Had that on a few occasions as a kid when dad was in charge of cooking.
