fattie quartet

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

had a bit of a fattiefest one day, just for practice and to stock the freezer

100309_0375.jpg

ma mise - fresh basil & oregano, sauteed onions & shrooms, chopped garlic, sauteed red chard, pan roasted tomatoes (to get rid of excess moisture and concentrate flavor), sauteed pancetta bits; feta, provolone,mozz, cheddar.  plus dried spices & herbs-garlic powder, old bay, ital. herb mixture, CBP, salt, ? (sometimes I just grab somethinng at the last minute and sprinkle it on - it's all to one's personal taste, anyway)

greek influenced (needed kalamata olives-oops, I was all out) ground beef; fresh garlic, basil & oregano, seasoned feta, red chard and tomatoes

trying out some "less bacony" wraps. 

100309_0379.jpg

a pizza variation-fresh garlic & herbs, provolone, onions, mushroom, chopped green pepper, mozz, tomatoes

100409_0367.jpgless bacon; sprinkled seasoings on the inside of the wrap, to get it on the meat and bacon, before rolling.

100309_0376.jpgpizza no. 2 - a little bit of everything

 

100409_0370.jpg

cheezburger-garlic, onions, fried pancetta bits, green pepper, cheddar, tomato.  denser weave, since who doesn't like plenty of bacon on their cheeseburger? again, seasoned the inside of the wrap to get the flavors on the meat. oh, and thanks for the beer - mmmm.  just what I needed about then.

I didn't, I think the color may have come from the red chard stems, it was more "pink" that 1st day and faded some after.

thanks for all the kind words, everybody!

Those look GREAT!

 

Smoking wood type?

Smoker temp & time?

Internal temp at finish?

 

Sorry, but you make food look that good, you're gonna get questions,

Wow, Thanks!   I'm flattered to be asked...   I know this is important info, but being a noob to the forum, didn't want to go all long and wordy.

The wood was a combination of 2 oz each of cherry and cabernet barrel chips (from www.barbecuewood.com in Yakima, WA-lots of variety). They do sell sawdust, too.

I have a CSE, I didn't preheat.  Set the temp at 225 when the fatties went on.

Started @ 6:40pm, outdoor temp 59; pulled at 8:55 with IT of 169. That seems kind of fast, but should be correct.

 

The beer is a Deschutes Brewery Jubeale, just for any inquiring minds out there. The vodka is very tasty, but the fatties make a much better sandwich. It does make me smile when I open my freezer though. smiling even more now that there's good meats waiting there as well!

wow, what a fattie feast!

 

excellent Q view! 

 

and now i know i'm definitely going to have to try a Greek fatty!   thanks for the inspiration! 

 

i totally agree, fatties in the freezer make me smile too.

 

i'm amazed at how well they freeze and reheat directly from the freezer to the microwave. 

 

deliciousness is only moments away!

My son usually does fatties, and gives me some, but I'm gonna have to do some myself, after seeing yours!

Those pics look more than worthy to me.

 

You're only allowed one pic.

If you were to make more in secret, then put one of the Fatties on a plate, in a picture, with about half of it sliced in about 1" slices (showing that beautiful internal goodness), with the code words in the picture, and a good inviting description, you'd be right up there with the best of 'em!

 

Did you ever have a bear steer you wrong?

Those look great from here. Any one of them would be a worthy entry. Congrats on a great smoke

post #18 of 18

Dangit. I got my hopes up. Come on, your fatties are more than worthy! I've never made a fattie and I'm still gonna enter. It's all about the fun of it. I have already decided that no matter what my fattie looks like, even if it is like the poor little homeless fattie, I'm still entering!
