A few weeks ago my wife and I along side 4 other couples go on a camping trip to the Idlewild California area. Having once been to this camp ground before, I well knew the limitations of BBQ and time! The wife and I received our camp assignment, which was to provide breakfast for 2 mornings for the camp site. HUH, I was hoping for Dinner - perhaps a Lamb Pojie, pulled pork, ribs etc... But Nah, Breakfast?! Should we do the same old Ron Bugandy San Diego breakfast burrito? Maybe some biscuits and gravy? NAH - How about a Man and Woman style Breakfast Fattie!!! Hell yea! The next problem was the logistics, my big old smoker was not traveling with but I did remember my buddy has the "trusty rusty" Weber kettle. By friend agrees that he should be on the testing/trial committee to make sure the fatties are up to snuff. So he brings the grill, and the wife and I get the fatties rolling.
The man Fatties consisted of:
Monterrey Jack Cheese
Sweet Bell Peppers
The Woman Fattie consisted of:
Half Egg/ Half no egg
LOTS of Goat Cheese
A few Jalapenos
Lots of mushrooms
Both were good, but have to play favorites... The man Fattie ruled!!!
Pictured is the Practice Round with the Weber before the Camping trip.
The standard Jimmi Dean Sausage
You got a Nice Weave there honey!
On the grill She goes!
Protected by indirect fire/flame the pan with apple juice worked out really well! Prevented burn outs nicely. Apple and oak wood strips were used.
This was with a little more than an hour into the smoke
At this point the interest was brewing, and the audience was looking for an ETA!
After telling them we need another 1.5 hours - a nap was in the works.
165 degrees, let's try it out!
It turned out great! No blowouts, great flavor and moisture content. The Weber is still the Champ that has stood the test of time!
