    The other day, my son Albert took a look at CAJUNSMOKE13's Italian fattie and was in awe.....had to try one too!

    An "all-meat, carnivore fattie!" he said; so here we go....

    The goods~

    He did a kickin' job rolling it out then started to layer with Genoa Salami-

    Next up was dried italian salami-

    Final layer was Pancetta. He had never tried this before and when he ate a slice, his eyes lit up and he exclaimed "This is now my favorite meat!" Pancetta really is good stuff, and it's great to see kids try new things-

    He weaved a bacon blanket just as good as Wendy did two days ago. They have raised the bar, and Dad better get with the program and learn to weave!

    Onto the smoker over Cherry wood at 325 F while smoking a turkey. Here is the Fattie all done-

    And here it is sliced and close up. Real good stuff, and probably one of the better fatties we've made. Highly recommended and a big thanks to CAJUNSMOKE13 for the idea.-

    Hope you have enjoyed my teenager's cooking!

    Wow, that is a great looking fattie. I can almost taste it!
    Your son did a great job, glad they are learning so much AND eating well, not to mention trying some new things as delicious as pancetta.
    Points to Albert for such a great job.

    Rivet, my man, my man, my man, great looking fattie, I can relate to your plate, we've got 18 outside and one inside. Belle has to be close to me when I'm preparing food, she doesn't touch or anything, just watches.

    Showed your plate to Mrs. JPT, she liked the fattie idea, but said she's gonna make a plate like yours only written in French. LOL

    Eighteen cats? OMG!

    We have 5 "full time cats" (3 indoor, 2 outdoor) and 2 "part-time" cats (outdoor) that come around occasionally. Usually for the buffet. [​IMG]

    Glad you liked the platter! We got it for a present one year, it's got an image of a black cat lounging on the center, where the food goes. Looks just like one of ours.

    I'd love to see your wife's platter when she's done....please don't foget pics. [​IMG]

    Nice job getting the kids involved...I too love pancetta, and layering it in a fattie is a great idea. I also love Cherry wood smoke...nice choice! [​IMG].
