1ST FATTY EVER... DIDN'T WORK OUT BUT TASTED WICKED GOOD! Q VIEW

Well, 

I tried my first fatty ever.  Did it on the UDS.  Last night we had a B'day party for my brother in law and I was showing him pics of last weeks first ever smoke, and he made sure to tell me that he was not working today.  I invited him over for lunch.  I tried to go a little light by using turkey sausage...I think that was a mistake.  I also used WAAAAAYYYYYY TOOOOOO MUCH filling.. 

As you can see from the pics I kinda messed up... I guess less is more, is better than more is more.  I did add some chicken 1/4s and a few country style ribs as well.

Here are some pics



my turkey sausage rolled out



Added some cheese



added some hash browns



scrambled some eggs



rolled it up, wrapped in saran wrap



tried a little bacon weave.. i was feeling real good right about now!!!



wrapped the fatty in bacon and put in in the cill chest for a few hours



all on the UDS ready for a few hours in the Smoke



the finished fatty and chix 1/4s fatty split on top!!!



fatty cut in half



not a bad lunch....

So long as you didn't throw anything away, it was a great smoke.

If you eat it then there are no failures.

I agree with above that it looks tasty.

Nothing wrong with that meal. Just asking, why did you put the fatty on foil instead of on the grill direct.

I was worried about it splitting and spilling cheese all over the coals... So I put it on foil to catch any cheese that oozed out!

Looks good. Who cares if it splits, as long as it kept all the goodies and it tasted good. I like over stuffed fatties anyway!

Way nice! I think we've all had a fattie split before! Hey try some green chilis in that, you won't regret it!

i was going to try the ABT fattie w/ cream cheese and Jalapeno's but my wife thought maybe we should take baby steps at first.... also she is pregnant so I figured the Jalepenos might cause a revolt!!!

Seems this worked out well for you even with the split. That it opened up that way gave the cheese an opportunity to toast that way. Looks like the wife and you had yourselves a really nice meal today.

Just like everything else in life it takes practice but atleast you can eat it. After it goes to prove even the un-pretty can be really good to.

 It sure looks darn tasty!!  I also like the look of that oozy cheese on top!   Really nice color on the chicken, and you can't go wrong with csr's.  If you decide to try some peppers next time, or do some abt's, the trick of careful seeding, cleaning and soaking fresh jalapenos in milk is quite effective, in my experience.

Nothing like a good fatty explosion! Looks even more tasty with all that cheese on top.

You have to remember, Looks do not affect the taste only the looks...  If it is edible it is OK...
