    Rush, rush, rush.... I hope these turn out good! Got off work after a double 11pm-3pm, tired as heck. Picked up some live bait for steelhead fishing in the morning and also some fatty stuff for a couple of breakfast fatties. So far so good, I think...

    ... getting a little nervous! Just checked on them and they've flattened out about 1/3 from their original diameter. IT 100°, hope they stay in one piece...

    Nice job Joe! The bacon weave looks perfect. So, how'd they taste?

    Looks good - they will lose some volume from the fat rendering out. You done good!

    Thanks Al! I didn't know what to expect since I've never made or tasted one before, but they turned out surprisingly delicious. My buddy and I each had a toasted-bagel  breakfast-fatty samich 6am this morning on our way to the honey hole. They disappeared like magic! lol..... and so did the fish!

    I sauteed red, yellow, orange bell peppers and a spanish onion, tossed in some salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes and some parsley. Scrambled a dozen eggs. Used JD mild sausage. Rolled out sausage, put on a layer of Kraft shredded (cheddar, monterey jack, asadero and queso blanco) cheese, layer of pepper/onion mix, eggs and another layer of cheese, although I did forget to put a second layor of cheese on one of the fatties. So, I decided to put a layer of cheese on the bacon weave before I rolled the fatty. Smoked between 225-235° until 165° IT then turned up the heat to crisp the bacon and that took it up to 180° IT.


    Thanks Bear!

    I was a little concerned that they may fall apart even though I rolled them pretty tight.

    [​IMG]  Only if I go and buy some.... lol  Not even a sniff today! Water conditions weren't all that great.....yeah that's it!

    Thank you for the compliments guys!  I'm glad I didn't screw them up!

    I have to agree Bear! Ever since I purchased my new upright freezer and smoker, quality of life has improved tremendously! What the hell was I thinking all them years!?! All I have to do now, is finish my gutted main-bathroom so I can also say goodbye to all that flavor, in comfort... [​IMG]
