    alright, guess I'll be first.

    One of the favorites round this house is cheezy potato casserole. And since the bratwurst should go down in history as one of the best things man has made since fire,, I thought , the birth of the cheezzee tater bratty fatty should be a hit.

    I went and got a pack of original johnsonvilles, some extra sharp cheddar cheese, and some sliced potatoes. No seasonings added inside cause I thought I would do a little mustard and rub on the outside, instead of bacon, I think it will have enough fat in it already.

    Good luck to all, and most important,,,have fun

    Good Morning! I decided to make a Gyro Fattie from a recipe in one of my bbq books for gyro sausage. I'm smokin the farm on this one. The meat contains lamb, pork "for the flavor and moistness it gives the sausage", and beef. Some of the lamb was pre-ground, but I put the rest of the meat through the grinder. After grinding the meat, I gradually mixed in the spices. The meat is in the fridge now so the flavors can mingle together. I plan on rolling it up with tzatziki sauce and red onion, then serving on a pita with fresh tomato (decided not to put tomato inside the fattie, i think it will add some freshness with it on top). I will update this post with more pictures when the process resumes again. Look forward seeing all the fatties!

    Update: Regretfully I must throw in the towel. I made the gyro fatties last night and they turned out dry. Not exactly throwdown quality. I hoped to give it another go today, but I didn't have the time. I'm amazed at the fatties that have been made thus far, everyone has done awesome! Thanks to bbqgoddess for setting this up, you made a great throwdown and really brought everyone together for a great cause, FATTIES!. Thanks everyone!!!

    Guess I'll step on up! Played hookie today (cough, cough, groan) so I could get my fatties done - will be out of town early Saturday morning till mid Sunday afternoon. Got up early to place the sickness call, then got right to it!

    Got 4 going. Mixed sausage for some "binder" in the other-than-pork meats.
    - 1 lb hamburger, 1/3 lb JD sausage
    - 1 lb ground turkey, 1/3 lb sausage
    - 1 lb ground chicken, 1/3 lb sausage
    - 1 lb sausage

    Breakfast Fatty in the sausage

    Chicken Fajita in the chicken

    Greek in the turkey

    Philly Cheese Steak in the hamburger

    Rolled up...

    Bacon'd up, ready for the smoke...

    Hope everyone who's entering this has as much fun as I am! Even got my teenager involved! Sauteeing the peppers/onions/mushrooms he is.

    Details / ingredients will be on the final entry thread with the sliced pics. Good Luck to all and remember to cast your chants to keep the blowout demons at bay!
  6. Since this is my first fatty, I have an idea what Im going to put in it. But, I'll be finalizing my ingredient list later on tonight though when I get home from work and actually make it.

    Ill be taking pictures of it and letting y'all know what I put in it.

    I am however planning on smoking it with either Apple or Cherry for a nice fruity flavor or possibly maple.

    In an effort not to lose any points for lack of smoke ring, im trying something that was reccomended to me a while back on this site, lets see if it works. Added a few glowing embers to the bottom of my bradley.

  16. OMG! *pulls himself up off of the floor and mops the drool off his chair....quickly scans all of the posts again....and again....* Ok, somebody please tell me because I obviously missed it....how long do I cook these things, what kind of smoke do I use, do I apply a mop, keep it at 225? Details people, I need cooking details! Until reading this post I had never even heard of a fattie....er....well other than me. New guy with his stomach REALLY growling here.....*smiles broadly and nods repeatedly* I just showed these pics to my wife and she asked why I can't do that...as usual I shrugged my shoulders (that's why they are stooped). She was just asking if I could smoke meatloaf, but this looks much better. Same technique I assume?

    Now entering the ring...

    Cincinnati-style Cheese Coney Fatty
    Ground beef mixed with Cincinnati-style chili seasoning (we prefer Gold Star to Skyline, if you know/care about the difference), yellow mustard and onions (we prefer with both on our coneys), hot dogs, and shredded cheddar cheese.

    Chicken Cordon Bleu Fatty
    Ground chicken breast mixed with salt, pepper, and garlic powder; thin layer of dijon mustard; sliced baked ham; and sliced swiss cheese. I'm thinking of wrapping with BACON tomorrow morning.

    Spanikopita-Gyro Fatty
    Ground beef (wife said "no" to lamb...) mixed with minced garlic, onion powder, rosemary, and marjoram; fresh spinach; and feta cheese.

    The contenders are resting comfortably in the chill chest until tomorrow morning, and then it's THROWDOWN TIME!

    Rumor has it that another contender may enter the running in the morning. We'll keep you posted.


    First Hour UPDATE
    The charcoal bullet is overloaded. They're touching, but I don't think that will matter... much. Despite the load, the mods from last weekend are helping it hold around 250.

    Last Hour Update
    They're all hitting their final temps. Chicken's a little low; so I've transfered her to the electric (as the charcoal is starting to drop after four hours). Slicing and plating pics up tomorrow.

    If the first few fatties are any indication, this is going to turn into one heck of a fatty free-for-all. So, keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times and try not to drool on that center rail!

    So far, so good! Let's see some more!
