    well, due to the friendly encouragement of many members, here's my entry, which also happens to be my first fatty:

    i took three lbs of lean burger and mixed it with the following, pretty much making it up as i went along:
    • 6 slices of bread, processed into crumbs
    • 1 egg
    • 1 small can of sliced mushrooms
    • 1/2 of a large onion, chopped fine
    • 3 cloves garlic
    • 1 small (8oz) can of el pato (mexican "hot" tomato sauce)
    • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
    • 1 tbsp. pepper
    • a melange of herbs from my herb garden as available, including marjoram, oregano, savory, sage, thyme, rosemary etc., chopped fine
    • 3 tbsp worcestershire sauce
    i spread the mixture out on a wide cookie sheet on top of a layer of waxed paper, spread 8oz of shredded cheddar cheese across the top of the mixture, leaving the edges without cheese, then carefully rolled the whole thing up cinnamon-roll style. i pressed the ends together to seal set the chub in the fridge overnight wrapped in waxed paper to chill and firm up.

    i put it on the "warm" smoker at 1130 PM this morning. at 3 lbs, i expected it to be done at around 1530, but it was closer to 1700 before it was done as the temperatures started to drop. the last hour it sat for quite a while at 140 degrees before i brought it up again.

    the preparation was mostly a matter of leaving it alone; gowever, i did baste it with some extra virgin olive oil now and then and, keeping with the "mexitalian theme, i also basted it with old el paso's mild taco sauce for the last hour. it turn out with a good dark color, good smoke ring and overall good flavor. it was a little bit too spicy (from the el pato) and a little bit too smokey and there was a little too much onion, but other than that, it was pretty dang good!

    here's a bit of Q-view eye-candy. it wasn't quite as dark as it looks in the pix, but close:




    the cheese turned out great! i was worried that it might glop up or melt away, but everything was fine. a sharper cheddar would ahve been better but would have put things out of balance as sharp cheddar is not really italian.

    i think that this could be refined a bit in future Qs to something pretty good. if anyone tries this using the recipe above, i suggest cutting back on the onion, mixing the breadcrumbs separate from the onion and using tomato sauce instead of el pato. let me know how it goes and if any improvements/modifications turn out a more interesting end result.

    I wasn't going to enter then I had an idea today. Fatty's are for breakfast right?

    I have alredy done one with 4 mexican cheese and green chilis, one with a whole bratwurst and cheese and green chilis.

    My idea is this, what goes better with breakfast sausage than PANCAKES and maple syrup?

    Well, I rehearsed it in my head today and how I would pull this off and this is what I have come up with.

    I bought over 1 pound of bulk breakfast sausage along with 1 pound of Apple Chicken sausage it has a small amount of chopped apples and cinnamon for seasonings. I knew the Chicken was drier than straight pork. So I layered them and made a 10x 10 pancake and stuffed that in along with some maple syrup. Did you ever flip a 10 ' x 10' pancake?


    This was the pork sausage.


    This was the apple Chicken sausage.

    I used a 10 x 10 cast Iron skillet for the mold with plastic wrap.


    First layer was the breakfast sausage.


    Second layer was the apple chicken sausage.


    Third layer was the pancake smothered in maple syrup.


    This was all wrapped up thanks to many here.


    On to the smoker!!


    After an hour I srpitzed it with apple juice and Triple Sec.

    I used mesquite lump and hickory. I didn't use any rub accept maple syrup.

    Here is the finished deal.



    Sliced and done yum.

    I had one more pick with it slced with the maple syrup on it but I exceeded the limit of the forum and it was erased form my camera. It was a bomb.

    Hey, it isn't exocitc but it is breakfast!! Sausge, pankakes, maple syrup. Just add some eggs.

    Thanks everyone for watching!

    first off I got all excited and forgot yo take pics of rolling the inside out zucchini stuffed fatty.I cored out a fresh picked zucchini and sprinkled my rib rub inside then stuffes with jack and cheddar cheeses. I layed out 2 slices of my loved blu jack and put the zucchini on the blu jack. rolled and wrapped in bacon (smaller fatty with bacon rolled around fatty)

    The turduckin fatty started with turky sausace then some cornbread oyster dressing. I had some left over smoked chicken so it went over the cornbread stuffing. Then a wild rice stuffing and then the duck over the rice stuffing. I went to the chinese restaurant around the corner and bought some breast and thigh meat and diced it fine. the center is dried cranberries, after all gotta have cranberry sauce with turkey! I basket weaved the bacon for the turducken. I'm gonna do this for Thanksgiving as an appetizer but use a chicken thigh and uncooked duck breast. Here's the first of the pictures.

    I'll do a post for each of my 2 fatties. the first is the inside out stuffed Zucchini fatty fresh out of the smoker plated and consumed.
    1 7" long fresh picked zucchini, hollowed out
    mixed cheddar, jack cheese
    2 slices blue jack cheese
    1 pound JD pork sausage

    wash the zucchini then with an apple corer, remove the center of the zucchini to create a tube. pack with grated cheese. Roll out 1 pound sausage roll like any other fatty and freeze for 20 minutes. Remove sausage from freezer and lay 2 slices blue jack cheese on one side of sausage. Next, lay the stuffed zucchini on the blue cheese slices near the outer edge of the sausage. roll and chill in freezer to firm up for 20 more minutes. Smoke at 250 degrees for 2 hours 15 minutes with almond wood. Serve with Italian style diced tomatoes. I smoke fattys in aluminum pans to keep the grease to make delicious gravies!

Layer rice and nut stuffing over chicken starting from center of sausage roll, working to the edge leaving some of the chicken uncovered near the edge. Lastly, mound the duck across the center of the roll and top the duck with cranberries. roll and wrap with bacon then seran wrap. place in freezer 30 minutes to chill. Smoke 2 hours 30 minutes using almond wood at 225 degrees. Save the fats and juices by smoking in a pie tin and using fats and juices for a very tasty and mild gravy!

    wow, I went to bed you guys went crazy. Everything looks great. Have some new ideas to try. Was actually thinking about a seafood fattie last night, guess I am going to have to definately give it a go

    Last night we cooked a fattie that was stuffed with homemade seafood boudin; crawfish and shrimp, spices, cream, brandy and parslied rice, wrapped in a roasted poblano pepper. The outside is ground venison mixed with ground bacon to get the bacon flavor all through the mix. Real tasty.

    This morning we cooked another fattie, or chub, for breakfast. Venison sausage wrapped around lightly sauted onions, mushrooms, potatoes, and bacon pieces. A toasted English muffin and some egg gravy should set it off nicely.

    We will post a couple of pictures this afternoon, when our son returns the cable for the camera.
