Featured First attempt at fatties

Well, after seeing all the mouth watering pictures of fatties on this site I thought I would give it a go

First I wove up some apple wood bacon then put it in the fridge to stiffen back up

Then I rolled out a mixture of 60% ground beef and 30% seasoned pork sausage

Topped it off with the different kinds of cheese ( should have used shredded and stayed away from the edges)

Rolled it up (here was where I found out it's kinda hard to roll up stiff slices of cheese, and to get it to"seal" I had to take some of the ground mixture and go over the ends and seam)

KIMG1627.JPG Wrapped it up in the bacon weave and pot it in the fridge for the night

Put in on the grill over a two zone fire

About on hour or so later had a bit of a blow out

When internal temp hit 162 I crisped up the bacon over the coals IT got up to 165

KIMG1640.JPG
Tried to let it rest a bit so the cheese would run all over but I couldn't wait to try it

Turned out pretty dang good I thought
All in all it took around 3 1/2 hours at 225-250° to get 165° IT for a 3 lb fatty

I had since leftover meat mixture so I made a little fatty as well

Seasoned it up with my sweet rib rub

About 2 1/2 hours at 225-250° KIMG1636.JPG
This one was really tasty as well

Thanks for looking guys

That’s a good looking fattie my friend!
I get blowouts too, cause I just wanna put too much stuff inside.
It takes discipline to back off & just put just the right amount of filling in it.
Or my solution is to make a massive fattie with more ground sausage on the outside to hold all the filling in.

Thanks guys! I definitely understand the hype now that I've had them, couldn't hardly get to sleep last night with all the different ideas for stuffing ingredients lol
I'd say you nailed it. Blow outs happen. Nice job

I still haven't made a fatty yet but I had to take a look. Yours looks pretty good to me.

Now that does look GOOD!!
Anytime I make a fatty, there's always a blow out. Afraid I'm like Al and just don't know when enough is enough.

Blowouts are part of the fatty life. Always overstuffed.
Yours looks real good.

You sealed it up perfectly but fatties have a mind of their own sometimes. Nice job! Like!
