    I'm getting ready to do my first fattie, and my first multi-meat smoke. I'm planning on firing up the smoker (Smoke Hollow propane) this week to do a chicken, and thought I'd throw on a fatty as well.

    For meat, I've got about a 1/4 pound of Bob Evans breakfast sausage (original), 1 pound of sweet italian sausage, and 1/2 lb of hamburger. (I do have some more bob evans in the freezer if needed, and don't need to use everything) I've also got bacon!

    I think the italian sausage in a calzone w/ bacon, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, and moz cheese.

    I'm also thinking that I need breakfast fattie. What would you recommend? Bob Evans wrapped w/ bacon, stuffed w/ hashbrowns and scrambled eggs. Once cooked, wrap the whole thing with biscuit dough and stick in the oven.

    Good plan? Bad? Improvements or changes that you'd make?

    Ok with what you have here is what I would do. I would use the italian and make your calzone fatty with that wrapped in bacon of course, then i would get more of the evans out of the freezer and use that for the breakfast fatty. also wrapped in bacon :) You might take the burger and just smoke yourself a couple patties for a lunch while the rest of the goodies are smoking. Take a bit of the mozz and stuff in the middle of the burgers for a tasty treat.

    That sounds pretty good to me and I'd like to see that end product. Alot of people do the blueberry pancake fattys to which is probably one of my favorites but then again you could put cereal in a fatty and I'd probably eat it.

    Sounds like a good plan, the Bob Evans with your fillings will definitely work.
    Personally i wouldn't wrap it in any dough and would just do the fattie, cut slices of it and then put that on a biscuit.

    I've started the Calzone fattie...

    Ingredients: Sweet italian sausage, pepperoni, green and red pepper, onion, bacon, mozzarella (I did add one more pc of bacon)

    In process w/ a little pizza sauce on top

    Rolled (very little spillage, we'll see what happens when I cook it!)

    I'm defrosting some more Bob Evans and will get the breakfast fattie ready before I go to bed. Smoking will be done tomorrow morning, so I can have the breakfast fattie for breakfast! Calzone for lunch and Chicken for dinner!

    Well your fattie looks good and all. I really like the fillings that you used too. But I hope I'm caughting you before you smoke theses things to tell you to make sure that you but the chicken on the bottom so it won't drip onto your fatties.

    Here's the breakfast fatty

    Ingredients: Bob Evans sausage, frozen hashbrowns, green and red peppers, onion, scrambled eggs, bacon. (DAMN, I forgot cheese!)

    Ready for bacon wrap

    Wrapped and ready to go

    I'll be smoking tomorrow (Chicken on bottom, thanks mballi!) Change of plans on the meals, so I won't be digging into them tomorrow. How do you re-heat a fatty?

    Fatties are awesome!! Breakfast fatty definately could have used cheese. Damn shame I forgot it as it was definately lacking. Calzone fatty was great. I think next time I won't use any sauce and will add it after as a dipping sauce, or just pour some over it.

    Out of the smoker (Calzone on top, pre-dough)...

    Wrapping the Calzone. Added some cheese and sauce.

    Ready for the oven (10 min at 400degrees) on pizza stone


    Just before first bite. Similar plate set up for my wife who gave it a thumbs up!

    Great stuff!

    The question remains, what's the best way to warm them up?


    ETA: Chicken...

    spiced apple sausage, peps/onions, baby portabellas, cheese....yumyum

  15. Great job. I have made the pizza fattie, but wrapping it and turning it into a calazone is really cool. I might borrow that idea, if you don't mind. Very good looking bacon on both!
