First Fattie

  1. Exciting day today, made a smoked salsa and also my first fattie! I went by this for a guide on how to roll

    seemed to work out pretty good. Didn't do anything crazy for the first time. Mild Italian sausage, with saute garlic, onion, green peppers and jalapenos then into a bacon weave.

    Rolled out, filled with cheese, saute garlic onions, green pepper and Jalapeno

    On the smoke with 2 baked potatoes.

    Still has about an hour left. Will post money shot pictures when done.
  2. Came out excellent. Bacon was not as crispy as I would have liked, anyone have any suggestions?

    AR22, Your fattie looks excellent. I always use thin cut bacon and lately after the smoke I give it a quick sear on the gas grill to crisp the bacon up.[​IMG]

    Looks good, I also fire up the grill and give it a quick sear to get the bacon done. Still never gets real crispy but no one ever complains and never any leftovers with a good fattie.

    Next time I would try brushing some canola oil over the bacon to help it crisp up.

    BTW, yer fattie looks delicious.

    Well, your first fatty looks great.  Nice bacon weave.  Looks like you can count this one as a definite success.
