First Fatty v. Apple Pie! *Q VIEW*

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by irie, Nov 28, 2010.

  1. I was inspired by the apples and pancakes fatty so here is my interpretation of a sweet and savory apple pie fatty!

    For the Filling I just used 2 crumbled up hostess apple pies but for the most part this is a pretty basic fatty, jimmy dean sausage and bacon.

    Here is the whole process: 


    rolled out and stuffed!


    the weave applied




    and the money shot...



    Now I have to be honest... while all of the pictures of fatties I have been drooling over online the last few months were very impressive, I didn't really get it. Yes the idea of a stuffed sausage wrapped in bacon is awesome, but what is all the fuss about? well after taking my first bite, a light shined down from above, angels sang and champagne flowed from the heavens. Maybe I just got lucky on this one, but the combination of sweet and savory was exactly what we were aiming for and yet we managed to far exceed our own expectations.

    This was by far the best thing that has come off my smoker thus far and I cannot wait to make another.

    Irie, nice lookin' fattie, the fillings in fatties are endless.

    I am not sure if you are aware of this but there is one drawback with smokin' alot of these great foods, your waste line.

    Great job with the fatty. Keep them coming. 
  4. thanks guys! so farI have been fortunate enough to not notice a bigger waist line. But then again its only been a month, Maybe I should start keeping track of that too and see how much weight I gain over the next year! Fortunately everything is so delicious its well worth the sacrifice.

    I am still absolutely amazed at how good the fatty tasted, I never would have thought it would have turned out as good as it did in a million years. My gf and family are already asking me to make another haha.

    Looks really great irie !!!!

    If you're young, you might not have to worry about the weight---just be sure to burn it off while you're able.

    If you're not able to burn a lot off, just eat small servings (I know it's hard), and do a lot of freezing stuff.

    Got a vacuum packer???

  6. Beauty!

    Congrats on the fatty!

    I like how you called the bacon weave "a blanket of porky goodness"!

    Well done!
  7. sage advice from a wise smoker.... I am fairly young, (23) so my metabolism is still chuggin along at a pretty steady rate. How much longer it will do it for is anybody's guess, but until then i'm loving every bite!

    I don't have a food saver but I do have the handheld reynolds vacu-sealer that uses the bags with the valves on them. It seems to work pretty well for the amount of food I cook and it makes portioning left overs a breeze. I agree eating smaller portions is key, now if only I could effectively put it into practice I would be in business. haha

    Nice work on that fattie. Looks like it would taste pretty good!
  9. Thanks!

    Granted this was the first fatty I have ever tasted, let alone smoked I was really happy how it turned out. It tasted like Breakfast to me, and reminded me a lot of the flavor of dipping sausage in maple syrup, only way better because the syrup was apple pie.

    Love the combo of flavors. I am afraid of using the pies as the pastry would be a little soggy for me but the flavors like apple pie filling sound awesome

    Great job

    That is a good looking fatty but I do see one serious flaw.


  20. Reading your title before opening the page, my thought was:

    "Aw man, I have to choose?"
