    Well finally got around to making some fatties.  I decided to take the smoker down to the tailgate and treat the gang to some fatties and ABT’s.  No one had heard of either other than my buddies wife who said she had seen the fatties on TV sometime. 
    I rolled out all the meat prior and put into the fridge for a few hours.

    3 reg Jimmy Dean 1 Sage and 1 Hamburger
    First up the Pizza

    And the first time rolling it up!  Really pretty easy

    Then the Chili Dog

    Bacon Cheese Burger…with hamburger

    The Ruben

    And the Breakfast
    I tossed these into the fridge and started on the bacon weave.

    And finally all wrapped an ready for the game!

    Did up some quick ABT’s

    Wrapped in bacon and tossed in the fridge.

    No kidding my bride thought I was crazy when she asked what i needed and told her 5 lbs of bacon!

    Thanks Squirrel!  I have another one in the works for that!  The weave is pretty easy to pull off once you actually try it :)

    Man I got caught up in the momoment and never took a "gut" shot....pretty disappointed in myself for forgetting the money shot :(

    Good WIN for ISU man didn't see that coming!

    Ok so to finish up what I started.....

    Off to the tailgate!  Had the WSM set up and ready to go in about 40 minutes

    Tossed the goodies on!

    The fellas getting the tailgate set up...

    And let her go for about 3 hours

    Here are couple done ones and unfortunately I didn’t get around to taking any more pics as we started to devour!  But the crowd loved them all.  The Pizza was the slight favorite with the Rueben up there as well.

    I did the breakfast one on the Weber Performer this morning and man it was tasty on a Croissant.    Cooked much faster as the temp was around 400!

    Thanks for looking will be doing my throw down one this week at some point!
    Cheers Jeff

    Man those are some good looking FATTIES. Now doesn't anyone remember about the throwdown this month is the fattie. It's like everyone is making some fatties and maybe there's alot of entries this month too.

    Yo QDOG you sure that is your first time making fatties? They look like they came out great and nice assortment of fillings. Would've liked to see some sliced pics but i know how that goes. Hard to be the cook and document the process at the same time and once you put the food out the wolves attack. Of course thats the best compliment you could get when all the food dissapears. I hope you were able to grab a bite or two.

    Talking about jumping in feet first, I was thinking more like cannonball, all in at once. Man those are some good looking fatties, with a variety at that. All I can say is


    Good job.

  15. Hope you give mine a try. Can't wait to see more pics, you do good work my friend!

    Yep I have yours on the short list but I am in Tampa on biz right now and really won't have any time to get it made so it can rest for any length of time, overnight at best   thoughts?

    What a great smoke you had. The food looks off the hook - congrats man
  18. It doesn't absolutely have to rest, I just prefer it that way. If you make a big batch you can use some and then try it again later. Since its mostly vinegar its safe in the fridge for a good while.
