Holly Jolly Christmas Fatties w Jingle Kielbasas

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by wntrlnd, Dec 25, 2010.

  1. Merry Christmas, Forum Friends!

    I fired up the smoker to do a couple fatties for the family Christmas Party at my brother in law's house.  I think he's doing ribs.

    I'm burning lump mesquite charcoal for heat, and almond wood for smoke.  Here's a firebox shot:


    Here are the fatty fixin's.  The usual suspects: sausage from my local butcher shop, some Jimmy Dean Hot, baked potato, roasted red peppers, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, and smoked onions


    Didn't get a shot of the kielbasas before I put them on to smoke, but here they are after a couple hours of the thin blue.  There's a regular and a beef keilbasa, take your pick:


    Did I weave?  Indeed I did!


    I think there are some scenes missing.

    Anyway, here are the fatties in the smoker.  Notice the catastrophic O ring failure on the right side fatty.  Oh the humanity! 


    Hope you enjoyed the little Christmas Fatty View!

    Thanks for looking in!

    Sorry about the blowout, but it wouldn't keep me from eating it, and those kielbasas look way too yummy!!   Have a fun day with your family!
  6. Thanks, Arnie!

    Thanks, BarbeQueen!   It was a great party.  Everyone loved the fatty, and no one noticed the blowout.  Most people at the party had never tried (or even seen) a fatty, so I was happy to be able to spread the gospel of stuffed pork goodness.
