I smoked a fatty today

So I started with 3 lbs of 50/50 ground pork and ground beef. Placed 1.5 lbs in 2 gallon zip locs. Hit them with a rolling pin and closed the bags once all the air was out. Placed them into the fridge to stay cold.



Then I halved some serranos, and red, yellow, and orange sweet peppers and roasted them under the broiler, peeled the skins best I could and chilled



While the peppers were roasting, I sautéed some mushrooms in half a stick of butter then chilled in fridge.



Next up was the stove top cornbread stuffing. Forgot to take a pic but made per directions and chilled.

Next i covered the table in saran wrap, which I'll make the bacon weave on and use the saran wrap to help roll it up when the time comes



Now that everything has chilled, time to start the construction. First was the bacon weave



Then I cut the zip locs open and connect the 2 pieces to make one long piece of meat. Leave the ziplocs underneath to help when it's time to roll.



First layer was 15 pieces of thin sliced Swiss cheese



Then the cornbread stuffing



Then the pepper/mushroom mixture



Then the most important part, getting a nice tight roll, after rolling I pinch the ends shut





Then used the saran wrap to roll the bacon on and wrap up tight and into fridge





Then I fired up the yoder ys480 to 220, It was a balmy 10° outside with windchill in the negatives





Off to work I go, monitoring with tappecue



Once it got to 150, I headed home from work. Was at 155 when I got home



Slathered it with a little sauce, then under the broiler til I liked the color



Rested for 20 minutes. Then sliced it up

That's a beauty !  I like the mix of ingredients, and the cornbread sounds like a great idea.  I will try that on my next one.  Point from me !

That is one of the best looking fatties I have ever seen!

Not only is it a monster, but I really like the ingredient mix!

I hope you make the carousel with this guy, it sure deserves it!

Point!

I've never seen this before. This looks fantastic. When I saw the title, I thought of something else, for the first time in 40 years...LOL.

I can't believe that thing stayed together!  Fattie-saurus!  Looks great.  How was it?  I can't imagine.  

I haven't made a fatty in more than a year.  I'm inspired!
