Well, I just assembled my fatty piston. I am planning on smoking 4 fatty's tomorrow to take to deer camp this weekend. I'm thinking here are a few combo's I'd like to try:

1. Corned beef hash (like in the fatty piston assembly thread)

2. Spinach, Mushroom, garlic, onion, and Feta

3. Chorizo, pepper jack, egg, jalapeno, onion, and bell pepper

4. Egg, Bacon, and Cheddar

Any advice? This is my first shot at fatty's. I am planning on using hickory and maple to smoke.

Those all sound great, your buddies are lucky!  I did one similar to your 2. fatty - came out super tasty.  There are some good videos of fatties assembly on youtube, as well.  good luck smoking and hunting.

I'm thinking I might have to smoke a 5th...or 6th. There's no way I'll be able to smoke these tomorrow and wait until the weekend to eat them!

Here's a few teasers...I had no idea how much work it would be to make these...all fun though. I ended up making 6 fatty's. In addition to the ones I listed above, I made a second corned beef hash one, and one with pancakes that I soaked in maple syrup, blueberries, and brown sugar. I got the inspiration for that on from the following post: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/99560/two-fatties-worth-viewing

Here's a few shots so far, tonights dinner is in the back right. 4lb Sirloin tip roast. Just pulled it at 140 and letting it rest.











MORE TO COME!!

My advice, heck you dont need my advice, looks like you got it under control.  As far as "flavors" the sky is the limit with fatties.  My families favorite is a chicken cordon bleu.  Ground chicken, ham, swiss & a bit of spicy brown mustard.  Good luck can't wait to see the finished q-view.

Thanks all.

Packaged them all up this morning, then couldn't resist, so I sliced one up; it was fantastic. I put the slices in the toaster oven for 10 minutes and it came out perfect.
