I smoked my first 2 fatties a couple of weeks ago and they were great! But Im going to Physical therapy now to recover from a surgery. After describing them to the therapist, he's intrigued, but is giving me crap in a ribbing way about the amount of fat in them. I tried to explain that most of it cooked out, but he was unconvinced. Now my thought was, at the risk of sounding sacreligous, has anyone tried using turkey bacon on the outside instead of pork bacon? Its hard to find good bacon at the store these days, and its getting pricey too. I've tried some damn good turkey bacon in the past and this would cut down on at least some of the fat. Just a thought! What cha think?
