I'm waiting for my duck jerky to cure and have a pork loin curing for canadian bacon.

With this down time I decided to give my first fatty a go. I'm attempting to make an "ABT Fatty", I hope it turns out!

The ingredients:


Fatty rolled and ready for the smoke!


Prior to putting in my MES30 I sprinkled with my pork rub and intend to use apple chips for the smoking.

After about 2 hours of apple and cherry smoke....



I used 4 slices of pre-cooked bacon, half a brick of cream cheese and a few handfuls of shredded cheddar. Next time I'd add more bacon, less (thinner slices) of cream cheese and maybe a little more cheddar. There was a decent (perfect, in my opinion) amount of spice from the seeded sliced jalapenos. The apple and cherry smoke was perfect! Not too overpowering.

The bacon weave will be on my next one! I wanted to keep it fairly simple for my first one.

The flavor was awesome if you like some spice! Not too hot as I removed the seeds from the jalapeños. (My wife are it and had seconds, so I know it wasn't too spicy!)

The changes I will make for next time are:
Thin strips of jalapeños
More bacon or bacon weave
Thinner strips/less cream cheese
More cheddar or slices of cheddar.
