My first fatty!

  1. So I had some pretty grand plans to get creative and make some kind of sweet and spicy fatty, but by the time I finally got around to constructing it, I was several glasses of scotch into an overnight brisket smoke and ended up throwing in whatever sounded good at the time. To the best of my recollection, this is what I came up with.

    1 package of maple bacon
    2lbs of pork sausage
    3 marisol chiles
    1 cup of of shredded, sharp cheddar
    caramelized onions
    a few cloves of garlic, sautéed
    and of course, extra bacon for the center, cooked until soft.

    Threw on a little salt and pepper for good measure, wrapped in plastic, and stuck it in the fridge overnight. Took it out the next morning to get a little closer to room temperature, then stuck it in the smoker at around 225 for 4-5 hours. It could have been taken off sooner, but my digital thermometer crapped out on me and I wanted to make sure it was completely done.

    My camera phone is pretty god awful, but hopefully everyone can make sense of these pictures.

    All wrapped up and ready to go in the fridge

    All in all, pretty happy with the results. The food turned out a lot better than the pictures, haha.

    Ha! Don't you hate that? You sure know what you're doing at the time but...Next day, just can't completely remember what you threw in. Sure it tasted good, I can actually make out a nice pink ring on the sliced pic, I think.
    Thanks for sharing, got me itching for a fattie now.

    Nice job! Thanks for the q-view, Beer. Makes me hungry. Also makes me thirsty.
  9. Thanks guys! I'd really like to shake the hand of whoever came up with the original fatty. They are pure genius! I blew a lot of friend's minds over the weekend....."you mean its WRAPPED in bacon, AND there's bacon inside of it?!?!". Ahh, good stuff. The only problem was that it went so fast, I only got one slice.

    Looks great and if you only got one slice it must have been good. Probably didn't hurt to have a "name" of Beer and then drinking scotch [​IMG]
