    I needed an outrageous idea for a BBQ contest on another website so  my wheels started turning. My obsession with all things BBQ has led me to a freezer overflowing with vacuum packed projects and experiments and I decided to combine them into one monster of a fatty.

    So here are the cast of characters, all homemade/cured/smoked/processed, etc.

    Smoked Maple brined pork loin (1/4 lb.)
    Smoked roast beef (1/4 lb.)
    Home cured and smoked ham (1/4 lb.)
    Smoked Brisket (1/4 lb.)
    Smoked Tri tip (1/4 lb.)
    Smoked Pulled Pork (1/4 lb.)
    Smoked Pulled Chicken (1/4 lb.)
    Smoked Pulled Lamb (1/4 lb.)
    Home cured and smoked Chopped Pastrami (1/4 lb.)
    Homemade and smoked Texas Hot Link (2 -1/4 lb. links)
    Homemade and smokedKielbasa (1- 1/2 lb link)
    Smoked Baby Backs (deboned) (half rack)
    Smoked Irish Gouda Cheese
    Homemade pork breakfast sausage (4lb.)
    All wrapped up in home cured and smoked bacon (1.5 lb.)

    *All amounts are estimates and I am guessing I added a little more than mentioned above.

    The cast of characters waiting for their chance to participate:


    Spread out the sausage in a huge ziploc bag:


    Very gingerly cut the bag and flopped the mass of sausage onto some parchment paper:


    Then, the assembly begins:














    Wrap it up in some saran wrap to shape it a bit better:


    Got the Weber 26 set up to cook at about 300


    Wrapped it up and stuck it in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm it up a bit!


    Then, I gave it a bacon drape as opposed to a weave.  I am not a big fan of the under pieces of bacon that stay flobbity.




    And into the smoke it goes on a rack for easy transport.  This thing probably weighed 10-15 pounds.  Used a combination of hickory and cherry chunks.





    Some cooking shots:




    My atkins diet dinner since I couldn't cram it  all in the fatty hahaha



    Took it to 155 IT:



    And now a long rest on the counter...the anticipation was killing me:




    Bacon was a little darker than I would have liked but it tasted good.

    After what seemed like forever, I sliced it up:














    Believe it or not, it actually tasted really good.  I was worried about it being too salty but that wasn't the case.  This was a lot of fun and my friends on Facebook are having a great time trying to get the naming rights hahaha

    Well thanks for looking!

    First of all wrapping it up & keeping it together deserves Points!

    The bacon looks perfectly done. 

    It's just awesome!

    Great job, Chris!

    Thanks so much Al!  That means a lot coming from a fatty master such as yourself.  Hahaha rolling it and reshaping was definitely the hardest part.  The two sausages were originally under the the ribs and they some how got shifted in the shaping process.
