Actually, I've only made four. After the second one, I got real tired of trying to piece them back together after tearing them and inerds falling out. What I did was stair at it and study it like I do a sick computer. I know, analyzing a fatty sounds kinda funky and a little unstable on my mentality behalf but ya know, it worked. LOL.
Did my first Fatties on New Years Day for brunch with friends and family. This is my first attempt at picture attaching to this website. I've had my CharGrill since Sept 2009 and have done spare ribs several times. Also did a pork butt and 3 hams for Christmas dinner. The fatties had red potatoes, cheese, onions, garlic and some of Jeffs rub. Everbody was very pleased with the results of all my smoking. Forgot to take pictures of the first steps making the fatties. Well I tried to post pictures but web came back and said my pictures were to big. So will try later after I fiqure this out.
Nice tutorial. Kudos to you for taking the time to write all this up.
I do mine fairly similiar. I skip the wax paper and just roll right off the ziploc bag. But seeing this I can see the benefits of using the wax paper and not fighting the sausage sticking to the plastic of the bag. Also, I don't roll in the Saran Wrap prior to the bacon application. I build the weave on the Saran Wrap and use the Saran Wrap to help me wrap the bacon around the fattie.
That's a good tutorial too. I was lookin real close scrolling down at how you were doin it and up popped this smile on you young-ones face. LOL It shocked me. That was cute.
Any how, I like using the wax paper. It seems like it lets me get a better roll out of the everything and hardly sticks.
Oh yea, I use to get the rolling of the eyes too. LOL
I smokem at 225-250 till they reach an internal temp of 160-165. I don't know who actually came up with the fatty idea but they need to be put in the prestigious "Smokers Hall of Fame." Hey, there's an idea, is there a "Smokers Hall of Fame?"
