    Well I finally did it. Smoked my first fatty. I used hot sausage, filled with red, yellow a and green peppers. Onion, garlic and provolone cheese. I was a little nervous since this was the very first one that I've done. Next time I will use sweet Italian sausage next time. And mor cheese. I think most of the cheese cooked out on the grate. Lol. And I will try to seal the ends a little better next time. I guess that is all a part of the learning process. Here are the pix....

    Sautéed the onions and peppered a bit.

    I must admit, I was pretty proud of my bacon work. Lol.

    Before and after...


    And now for the money shot....

  5. Looks good and really tasty.  I had the same problem with the cheese melting out.  Next time I plan to wrap bacon around the ends before I wrap the log with the bacon weave. 

    Yep, it's a learning process.  And a real tasty one, too!

    Caution: cooking fatties is addicting, I cooked my first fattie a little over a month ago and have cooked one every weekend since. Great job!

    I could not agree more with Kapdon.  My wife even asks me to make them. 

    Nice job and beautiful bacon work!  Now you need to make your own bacon to use on your fatty.  Then you will have a second addiction.  lol

    Looks great!! Definitely is on my "to do" list!!!!![​IMG]
     
  16. Been wanting to do one for a while now myself. Is 5 pounds of meat too much? Or about right?
     
  17. Great looking Fatty!

    jeffrsports, a 5 lb fatty would be ginormous, not to say that's a bad thing, but you would have a hard time making a bacon weave large enough. Most fatty's are made with a single package of bacon and a 1lb chub of sausage (or ground of your choice).

    Bluto,  I agree that a 5 pound Fatty would be and I quote "Ginormous".  But who isn't the least bit curious to see what it would look like.  It would have to be either be 5 feet long or have the diameter of a basketball!  lol  If my smoker would fit it (that's another concern) I would try it the next time I have folks over.

    1 lb ground chuck is enough.  good luck.

    Thanks guys for all the good comments. It's been about 2 weeks since I made that one. So now I think it's time to do another one. This time I think I'm going to use Italian sausage instead of breakfast sausage. I don't know what I'm gonna fill it with yet.



    Thanks again.
