    This is a mixed smoke today. Trying my first lower fat fatty. I used a mix of 50% fat reduced JD sausage roll and mixed it with an equal amount ground turkey meat. Rolled it out, added some low fat cheddar and mozzarella cheese and some sauteed apple and onion.

    Also doing a meatloaf. It's a mix of ground turkey and ground chicken with some onion and garlic powder, ketchup, ground black pepper, oregano,egg and breadcrumbs.

    Since I don't want Debi yelling at me that I didn't fill my smoker :) I threw in some hot italian turkey sausages, and a few sweet potatoes. Next in will be some boneless chicken cutlets marinated in a lemon pepper mix and I'll finish it up with a turkey breast and some turkey wings which has been brining for a bit.

    Beautiful day here, just trying to enjoy the blue skies and the thin blue smoke.

    That's just a chunk of chopped up cheddar, I was too lazy to shred the cheese.

    I'd be kidding myself if I said this was low fat. It's just "lower" fat. Even the reduced fat sausages and cheese are full of fat, that's where the flavor is.

    Well it's all done except for the bird which went in a short while ago.

    I think the fatty was a success, very tasty despite the reduced fat.

    Looks great Ron! I love a full smoker! [​IMG]

    So how's the sweet taters on the smoker? Haven't tried those yet but I plan a sweet tater pie when they hit the farmers market!

    Did you make the hot italian turkey sausages? I don't think Ive ever seen them in a store.

    Hey Debi:

    I don't know about the sweet taters; they are part of tomorrow's lunch so I'll let you know. I was trying to figure out how to get more smoke into them without cutting them open. I just wound up piercing them like 20 times hoping to get more smoke penetration. I also used a lot more wood then normal for the same reason.

    The hot italian turkey sausages are from the supermarket; I haven;t ventured into sausage making yet.
