Smoked a Fattie

With the weather starting to warm up, -10 :laugh:
Thought it was time I smoked my first Fattie.
I used the pork I ground last week, and it was wrapped in a weave of bacon :evil:

Some pics
This was easier than it looked, will used better bacon next time.

The pork was seasoned and put in a ziplock, then rolled flat.

Stuffed with cheese, shrooms, onions, and more bacon

The top of the bag was trimmed off and the stuffing layed out

Rolled up with the ends tucked in

Wrapped in it's blanket of bacon.
The grey skys opened up and lit up the fattie :laugh:

The Fattie was put on for about 4 hours at 250 dome. Pulled at 170 internal temp. I used some cherry wood for smoke.

Sliced up

Served up with some eggs, very tasty.

Thanks for looking

    Nice looking fattie, keep up the picture posting and keep the smoke rising. :) The bacon weave looks like a job, of course I have not tried as yet.

    They are a little too tasty :evil:
  • First off, you get a medal for cooking in those arctic temperatures.

    The fattie looks awesome, one of the best I've seen! Keep up the good work, Shane.

    Believe me it looks great from here and I bet it tasted great too. :P

    I don't know if you have any leftovers and, if your a biscuit eater but, reheat in the skillet then put it in a biscuit. :woohoo: :P

    The bacon weave and finished fattie look totally awesome!

    Did you use a basic indirect route (i.e. plate setter) or do you have it on a raised grid?

    Keep posting the great cooks/pics!

    Gotta say that's the tasiest looking meal I've seen on here in a while. Way to smoke a fatty... what time was it? 4:20? B) B) B)
  • Mr HollowayMr Holloway Posts: 2,034
    Thanks Ken
    Yes, this was done indirect. :)

  • Mr HollowayMr Holloway Posts: 2,034
    Thank you Rebecca :)
    Everything looks better wrapped in bacon :laugh:

  • Mr HollowayMr Holloway Posts: 2,034
    Thanks Big Badger
    It's always "4:20" somewhere :laugh:

  • SmokeyPittSmokeyPitt Posts: 9,271
    I have bookmarked this and added it to my "things to eat after I give up on the new years diet" folder :P.

    That does look great. Did you use plain ground pork or some type of ground sausage product?

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • that's a thing if beauty!..... thanks for the inspiration!.... ray
  • Mr HollowayMr Holloway Posts: 2,034
    Thanks SP
    The pork was fresh ground that was seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and wine.

  • Mr HollowayMr Holloway Posts: 2,034
