1st Time Fatties - Fajita & Chicken Parm

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by gravymoose, Aug 9, 2015.

  1. I tried out my first fatties today with mixed success.  The big learnings were to 1. Not overstuff and 2. Use more meat?.  Basically I had a few blowouts which you will see.  So let's get to the plans:

    Fatty #1 - Fajita

    1 lb Chorizo (Base)

    21 piece bacon weave / holding bacon (Wrap)

    Stuffing

    2 large green peppers

    1 large onion

    1 cup colby jack cheese

    1/2 lb Carne Asada w/ Fajita seasoning

    1/2 lb Chicken w/ Fajita seasoning

    1/3 c Fritos (experimented with this on half)

    Started off by cooking the veggies, chicken, and carne asada and setting to the side. Then rolled the chorizo and layered with cheese - no problems yet.


    Added my veggies and meat. Starting to worry that it is too fat.


    Added some fritos for a crunch? Didn't really notice them in the final product.


    First bacon weave - not too bad.


    Post blowout -DOH!


    Recovered with extra bacon help!


    Fatty #2 - Chicken Parmesan 

    1 lb Ground Chicken (Base)

    16 piece bacon weave / holding bacon (Wrap)

    Stuffing

    1/2 c bread crumbs

    8 oz mozzarella

    8 oz cheese stuffed tortellini  

    1/2 c pasta sauce

    8 oz parmesan

    Less issues with this one -  below with break crumbs and mozzarella


    With the rest of the goodies in it - still haven't figured out the roll yet.


    Bacon weave helped with this too and the put in smoker around 230-270 (Thunder storms did not help with temp control) for ~3 hrs. Results were looking great.


    Money shot:


    Didn't have a chance to take a sliced pic as my friends gobbled it up in minutes. Taste was great and looking forward to trying more again soon.  Any advice is appreciated!
