    I was flipping through the TV on Sat. morning and stopped on "Oneil Outside"  The guy had a bacon weave on the table and some meat in a bowl.  I could only assume one thing.  He proceeded to place the meat,add-ins mixtured in log form into the weave and roll it up.  Smoked on his BGE for an hour or so and BAM!

    He called it the "Bacon Explosion"-  He said he learned it from a buddy last year... 

    It was a venison fatty!  It looked pretty good!

    They're called "fatties" on the other sites, too. I remember a post on another forum about a "bacon wrapped thing" this guy cooked, the first response was "that thing is called a fatty".

    A couple years or so ago the guys from BBQ Addicts made a fattie that included a layer of bacon on the inside ( along with other ingredients)... they called the fattie a "bacon explosion".


    The word got around about their creation  and somehow the Good Morning America Show and others found out about it.  They were asked to make it on the show.

    The media... being what it is... thinks that all fatties are "bacon explosions". 

    Unfortunately... so do others who have never heard of a fattie..[​IMG]

    Here's more about it... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacon_Explosion

    The guys from BBQ Addicts do not claim to be the ones who invented the fattie. They really are good guys. :)

    This guy claims that he thought it up which is really funny because it had been around on here and a couple of other sites for a long time


    This thread has got me thinkin

    How about stuffing one with chorizo, jalopeno, grilled onions,fried potatoes, eggs and some monterey jack and smoked cheddar -  mmmm

    Gotta get on this one soon
  6. That's probably the POLITICAL ( IN ) CORRECT Media. What a bunch of HACKS.  Bet they cant say "Smoking a Fattiie." Or the Anti anything groups will need to get involved.

    "Bacon Explosion" is actually trademarked by BBQ Addicts.  Also, I can see how media wouldn't want to use the term "fattie" or "fatty" or however it's spelled.
