    Hey all,

    Had a great time with my first fattie a few months back so decided to continue playing with different ingredients and smoke a few more. This time, since I was on holidays, I took a drive down South to Malone, NY to pick up some Jimmy Dean sausage (which is not available in my parts).

    For the first one, I use Jimmy Dean regular sausage chub, with some Swiss cheese, mushrooms and chopped fresh basil;

    The second, I used ground turkey mixed with fresh basil, oregano, and thyme, Swiss cheese, shaved ham, and asparagus;

    Got my bacon from the butcher, asked him to slice it nice and thin so that it would be a little more cooked then my last one. Made a extra long weave;

    Rolled them, sprinkled a little rub, then tossed into the fridge overnight. The next day, started to preheat my WSM to 230F in the early after noon, got my fatties out and waited with a nice cold beer and a beautiful day;

    OK....so the beer kinda sucked. Love Canadian, but the 67 sublime sucks mud...

    Anyhow, 3 hours later these puppies were ready to come off and be eaten! As you can see I had a little issue with one of the fatties...normally I make sure the overlap of the bacon weave is on the bottom...guess I got distracted :)

    And finally the sliced shots;

    Final thoughts.....

    Jimmy Dean is definitely the way to go, the meat was light and moist and was not thick and dense when I tried my last one with ground pork and beef. Looking back, I should have tossed in some cooked chopped bacon over the mushrooms before rolling it up...would have been just a tad better.

    The turkey fattie was surprisingly excellent. Nice and light, the asparagus gave it some much flavor it was quite good.

    Another fun smoke! Cheers everyone!

    I personally don't care for asparagus, or ground turkey but it made a beautiful fatty! I'd have

    to try it anyway it looks so good.

    Thanks Mike! It was the reason I made two different ones, some kids hate asparagus, some hate mushrooms. Ground turkey was not planned as my wife asked for ground chicken...ooopps LOL
    Thanks Sqwib! By the way, nice website....lots of cool things that I plan to try on there!
