    Well, it was time! I have never done a fatty before and, quite frankly, it was time! I asked if anyone in the house thought it was a good idea and was met with threats of bodily harm if we didn't do it! So, class is in session again but this time we're all learning!

    This was a house effort so Trevor, Jake and Joe all joined in with me to make these little gems happen. We prepped them tonight and they are in the fridge right now just letting the flavors all meld together into what can only be goodness to come!

    Just for the record, I worked out for 45 minutes instead of my normal 30!

    1.5# of Jimmy Dean's maple flavored sausage

    Ore-Ida's Potatoes O'Brien for the bulk of the filling.

    Someone said cheap bacon was better, so...

    One with jalapenos...

    One without. My camerman failed to capture the pepper jack and cheddar being added to each. Bad cameraman! [​IMG]

    They are now parked in the fridge where they await their final sentence to be carried out...smoking over cherry chunks!

    More pics tomorrow!

    Nice looking fatties. I always get the cheapest bacon as long as it's thin sliced. I just stocked up on Bar S. Albertson's had a sale at $4.99 for 3 pounds.

    looks good..............i still need to try my hand at these!
  6. I just found this site yesterday and read about these. Honestly at first, I was under the wrong impression regarding "smoking fatties", but quickly learned otherwise. These and the peppers are on my list as items to try soon. They look really good!

    No worries! Read my mini-bio and you'll see that I help run a program that helps men overcome the sin of addiction be it drugs or alcohol. The first time I mentioned 'rolling a fattie' I got all kinds of odd looks and one who was willing to help! Imagine their surprise (and bubble burst) when I explained myself! [​IMG]

    I was at work when this dude went on the smoker. My plan was to use the Brinkmann All-In-One with charcoal and wood chunks and smoke at about 230-240* until 170* in the middle. When I got home it was in the RO electric at 210* and was pulled at 165*. While the bacon was a tad rubbery and not as crisp as I think it could have been, it still tasted great!

    Fresh out of the RO and rested for all of three minutes (hey, they're still learning).


    Next to the eggs and dinner roll.

    All in all, not a bad first run. We did learn a few things, like patience, so the next round will be much better. The other one is nestled snugly in the freezer for one of these nights when we get the hankerin' fer another.

    Thanks for looking!

    Great job Mac. [​IMG]
    I really like the idea using Ore-Ida for the mix. Not always having a lot of time to do things from scratch that sounds like the ticket!!!
    And I love my bacon soft...... (No cracks you guys)!!!! [​IMG]

    Very nice looking fattie for sure there Mr mac. The breakfast fattie has seemed to be the fav here.
  12. How do you roll the sausage with the potatos inside of it and then weave the bacon around it? I have to try this!

    Hey 7ten - check out the sticky at the top of the first page of the fatty forum. All of your questions will be answered.

    Be warned, however -- once you make one of these, you will be making more, possibly until the day you die. They're that good!
