    [​IMG]......... Non-smoked  [​IMG]  Oven Baked  that is [​IMG]

    Last minute, spur of the moment thingy. Stopped after work to pick up the shrooms, peppers, cheese and Italian sausage. Sauteed the vegetables in evoo/butter, s&p and some Marsala wine towards the end. Didn't have wax paper for rolling so I used parchment paper. Do not use, it's a pita, I figured it would be. The bacon was sliced too thick for fatties, but that's all I had. Overall they came out OK, minus the most important flavor, TBS.

    Have three racks of baby back ribs rubbed and ready to go, into the [​IMG]  oven also. It's 45°, wind at 25-35 mph with gusts over 40. Not going to fight the elements today and that's a bummer [​IMG]  ,  I was really looking forward to throwing them on the WSM. Next time, if there is one.

      Drug that fattie through the garden real good! Looks tasty (even without the smoke). BUT  baby backs in the ...oven ? Someone may have to dock you points![​IMG]. Oh well, sometimes you gotta do....

    [​IMG]  Thanks Mike!

    Nobody that ate from the fatty complained, but some people won't say anything even if they don't like the food. Two of the guests said it was really good, but to be honest, I wasn't crazy about it. To me, it tasted just OK. Like I said, this was a last minute idea. The Italian sausage I never even tried before. The bacon was too thick for fatties, thus too much fat melted into the sausage. The 5 blend Italian cheese, well, I didn't care for that either. If I make this again I will only use one type of cheese. Live and learn...

    [​IMG]  Please don't take any points away, I promise not to ever do this again!

    Just a quick update.... I was somewhat surprised how much better they were a couple days later, sliced and nuked. I will for sure be making these again on my WSM with a dash of TBS. The only thing I'll do differently next time is, I'll use thin sliced bacon and mozzarella/provolone cheese instead of the 5 blend.
     
  13. I like the symmetry in the first picture: looks like you were having some fun with it. The diagonal weave looks cool, too!
