Meatball Parm Fatty (Q VIEW) Italian Sauce "Gravy" too

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by pittman, Jul 18, 2011.

  1. So, I am still into new and different fatties.  As an Italian, I needed to mix my cooking world with my smoking world...Meatball Parm fatty sounded good to me!  I made some of my Italian sauce "Gravy" too, so I included a q-view of that as well.


    Some of the stuff I used.



    Hot italian sausage taken out of the casings and sauteed in a lil olive oil.[​IMG]  Add chopped garlic, onion to sausage and after a bit add some paste.[​IMG]

    Add some spices/herbs (Dried oregano, parsley, basil, italian seasoning, salt/pep, crushed red pep flake, onion powder, garlic powder)[​IMG]

    Stir it up...dont let it burn! For me, this is the key & the base of a good sauce!


    Add 1 large can of crushed tomatoes, & 1 large can of sauce. I add 1 large cans worth of beef stock. (instead of water, gives more flavor)


    A bit more of the seasonings added earlier plus 2-3 bay leaves.


    Some parmesan cheese.


    Reduce to low temp, add meatballs and cover for 2-3+ hours.  I always say, the longer the better!


    Meatball Parm Fatty

    Filling:  Chopped meatballs, mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, xtra sauce



    Bacon quilt, wrap the sausage and meatball parm mix.


    210-230 degrees in the MES with Hickory dust in the AMS. 165degrees internal temp (about 2.5 - 3 hrs)[​IMG]

    Came out better than expected! Went pretty quick.  Hope you enjoyed the tons of pics![​IMG]


    Warm xtra sauce for dipping made it a keeper! Enjoy![​IMG]

    Oh man that looks great! Did you make the meatballs yourself or were they a store bought?
  12. You can use either.  I keep my xtra meatballs frozen in the fridge.  They reconstitute in the sauce.  The longer in the sauce the better in my opinion!  Didnt put a qview on the meatball because i took em outta the freezer.  Next time!!
  13. Awesome fattie. That's my kind of flavor combo right there. I would have probably thrown in some pepperoni too.
  14. Oh my heavenly peaches talk about making someones mouth water!!!!! [​IMG]im definatly going to have to try this one out
