My first attempt at Fatty Greatness w/Q-View

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by flynn diesel, Feb 4, 2012.

  1. So after several rounds of pork shoulders and ribs I figured Super Bowl weekend would be a great time to try my first Fatty.  With an 8lb. pork shoulder ready for the smoker tomorrow, I decided to go light on the filling with Caramelized Onions, Roasted Garlic, Sautéed Portabella Mushrooms, Spinach and Mozzarella.   


    Jimmy Dean Regular Pork Sausage rolled flat in a 1 gallon ziplock bag.



    Wrapped nice and tight, ready for the smoker.


    Smoked for about 2 1/2 hours over Apple Wood until internal temp was 162 degrees.


    Cue church music.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


    For my first attempt, I couldn't be happier.  The taste was something I can only describe as 1000 angels dancing on my taste buds.  It was magical!

    I like the way you placed it at a 45° angle on the grates. It really made the picture turn out perfect!

    The inside looks perfect. Mine never looks that good!

    Great job
  12. Thanks gang!  I had the leftovers the next day with eggs and it was excellent!

    They are great as left overs. I find my self making them just FOR left overs. The last several I make when I am making something else just so I can have them for a few days afterwards.  I like how well you cooked the goodies first.

    Left overs, if I made a fattie looking that good, no way would I have had any left overs.  Nice job, looks fantastic.
