My First Fatties . . feel free to offer up any advice

  1. I am not unhappy with my first try but I did learn a few things . .  put rolls across the racks, some of the fat drippings missed the pan and landed in/on smoke box that started a little fire. Need to get another temp probe, replace rolling pin lost in divorce, get better at working with stretch wrap (hate that stuff) . . .

    I used a 1/2 pound of ground Venison and 1/2 pound of Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage in each roll.


    I chopped up some red and green peppers, yellow onion, green onion, portabella mushrooms and jalapeno .. .  sauteed all of it in some red wine


    laid veggies out on some pepper jack cheeses and rolled up . .


    I put a lite coat of my favorite mustard on half of the weave


    If you want to try this but can't find it in your local store drop me a message and I'll get some sent out to you . . .


    I was pretty please with my first weave and wrap . .  I even weaved in a longer piece of bacon to cap off the ends . . (not my ideal read it on here, forgot who)


    At first I was pretty disappointed thinking that I over cooked/burnt them . . but the bacon was just about prefect, a couple pieces on the ends were a little crispy but the rest was pretty soft and chewy.

    Over all I think they turned out pretty good . .  there were no left overs!


    I would like to thank all the people that left tips and ideals, they helped out a bunch.

    any comments?
