My First Fatty

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by chopper, Apr 3, 2009.

  1. OK. So I thought I would just dive head first into this whole "Smoking Lifestyle". After only having run a few batches through my Char Broil, I thought I would give a Fatty a try.

    My daughter and I put this little number together tonite, and will be smoking it over the weekend.

    Nice looking assortment of ingredients.
    It's great you have your daughter helping with part of the smoking process.
    Nice looking fattie so far, what were the unlabeled ingredients you used?

  9. The top is a moose / pork sausage I smoked last weekend.

    The bottom is a chub of pepperoni I sliced, then vacuum sealed.
     
  10. How does one enter into this magical sounding "Throwdown"?

  12. Starting temp was -5C (20F)




    I turned my fire grate 90 degrees. Now I get lots of air to the coals, and my fire is a little closer to the smoke chamber. Hopefully this sorts out my lack of heat issue.


    Partway through. I put a couple of containers with apple juice and water beside the firebox opening.


    How happy is this guy???

    That's a fine looking fatty Chopper. Congrats on your first fatty! What did your daughter think? My kids won't touch em. But they're afraid of trying new things. Thought maybe if they helped they'd like it.
     
  17. Surprisingly enough, my daughter loved it! She is really picky, so I was surprised she enjoyed it! She told me it tasted just like pizza...I've eaten quite a few pizzas in my day (you can tell by my pic) and it didn't taste nuthing like any pizza I have ever ate [​IMG]

    She normally helps with all my meat processing too. I butcher all my own deer / moose / elk, and she is right in there when it comes time. And I can't keep her away from my grinder!
     
  18. I'm pretty sure that makes us related somehow...you up to lending a long lost Canadian Cousin some $$ Brother???
