    Hey all,

    What I love about fatties is that you can basically fill em with anything and they always seem to turn out incredible!

    Typical bacon weave;

    Kept the first one real simple...rolled out some Jimmy Dean, added some Swiss and spinach;

    Next one was for the kids and so used some processed sliced cheese, chopped up bacon, and diced hot dogs wieners (not sure Chef Ramsay would approve, but used my 4 year old wiener slicer to save time!);


    Rolled and wrapped, for later in the day;

    2:30pm...time to smoke...tossed them on with a sprinkle of rub on my WSM at 270F;

    My buddy Finnegan as always starting out to ensure that none come close to those fatties;

    Finally, 3 hours later took those beauties out...

    And here are the sliced pics...they turned out very nice!


    Not one piece was left after the meal was done....bacon was almost perfect....going to bump the temp to 285F on my next ones to get it even crispier.

    Thanks for watchin, cheers!

    Nice work!  I love making Fatties also.  I am in the middle of curing 11 pounds of pork belly so I can use my own bacon on them. 

    I also agree with you why Fatties are so good.  You can use any kind of meat and anything inside. 

    I made a Philly cheese steak Fatty with ground beef, American cheese, suateed mushrooms and suateed onions.  It was amazing.  It was so good my wife even liked it.  That is true praise!  LOL

    Thanks for sharing the Q view.

    I believe it was a Genovese Basil. I love the lemon basil too...have not smoked fish yet, but when I do I will be using it. Thanks for stopping by. :)

    Glad I could help.  A Philly cheese steak is also one of my favorite things. Plus my wife is picky so I ha to make something with ground beef. 

    I also wanted to compliment your weave.  That looked perfect.  What kind of bacon did you use?

    Costco, here I come!  Bacon buy me in the local supermarket was $8.00 a pound last week.  I thought I was seeing things.  Pork belly was $3.49 a pound.  I made 11 pounds of bacon so I sure be good for a week or 2.  LOL
