My 1st fatty - The Junkyard Dog
Getting ready for the start of hunting season & decided to run a fatty special for the hunters at the Hut. Given it was the first time I've done a fatty, I decided a test run & free customer sampling was in order.

Kept it simple with just three ingredients: bacon, hot Italian sausage & our Cha Cha Hut Trashcan Chili. The chili is made with 10 lbs of BBQ meat (scraps we can't serve, leftover ribs, etc.), 2 lbs of our BBQ Beans, some house BBQ sauce & house pickled peppers.

Thanks to all the great tips here, the assembly went without a hitch. Smoked it with some maple & hickory for around four hours at 235.

Sliced & handed out as free samples on a Sunday afternoon.

Held up great in our heated holding unit (we use Metros to hold our Q at HD temps). Thinking of selling 2 slices with a bit of slaw & a choice of bread for $8. Even though we already have folks wanting me to add it to the menu permanently, I'm going to keep it an occasional special.

Nice looking fattie. Did a couple myself last weekend for the first time with great success. Gonna do a couple more this weekend with a couple pork shoulders and a turkey or two. Good eatin'

It's actually quite addictive. I keep thinking of dozens of possible stuffings. The wife (& business partner) is not impressed (she's not a bacon fan) & wants me to keep it to the chili version. I'm certain that will not happen...

Excellent looking first-time fatty!:thumb: Go for a plain one, with just rub on it. I'm sure your wife will like that.:cool:

Looks a littie crisy on the outside, but I bet it's GOOD.

Nice looking fatty, love the chili!

Looks great. Fatties have become a new favorite. I followed the excellent instructions found on this forum and did up a bacon wrapped, cheddar and jalepeno stuffed fatty. Took it to the office to try out on the guinea pigs before doing one up for my Christmas party. The guinea pigs were hacked that I only brought one! Next time arou d, I'll grab the camera and share a few shots of the results

Thanks everyone. The reason it looks a little crispy Gary is I hit it with the house rub twice during cooking to form a nice outer bark. The bacon ended up having a kind of pig candy quality.

Also Gary, we're putting your sig quote up on the Quote Pig in the Hut this weekend. Seemed appropriate for the start of hunting season.
