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 235º.
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.
