If you gonna go, better to go big. I decided to try a Pizza Fatty for my first attempt. 1.5 pounds of spicy Jimmy Dean into a Ziploc bag. Spread a layer of smoked Tomato Pesto as my sauce. A good sprinkling of Slap Yo Mama to kick it up. A layer of Pepperoni topped with some Mozzarella cheese. Added some sauteed onions and mushrooms along with strips of red bell pepper that I charred on the grill, steamed, and then peeled.
I go to roll this beast up and I realize my mistake. Too many toppings. I had to peel a little off and then force it to mold together. Due to this, the seam didn't really want to stick together.
And, because it was larger, it didn't really fit on Cowgirl's Bacon Weave as planned. I ended up putting the fatty seam side down in the middle of the weave and then rolling it over so that the seam was up, but covered by the weave. I tucked the rest of the weave in as best as I could, but I am not sure how "pretty" this is going to be.
I rolled it over onto a foil covered plate. I sprinkled a little of my pork rub on the top for an extra flavor. It's now wrapped and resting in the fridge.
I plan to cook it tomorrow and I'll post pictures of the cook then. I plan on setting the foil onto the grill at least until the fatty starts firming up. I will have to make some slits in the foil so that the grease drains. I was thinking of a thinned tomato sauce glaze, we'll see...
Try not to laugh...
