I started out with some of my home made Hot Italian Sausage that I made late last year. I skinned them and got them ready for the fatty. This fatty was made from pork.

after skinning them, I added sliced green olives to the meat and mixed it all up by hand

Next step was to roll the meat out. Rather than making a total mess, I filled a freezer bag and rolled it out inside the bag.

I then cut the sides of the bag open with a knife and prepared the stuffing for the fatty

I started with some fresh made pizza sauce

next I added some mozzarella cheese and pepperoni to the middle

next I diced up some mushrooms and hot peppers

using the cut freezer bag, I folded the roll and formed the edges to seal it all up

now time for the bacon!

I weaved the bacon for the outer layer

I thought that an angled bacon wrap would look nicer for presentation. Man this looks good!!!

Only one way to make this look better........

Onto the KK 23" it went at 250 degrees for 5 hours

A final look before it hits the grill....

I used White Oak to give it more of a traditional pizza oven taste.... this was a good call for sure. It really added a great smoke profile to the meat

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/BBQ3/_DSC1705.jpg

this thing was smoked well and still super juicy on the inside

I made some pizza dough yesterday in preparation of this cook. In my mind I thought about making this fatty like a calzone. I rolled the dough and encased the fatty inside of the pizza dough. The 32" KK was settled in at 550 degrees with the KK baking stone heat soaked for over 5 hours!!!

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/BBQ3/_DSC1715.jpg

Once all enclosed, I put this on the 32" KK for about 8 min.

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/BBQ3/_DSC1716.jpg

I pulled it off and placed it on a bakers rack to let it cool and not get soggy. The dough was nice and crispy all the way around

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/BBQ3/_DSC1719-2.jpg

Sliced it open to take a look at the inner working of this fatty.......

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/BBQ3/_DSC1720-2.jpg

You can see just how juicy it remained inside. It was incredibly delicious

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/BBQ3/_DSC1722-3.jpg

And finally sliced up for lunch!!

Bosco, You are a Master Chef!
First, the fatty is perfectly realized and I bet also delicious.
More than this, you realized a perfect "calzone"!
Complimenti.

That looks like a work of art. Literally, you put your heart into it. Just dont eat too many of those, or you will need a replacement.

how did you like the recipe??

Keeping a copy of your recipe, I used all store bought ingredients and kids are picky, so tried to do half yours and half just meat and cheese. Thanks again for you post!
