the Border Fattie!
#11
  Re: (...)
After Daphne and I starting thinking up Fattie ideas I just had to make this one.

Of course the local market didn't have any chorizo so I had to season up the 1 1/2 pounds of pork sausage - using Charcuterie recipe for 5lbs I just reduced amounts (except for the Tequila and red wine vinegar) and mixed it up in the KA.



After rolling it out (in the ziplock bag) I spread it with refried beans seasoned with a little extra cumin, some rice mixed with ancho chili powder, two packages of Taco Bell "Fire" sauce and tomato flakes.



Next came two chiles rellenos stuffed with poblanos and jack cheese.



I managed to roll this puppy up using the bag to help - wow what a FAT fattie! Now he's off to the freezer to firm up a bit.

While he chilled I took a pound of bacon and did the basket weave on saran wrap - I had 3 extra slices of bacon but I knew I'd need them to finish the bottom.



Now - onto the smoker for about 3 hours over apple and mesquite chips. The water bowl had apple cider and water, a jalapeno, black peppercorns, and a cinnamom stick. As it smoked Bob sprayed it with a mixture of margarita mix and Tequila.

The fattie was done just after the game ended.


I tented it to stay warm while I prepped the rest of dinner, Spanish rice with corn & black beans, and a salad with tomato and avocado dressed only with lime juice and olive oil. Dinner was perfect!



Truly a thing of beauty!

I am thinking of approaching the manager of the meat counter at the grocery about making these for them to sell ready to cook. Hmmmmmmm.

Tell your Hubby that I'm already happily married!

Have you ever Googled "How to smoke a fattie"?

I just did. I came up with several websites that didn't look like what WE were talking about here. I had to laugh, because I didn't have my mind in that mode.

I can guess at what they're talking about - I came of age during the time when a big ol' "fattie" was a whole different thing. Not to my taste at all.
