    I smoked a fatty today

    I decided to smoke a fatty today. I made it with the following ingredients:

    1 kg (2.2 lbs) ground beef
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp coarse ground black pepper
    1 egg

    Wrapping
    1-2 packages of bacon

    Stuffing
    0.5 cups green pitted olives
    150 grams (5 oz) feta cheese

    I used my Big Green Egg for this cook. Indirect heat only. I also had the Smobot running, I really love that thing!

    I only had one package of bacon in my fridge, that was a bit too few strips. I recommend using more.

    Instructions
    Mix the ground beef, salt, pepper and egg in a bowl. Stir well.

    Flatten the ground beef (approx 0.5 inches) on a cutting board (covered with Saran Wrap). I made a rectangle. Sprinkle the stuffing evenly all over. Now start rolling the fatty like a burrito. The Saran Wrap really helps here. Once rolled, apply the bacon and roll once again.

    Now fire up the grill, have it running at 130° C (265° F). It should be a ”low ’n slow”, but doesn’t need to be super low, as the ground beef doesn’t need tenderizing. I added cherry wood chunks.

    Smoke it for roughly 1.5 hours, or until the internal temp is 65° C (150° F). Remove it, slice and dig in!

    I’ve done this fatty before, but keep repeating it since the flavors go so well together.

    Nice! There is really no wrong way to do this, and everybody loves them as an appetizer during a long cook.

            The flavor combinations are endless of course, but if unsure, this is a really great start. If you have kids this is a great cook because they can get involved with their hands with the topping, rolling it up etc.

              A little trick I learned was to use a 1 gallon zip lock bag, stuff it with your beef (or sausage!), flatten it out, then cut open the bag for a perfectly squared off and uniformly thick rolling surface. Works great !!!

                save the cut bag to lay the bacon weave on and help wrap it around the loaf.

              Yep, I do that and I like to do the bacon weave thing. I cheat and cook the bacon on a pan at 350 for just 10 minutes or so and THEN weave it... shrinks a bit and has a head start so the wove under bits cook.

                I started pre-cooking bacon as well with ALL bacon wrapped items. I've found that using one of those inexpensive microwave cooking racks works best. Bacon comes out uniformly cooked and stays nice and flat. Also done in like 1 minute !!!

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill
            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
