Smoked Pepperoni Pizza Fatty

Smoked Pepperoni Pizza Fatty

The warm weather has finally started to come and it is beginning to feel like spring. The snow has melted off the backyard deck and it is time for me to get smoking. One of my favorite things to cook in the smoker is a fatty. There are many different kinds of fatties and I love to try different kinds, stuffing them with all sorts of unique ingredients.

A couple of fatties I have made before are

Bacon Cheeseburger Fatty

Smoked Ham and Cheese Fatty

Today I have a smoked pepperoni pizza fatty. I used Italian sausage meat and stuffed it with green olives, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese.

Mix the Italian sausage meat with the sliced green olives. Roll the meat mixture into a 10×10 inch square. Roll in a large freezer bag or on parchment paper so the meat will roll into the fatty easily.

If using a large freezer bag, cut it open and lift off the top portion.

Lay the pepperoni slices in the middle of the sausage meat. I cut the pepperoni in quarters so that they bunch together well in the middle of the fatty.

Sprinkle the grated mozzarella on the pepperoni.

Roll up the sausage into a log. Tuck in the sides to make sure there is no opening for the cheese to melt out of.

Get the smoker going and bring it up to 250F. Place the fatties in the smoker and smoke them at 250F for about 2 1/2 hours.

Take them out of the smoker and let them rest for about 5-10 minutes. They turned out incredibly well. Serve them with some marinara sauce and they will totally taste like a smoked pizza!

  1. Now the only mistake i see with this recipe, you did not wrap the package with a mat of interwoven bacon.
