Breakfast Fatty on the BPS Drum

Had the chance to try out the new Big Poppa Smokers stainless drum. (Thank you again BP!)
I wanted to give it the breakfast fatty test for my first cook. :)






Fried some of my cold smoked back bacon, with cubed potatoes, onions, garlic and minced jalapenos..





Cooled the filling and added a bit of smoked moz cheese...
then filled fatty piston.


This was also my first chance to use the beautiful stainless fatty piston sent from talented outdoor cooking friend Rolf in Germany. Thank you again Rolf, it worked great!!






I let the filling chill while I rolled out the meat inside of a one gallon baggie. This time I used a mixture of beef and pork.





made the usual bacon weave...



wrapped and ready to smoke...





Into the drum at 275 degrees F with a bit of hickory..




Removed from the UDS when the internal temp reached 165F...



I like crisp bacon on mine.. :)



Sliced and ready to eat...




onto a toasted english muffin ...




topped with eggs and drizzled with hollandaise sauce...







The new drum passed the breakfast fatty test with flying colors!

The hardest part of this cook was getting the drum dirty for the first time.. :)

That sure is a pretty piece of iron your packin' there Miss Jeanie. If the product quality is anything like the quality of their customer service, that will be one heck of a smoker.(Ordered a seasoning pack back around the 4th per your suggestion. There was a bit of a delay in order processing but they more than made up for it.) I'm giving serious thought to driving down and picking up a Hasty Bake sometime in the not to distant future. I'll say hi for you when I get there.

Jeanie
Seeing your english muffins it brought to mind my quest for a good english muffin recipie as well as a good one for saltine crackers. I am working on building a brick oven and thought that these two would be good food to make in my future brick oven.
Do you have a good recipie for these? I know you are a meat chef as am I having grown up on a beef farm and having worked for years in a slaughter house, but I also love making bread. I have looked on the internet for the crackers and found no recipies. Any ideas?

This looks perfect, and that's quite the professional piston. Even thoughI don't get over here as often I'd like. Ya know.... It's like coming home!

I know what you mean about getting the drum "dirty" - it's the last time you'll see it all new and shiny. But in no time, it will be all "seasoned" and you'll think nothing of it.
My Memphis Pro is totally black inside now - smoke seasoned. Doesn't bother me a bit anymore. :)
