  • 1.5 lbs Bacon Strips
  • 1 lb Ground Chorizo Sausage
  • 1 lb Sharp Cheddar Cheese cubed
  • 1.5 cups Cooked Hash Browns
  • 4-5 Scrambled Eggs
  • ¼ cup Diced Red Onions
  • ¼ cup Diced Bell Peppers
  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup for glaze
  • 1.5 tbsp Chipotle Garlic Seasoning
  • Chopped Green Onions for garnish
  1. Lay out two large pieces of plastic wrap or non-stick wax paper. Begin making a simple bacon weave (watch my video on Facebook!). Spread the ground chorizo out over the top of the bacon weave making sure to leave ½ inch of bacon overlap on all sides. Next add an even layer of hash browns topped with scrambled eggs. Add your diced red onions, and bell peppers next, then place your cubed cheddar cheese down the middle. Using the plastic wrap, roll the fatty up so that the filling is kept in the middle and the bacon surrounds it on all sides. Fold any of the excess bacon underneath, they generously season with Chipotle Garlic or your favorite seasoning. Once completely seasoned, wrap tightly in more plastic wrap and set in the fridge for 15 minutes to set. You can also do this the night before, just leave the fatty in the fridge until you are ready to cook.
  2. Preheat your Oklahoma Joe’s Bronco Drum Smoker to 275F. Add some wood chips or wood chunks for additional smoke flavor if desired.
  3. Unravel the plastic wrap from your fatty and discard the plastic. Place it onto the smoker and cook for about 2-2.5 hours until the internal temperature hits 160F. About 20 minutes before the fatty is done, heat up a skillet to warm the maple syrup. Once the syrup is warm, glaze the outside of the fatty and caramelize. Save some extra for dipping! When the fatty is done, pull it off and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Garnish your fatty with more syrup. Slice into it and enjoy!
