Questions for the royal
Of course this doesn't need any further explanation at all...

I just want to say I'm so pumped for the Royal, I can't stand it!!! You guys always look like you're having so much fun, I can't wait to get involved. What better place to cut your competition teeth than the Grandaddy? And what better place to introduce the world to my babybacks? Lucky world! :lol:

Competition Sausage Question...
The Royal is having a sausage competition and I'm curious... when they say "sausage", they're probably not refering to fatties are they? Or could I do some sort of a fatty mod to make it interesting? I signed up for it because they didn't charge extra but now I'm wondering if it is more along the lines of the stuffed skin type sausage you make up on your own. Can someone fill me in on this? Thanks!

RE: Competition Sausage Question...
I had the same thing at cometition 2 weeks ago. Did not really get any straight answers. I turned in a plain old maple fatty with nothing done to it and took 4th place out of 63 teams. Got me some cash out of it also. Go with a maple fatty. For right now it will be unique enough to be different. Not sure about a few years from now.

RE: Competition Sausage Question...
I saw a fatty when I was judging Art of Barbecue in Tulsa in June. I didn't know what it was at the time, but I sure liked it.

RE: Competition Sausage Question...
Cool! Maple fatties it is then! And you're right... I don't think most people know what it is. Of course I've gotten the weird looks when I've told people I smoke fatties! The maple ones absolutely rock... I'd be impressed if I was a judge! Thanks, guys!

RE: Competition Sausage Question...
Has anyone ever (might be a dumb question?) used plain old raw sausage meat, doctor it up with spices and drizzle some maple syrup on it before rolling into a fatty?

I just can`t get past using the mass produced pre rolled fatty mod.

Hell, mustard goes with sausage. Maybe a honey mustard version? I`ll be trying that one next burn.

I did something like this once when I was stuffing peppers ofr the smoker. I had a lot of the meat left over, so I rolled it into a loaf like shape and put it in the smoker. Tasted okay, but thought I rolled it too tight.

RE: Re: RE: Competition Sausage Question...
BTW... I'm sure some of you have thought of it already (haven't seen recipes in awhile) but last time I did ABTs in my chili grill, I mixed together that new whipped garlic and spice cream cheese and a bit of the whipped onion and chive cream cheese and stirred in a finely chopped fatty section! Then stuffed the peppers! Awesome!

Sorry Chad...

Made it barely under the gun for the Royal sign up. It looks like by Friday, they'll be full so if you're thinking about it... git r done! And also, not bad for a competition rookie, I've already gotten two sponsor companies today... one for $250 and another for $100. My wife is going to talk to her boss tomorrow about at least another $100. This could end up being pretty cheap for us! Sorry to boast but I'm pretty pumped about all this since it's my first contest!
