What the heck is a fatty?
 
Seems like we talk about these all the time and it is one of the most asked questions of our new brethren(ette).

Buy yourself a log of breakfast sausage, you know the kind that you slice into patties and fry up in the skillet. Any kind will work, but we have pretty much settled on Jimmy Dean and Bob Evans. Cheaper brands tand to not taste any thing near that of the better brands, but tastes more like fat. Pick a flavor any flavor.

Take a knife and cut the wrapper off being careful to maintain the shape of the log. Place it in the smoker at your normal temps for smoking. Take it to 170 to insure doneness. This takes around 3 hours, but not usually more. I flip mine about half way through to get grate marks accross the top and the bottom.

Remove, slice, and enjoy.

Congratulations, you just smoked a fatty!

Next time, experiment with rubs or marinades if you care.

When they are on sale, I stock the freezer. I never fire up the smoker without tossing on a couple of fatties.

I think Brother Smokeypig deserves special recognition for bringing us the fatty Mod. Like a lot of good ideas it was built upon by the Brethren, Parrothead thought they needed a name and BigDogSmoker came up with the now infamous moniker.
Smokeypig, I'd be tickled to see "Author of the Fatty Mod" in you signature line. We really appreciate and enjoy the idea you shared with us so take a bow Brother.

Usually a fatty refers to a fat joint loaded with the herb, if you know what I mean!!! :wink:

i don't think the local law enforcement officials would frown too much on this version of smokin' a fatty.

My last Q I tried 'Fatties' for the first time. One Jimmy Dean, one hand rolled Italian Sausage from links, and one hand rolled Anduille from links.

Very noticable that the hand rolled from link ones were better.

Had my first Fattie and eggs the next day. Needless to say, best damn eggs I ever had.

The fatties can change the complexion of a meal! Try 'em on biscuits!
