Greg, I can't speak to contest parameters but around here most Q joints serve sausage. It's different everywhere but basically its a home made version of Ekrich or Hillshire Farms type of product, usually closer in diameter to a fatty and content I would guess is predominantly pork (butt). It's served sliced and is just cooked not cured before.
If there aren't specifics listed for the catagory I'd go for it. A maple fatty might in fact be a unique entry that will be a hit with the table it lands on, then again maybe not. You won't know unless you try.
BTW-Best of luck Brother!!
