Most of us did a fattie or two for our initial smoke. Sprinkle some dry rub on a pound tube of sausage, place it directly on the rack, and smoke it until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Pull it off, wrap it in foil and a towel for a half hour. Enjoy the fruits of your labors.
It's hard to mess up a fattie and even if you do you're only out a couple of bucks and you can probably still use it to season beans, stew, or scrambled eggs. Get it right and you're a genius (for a few minutes)
