We don't have a record of what Brother Smokey Pig used when he cooked the first sausage log, but when Brother Big Dog coined the name fatty is was Jimmy Dean hot.
Thank you Ronelle, for answering my question -- in a typically whackadoodle fashion.
On a side note, Maple sausage sucks for fatties, IMHO. I haven't tried a hot Jimmy Dean, yet, but I'm thinking I will, soon. I think a sausage needs to have some bold flavor to stand up to the smoke. Fatties really absorb smoke -- to the point that they can be too smokey.
I feel the same way about rubs. A little bit can go a long way on a log of breakfast sausage.
