This has concerned me as well. I've considered making one with 1" pipe instead of 1 1/2"

I think the ratio is a personal preference. For those who like an overstuffed fattie, the piston allows you to make one easily. Rolling a fattie with a lot of filling can be frustrating. The piston makes it really easy and it keeps it uniform to minimize the chance of a blow out.

It also depends what you put in it. Personally, I think if you were to stuff a fattie with nothing but cheese and use a piston, you would have way too much cheese. But if you use stuffing like cowgirl did, with lots of other ingredients in it, it can be great.

The fattie piston isn’t for every fattie, and of course; there are some who feel fatties shouldn’t be stuffed. To each their own!

I have used smaller diameters of PVC and it is a great option.

Thanks for the tip on the baggie. I'll have to use one of those next time. I guess I'll also make a piston soon.

Thanks everybody and you're welcome for the baggie idea. It sure makes things easier.
I used 1 pound of sausage and a 1 gallon baggie.
I bet you could use 2 pounds of sausage and make it thicker. Grillinski is right, it all depends on the stuffing you are using and how thick you like your slice of sausage.
Sometimes I make a sauerkraut/apple stuffing...with this method that might be too much kraut for me.

The large piece of pipe has a 2" inside diameter, a 1 1/2 inch would be nice too.

I think having less cheese and more tatoes/onions and corned beef in the stuffing kept it from blowing out too.


Thanks again to Grillinski and for all the kind comments on my fatty. You're a sweet group of friends!

That's what I do jeanie... use 2 pounds of sausage in the gallon bag. Another thing I do is spray the inside of the baggie with spray veggie oil before installing the meat... it helps in sliding the meat out.

I just cut the sides and open the bag and use it to roll the fattie. YMMV

After looking at those pics I am almost afraid to attempt a fattie. Maybe I should go review the pics of worst turn ins again.
