    Bambajita (Bambi Fajita) Fatty

    My dad gave me 2 pounds of dear sausage two weeks ago. It's been calling my name in the freezer for a while now. On Thursday I thawed it and last night I rolled two fatties. These were the first baddies I've ever done. Of course after I got done rolling I discovered that I didn't have any saran wrap and was forced to use aluminum foil. I would have liked them rolled a little tighter in the fridge but the foil, surprisingly, kept them well together.

    In addition to the bacon and the venison sausage, each fatty had two onions, one bell pepper, a few mushrooms, four slices of provolone cheese, a thin coating of a sweet barbecue sauce and a homemade rub.

    This morning I fired up the mini WSM and threw them on for about two hours at 275° until they both reached and IT of 165°. Then I put them under the broiler for about five minutes to crisp up the bacon on top.

    I will admit that although the bacon and the sausage were quite tasty, the internals left a lot to be desired. I don't know if it was the provolone cheese or the mushrooms, probably the mushrooms, but I will not be using this particular recipe again. Next time I'll leave out the mushrooms and give Colby Jack a try.

    Here is the 2 pounds of frozen venison sausage

    Looks tasty nice smoke! I agree on the mushrooms, the suck in everything! My wife doesn't agree she thinks mushrooms belong in everything!

    Give pizza fatty, Rueben fatty, taco fatty, chicken cordon blue fatty a try. Lasagna fatty is another favorite. Of course my Loco Moco fatty is my favorite, search for my thread "He's Loco"!

    Great job on the fatties.  Got to love the baked beans too.  Get rid of the fungus and the world will be right again.
