    OK, my first attempt at a fatty and i think I went a little overboard. I spread my sausage out about an inch thick a little bigger than a plate and put pizza sauce, cheese, onions, peppers, and peperonis on it. Well, when I started rolling it is where I thought I may have a problem.

    It turned out huge, about 4" in diameter and a little better than a foot long. I'm afraid if I put it on the grill unrestrained it's gonna bust. Its that full.

    What if I were to wrap it in foil for the first hour or so, then after it firms up a bit try to un-wrap it out onto the grill. At the very least I think I should use a pan so it doesn't explode all over my grill..

    I think I would put it in a foil pan or some HD foil. Don't think I would close it up though. I would think the steam would keep it from setting up. Either way I bet it comes out tasty.

    Dan,
    Having had my share of bursting fatty's...especially the soft turkey ones...
    I make a "boat" out of HD foil, roll the fatty onto it and place that on the smoker grill. It works great. I'll see if I have a pic of one.

    It will lose a little weight while smoking. It will lose a lot more when you start eating it. Just make sure your tongue doesnt knock out your teeth gettin to it.
