Thanks Al! I didn't know what to expect since I've never made or tasted one before, but they turned out surprisingly delicious. My buddy and I each had a toasted-bagel breakfast-fatty samich 6am this morning on our way to the honey hole. They disappeared like magic! lol..... and so did the fish!
I sauteed red, yellow, orange bell peppers and a spanish onion, tossed in some salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes and some parsley. Scrambled a dozen eggs. Used JD mild sausage. Rolled out sausage, put on a layer of Kraft shredded (cheddar, monterey jack, asadero and queso blanco) cheese, layer of pepper/onion mix, eggs and another layer of cheese, although I did forget to put a second layor of cheese on one of the fatties. So, I decided to put a layer of cheese on the bacon weave before I rolled the fatty. Smoked between 225-235° until 165° IT then turned up the heat to crisp the bacon and that took it up to 180° IT.

They flattened out a little??
Where is it written they have to be round?
Are we smoking some Steelies next???
I was a little concerned that they may fall apart even though I rolled them pretty tight.
Only if I go and buy some.... lol Not even a sniff today! Water conditions weren't all that great.....yeah that's it!
Thank you for the compliments guys! I'm glad I didn't screw them up!
