This is our favorite way to eat fatties. On a slider bun. They are great for guests as appetizers, or 2 or 3 of them make a meal.
The ingredients for these are:
1 1/4 lbs. spicy breakfast sausage (I use 1 1/4 lb instead of 1 lb. because I tend to over stuff & 1 lb. just won't cover the outside)
3 small hot dogs, sliced lengthwise into quarters
5 jalapeno's, slivered without the seeds
10 slices Swiss cheese
10 slices crispy bacon, (I bake it in the oven until crispy)
your favorite pork rub.
I always spray the inside of the bag with Pam, it seems to roll out better & release easier.
Then cut the corners of the bag so the air can get out & the sausage fills the bag easier.
Also make a slit in the top under the seal.
Then roll it out with a rolling pin.
Now cut the bag down the side.
Then the other side.
Then flip it onto a piece of wax paper.
Add 4 slices of Swiss cheese, leaving about 1" on both sides, and 2" on the end.
Now about 3/4's of the hot dogs are added, keeping them even with the edge of the cheese.
Then about 3/4 of the jalapenos.
Then 3/4's of the bacon.
Then 4 more slices of cheese.
Next the remaining bacon, jalapeno's, & hot dogs go on the end.
Then the last 2 pieces of cheese go on top.
Roll it up as tight as you can in the wax paper. Then tuck the sides in so they are sealed.
Unroll the wax paper, and dust the fattie with pork rub. I had a few jalapeno slices, & a couple of hot dog slices that wouldn't fit.
I like to dust it on the saran wrap that I'm going to twist it up in. I use 2 sheets for double thickness, because this is a big fattie.
Spin it up & into the fridge for a few hours.
Ready for the smoker.
Into the trusty Smoke Vault.
I'm using red oak chunks & some hickory chips to get it smoking right away.
Burners on & were going to take it to 165 IT.
The slider buns just came out of the oven, courtesy of Judy.
The fattie is all done, I'm going to let it rest about 45 minutes so the cheese won't run out when I cut it up.
OK here it is after cutting off a few slices, I got 14 slices from this one fattie.
Here's a couple with some pickles & olives.
I'm getting hungry!!
Thanks for looking Folks!!!
