First timer..and here is the finished product!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
OK. With your help, I was successful w/ my first attempt @ at Fattie...

The build up was all here.

1 Sausage, 1 Groundbeef version. Both had green bell, jalepeno, mushroom, green chile, and cheese.

Here is the Qview from last night.

Not long after putting them on

Here they are at the half way point

And here is the finished product..

They tasted great. The sausage was hands down a better Fattie. I liked the ground beef one (80/20), but as I was told, it just wasn't going to have the needed fat content to stay moist. Took these over to my parents and they were blown away.

Thanks guys.

I'm gonna do another one of these Thanksgiving morning.

So I have between now and Wednesday to think of something interesting to put in this one.

Open for suggestions

Very nice, TD! We still haven't done one here at the church but when we do I'm thinking along the lines of JD maple sausage packed with what will basically be Potatoes O'Brien (small diced potatoes with red and green bell peppers) and some sharp cheddar cheese all wrapped in some of the cheaper maple smoked bacon.

What a way to start

So, as someone very new to the smf I have to ask, how do you get the filling in the fattie? I have just smoked the fattie with a rub on the outside and no filling. Do you core it or roll it flat and fill then re-roll? Very interesting and looks fantastic.

Here is where I started. Just by reading the sticky posts. And a bunch of other posts in the Fattie forum.

Also, The Dude Abides has some great pics of the process.

You take a pound of sausage, and put it in a gallon ziploc (not essential, but works well). Flatten/roll it out.

Then cut the bag open so the top plastic folds down, and put your filling in the middle of the fattie, then use the plastic to help roll the sausage over itself and the filling.

Then seal off the ends by pushing the sausage together.

Here's the sticky on how to do it. Very easy.


And heres how to do the bacon weave.
