It's raining, it's pouring, the Fatty man is snoring.....

Decided to do my first fatties today. Started last night putting the fatties together, one pizza and one reuben. I won't go into big detail on the process since it has been so well covered in so many great posts. But I will make a few observations:
  • make sure to let the rolled out sausage firm up in the freezer for about 30 minutes. I tried one after about 15 minutes, and it was still to soft. I got it to wrap, but it was splitting and hard to work with.
  • don't overfill with stuffing. My pizza fattie was to full and when I went to roll it, it squished a bunch of stuff out and I had to just toss the squished out fillings.
OK... on to the pictures!

Typical Oregon spring day.... rainy!

Daughter wanted me to smoke some squash, so I cut some acorn squash in half, put a mixture of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.

Since the fatties were an experament I did some chicken with them as well.

Put the fatties in the oven under the broiler for a couple of minutes to crisp the bacon, and after cooling a bit sliced the end to check them out.

Did you put all the normal stuff in your reuben fattie? If so how did you roll it with the 1000 island dressing?

Thinking I need to do another couple fatties this coming weekend. And the squash looks fabulous too!

Nice job!

Yup put down cheese first, then pastrami, then drained krout, then dressing. I just passed the bottle back and forth the length of it 2x - about 1/3 cup. It rolled real well since with everything layed out it only covered about 1/2 of the sausage with a 1" border on three of the sides. So when I rolled it the dressing had some where to squish to.

EXCELLENT! I'll have to try a pizza fattie that sounds interesting, so does the ruben.
