    I made brats and ran out of casings. I have about 4lbs of meat left over. Any ideas of what I should do with it? 

    I thought about using that meat to make a fatty.

    You could do that. Or shape into patties and have brat burgers. You could freeze the patties and use as needed.

    Brat burgers sound awesome.

    Brat meat in bulk has many uses, how about a fatty or two ?

  6. I posted here about an experiment using brat meat to make a fattie. It has become my first choice, try it I bet you'll like it.

    I once made a deep dish Chicago style pizza using leftover bratwurst as the sausage layer. It was pretty tasty. Had I planned a little better I might've used caramelized onions and a mustard based sauce and maybe some smoked mozzarella to make it even more "authentic".

    I made Kielbasa a couple days ago..... Rolled "Kielbasa Balls" and threw them in the smoker with the sausage... Came out really good...

    Try some of those along with a fatty.... I think they would be really good in spaghetti...

    That is a good idea. When my family gets together to make kielbasa, we always about 10 extra pounds and cook in the oven. So good!

    I think I am going to go with making a fatty. I haven't made a fatty and I am excited to try it. I am hoping tomorrow, but it will depend if I can kick this stomach bug by then.

    This does sound good for another time. Do you have a recipe for the Chicago style pizza? Are you allowed to share it? :)

    It's just a deep dish pizza, no real recipe involved. I think I looked on YouTube at a few videos to see how the parts all went together. It's basically crust, sauce, meat, crust, sauce, cheese and then whatever other toppings you want.

    I know some people think it is not sausage unless it is in a casing.

    Might not be the traditional Brat.  But to me it is still good sausage.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I ended up making a fatty out of it. I will upload the photos when I get the transferred to my computer. It was tasty!

    It turned out really well. I have enough brat meat to do one more of these. That is probably what I will do with it. :)

    Stuff with some sauerkraut and serve with some spatzel

    I can't believe I didn't think to stuff it with sauerkraut. That is pure genius. I will do that on the next smoke. I have a little more meat left.
