CHUBBIES! (Fatties Little Brothers)

    I had this idea awhile back, and finally got around to it (could have been done before?). But here's what I came up with for my hankering for a fattie on a much smaller scale.

    I bought a 1lbs chubb of Bob Evans sausage. Some hash browns, an onion, some cheese, and some green chile.


    Laid out the 1 lbs chubb in two ziplocs (Half gal I think)


    Split each of the half gal bags into 4 different sausage sheets


    Rolled up very....very...very carefully


    Wrapped w/ Saran, and into the freezer to set the shape for 30 mins


    Then eavh of the chubbies got their own slice of bacon wrapped around it


    Then onto the UDS. Used toothpics to hold their spots and to make sure they wouldnt roll


    Closeup about an hour in


    Close to the 2 hour mark


    Off the drum, and ready to try


    Here's what they looked like fresh off the smoker


    Here's what they looked like the next day sliced into


    Will definately be making these again...I may even try a baby bacon weave next time....

    I'm with Sacr on that. Just did a nice smoke this weekend & wanted to do a fattie but not only did I not have any room I had way too many ideas too get out. I then thought why not make a bunch of little fatties to go & then I could try all the different ideas I had in my head. It will be coming soon though!! Great idea TD

    Very Cool you have made the best new breakfast links. They looks so cute maybe they can be the "Fattie Hotdogs" but I think that you might have screwed up. You didn't entry them into the throwdown........it's a fattie and they didn't say how small they could be.

    DAMN! That's what I get for not checking the throwdown for October...

    I navigate by "Recent Discussions" and it isn't the best way to review the forum. I find myself missing a lot of threads now
