    Can you make one without the bacon on it or will it just fall apart?
     
  2. You are okay w/out the bacon... a few people on the forum prefer it that way.... (not me though LOL)

    You sure can. Some of the guys just unwrap a package of Jimmy Dean sausage & put it in the smoker, without stuffing it. But unless you don't like bacon it really adds a nice flavor to the fattie. The rolled fattie will certainly stay together with out the bacon, especially if you seal the ends & tighten it up with saran wrap.
