Just what I needed; another smoking obsession. Since discovering fatties on SMF, I've been experimenting and trying new combinations. Here's today's run, with Q-View. I decided I wanted to do something different than my pretty standard mixture of ground beef and pork sausage. These are for a football party, so I started thinking brat (i am from Wisconsin after all). Went to a local mat market and picked up 1 1/2 lbs of their homemade beer brats. Took the sausage out of the casing and used that for my fattie. In keeping with the theme, this one is stuffed with sour kraut, chopped onion and stone ground mustard. Here it is, rolled and ready! While i was there, i couldn't stop at one experiment, so i also grabbed a pound and a half of their homemade spicy Italian sausage. That one is getting stuffed with pepperoni, tomato sauce and mozzarella. The Italians are coming! Last, but not least, i found their " green and gold" brats. Those are brats stuffed with jalapeno peppers and cheddar cheese. I forgot to get a shot of this one before I rolled it :-(. I stuffed this one with some potato, pablano pepper and cheddar cheese. As you can see, this one got a bacon weave to top it off! They spent the night all snug in the fridge and are now on the smoker at about 275 with some pecan. So far, i like the idea of using the brats and Italians for something different and for the flavor. They were quite a bit stickier than the mix of ground beef and pork sausage that I have been using. Of the three, the green and gold brat, with the jalapeno and cheddar was the stickiest to work with. I was a little afraid that they wouldn't hold up and that they would fall apart either on the smoker, or on their way to the smoker. So far they're doing just fine. I did have to be a little more careful rolling them. Hopefully they turn out good. I'll post more Q-View and a review a little later.
