Sausage & pepper sandwich, lasagna and a pizza walk into a bar…………bartender says “Ive got a smoker out back” lol. Meijers had sweet Italian sausage on sale for $2 / lbs so of course I grabbed six lbs thinking I’d figure out why later lol. I thought about doing a traditional fatty but decided to go with more of a flat loaf. Started working on this while I was smoking a few eye of rounds. First up sautéed some sweet peppers and vidalia onions in olive oil.Next up took a foil grill pan , sprayed with olive oil and covered with sandwich pepperoni.First two lbs of sausage pressed into a sheet on parchment paper then flipped onto the pan.Spread on some peppers, onions and pizza sauceLayered on pepperoni and provolone.I added another 2 lbs sheet of sausage and repeated the steps above. After that I added the last 2 lbs layer of sausage and added banana peppers and kalamatta olives.Another layer of cheese , Italian seasoning and some sauce.Put this on after my eye of rounds finished. Cranked the smoker up to 275-300F running with apple, cherry and pear. Here it is out of the smoker and on the cutting board.Money shot, time to eat. Played with some Arribbiata sauce, roasted peppers and torn basil.Flavor was off the charts and the cheese on top especially took on a nice hit of the smoke. This thing weighed near 10 lbs lol. Thanks for looking!
