You make a good point erain.
I didn't think about that. So yeah, we could either post full procedure in here, or maybe it would be nice to actually make the shot look good. A nice picture perfect professional shot of a fattie. I think that's a good idea. Sure was a terrible time to start the thread with all these storms all over the country. We are under a severe thunderstorm watch right now. Glad there is no snow...

Does the fatty have to be 100% breakfast suasage? 50%? Could it be all beef?

If I don't wrap it up in Bacon, should I bother to enter?



I have a great idea, but I know it's going to taste fantastic, and look so-so. Oh well. I'll enter it anyway.

My personal opinion is that a fattie must be at least partially sausage and any other kind of meat is fine. It has been argued as to whether all beef is a fattie or a stuffed meatloaf. Bacon? Not required at all, just commonly added to a fattie.
But hey, you want to use all beef? Go for it. Long as it is creative, smoked and delicious then most anything is fair game.
I finally get a chance to fire it up again tomorrow or Wednesday so I will finally be adding my first throwdown fattie to the post.

Well, this throwdown was kind of a bust with snow storms and rain in most of the country for a while now.
Here is my submission.
Maple sausage coated in crushed pecans stuffed with peanut butter, honey and a banana cooked in butter and brown sugar.
I had smoked some pecans and crushed them and made a smoked pecan butter-rum sauce, but I let it sit on the stove overnight and never even ended up tasting it, it smelled good though.
The fattie was ok but not great. Could have been sweeter I think, and maybe add some heat with the sweetness on the outside, but it will get eaten.

Temps are going to be 7 - 10C today. (46 - 50F for all you Southern Folk :)

Skys are clear, wind is low to neglibile.

{Chopper looks thoughtfully up and right and whispers}

It's a good day to smoke a fatty.

Okay, here's my first entry - A German Fattie, inspired by and filled with: Braunschweiger, Horseradish, Mustard powder, Pepper, Chopped Spring Onions, Swiss Cheese. Wrapped in thick-cut peppered bacon and smoked over Apple Wood. Link here for the build- http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=75330
