    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? [​IMG]

    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.
  4. I know it is going to be kind of "vanilla" compared to some of the others I've seen here, but man oh man I can't wait to get this thing into the smoke!

    I'll be firing up tomorrow, and will put some "after" pics up tomorrow night.

    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.
  6. 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.

    Here's my second entry from this past weekend. It's called the "Guinea Grinder Fatty". As far as I know I made this one up.
    Here's a link to the whole process, including my first bacon weave.
    Here's a plated pic. It's the one on the right
