Seriously - a couple of days ago, I had never heard of a fatty. Doing research on which smoker to get, I came to these forums for personal experiences with different equipment (I finally got the small GOSM). While looking through the site, I came across the name "fatty" - still clueless on what the heck they were. But then I found the pics and the incredible variety of fatties, and of course, the fatty throwdown. Wow!! I broke in my smoker yesterday - a decent first effort with a pork butt. And I had to try my first fatty. All I had in my fridge was some simple breakfast sausage, so I filled it with cheese, scrambled eggs, and sauteed vegetables. WOW!! I need to work on my rolling technique (no blowout, but very uneven roll), but I know that everytime I start that smoker from now on, there will be at least two fatties in there along with whatever else I'm cooking. After all, they don't take up much room. Plus, if I actually plan ahead of time, with some of these tremendous ideas posted by the more experienced, there'll be some good eats at my house. To the inventor of the fatty and to those who are posting some tremendous variations - thank you, thank you, thank you!!
