Okay folks....I love them fatties but hate how small they are, so using the jimmy dean sage recipe....I made up a couple of pounds, formed into a 4" round chub and now it's on the smoker......shall see if it works.....if so then it should fit on a regular bagel or english muffin.....

here it is just before hitting the smoker....

I've been silcing them in half then long ways. How did the recipe turn out? I tried one I found online and it didn't come close - hope that oneis better.

this is from a recipe srmonty posted for me....I had to alter it a bit using some corn sugar in it also, but it seems to be very close to the sage....very close.....

we still have a couple hours on the smoker to go before the mega is done......

okay, took about 2 1/2 hours longer then a regular fatty, but we finally hit the 170 mark......here it is, you can see from these what I was saying about it falling apart in places....I think if I slice right I can work around that......as for on the bagel or english muffin...guess I need to hit the store first......

the taste is very good....a tad "hot" so on the recipe I think I might hold back on some of the red pepper flake a bit or maybe add a tad more corn sugar to ease things......the recipe was good as is for frying, but this time smoking really brought the "heat" out...... it's really good thou.....really good....... I still need to work on pressing it into the 4 inch round better (and I have a 4" ID pvc pipe I use, but need to press it harder I guess).... and yes I cheat on the egg also.....wally world sells those egg patties for dirt cheap.........I could make them myself, but hell I'm too busy smoking and making sausage!!!!!!!!

Would love to try your sausage recipe. Like Debi I tried a Jimmy Dean recipe I found online and it was horrible.

Has anyone ever had Bob Evans sausage - if you ask me they are the best sausage you can buy. Would LOVE to find a recipe for theirs.

Have you tried rolling the chub? What about using egg rings? I was just looking, drooling, licking my chops when the idead hit me....What if there was just a little runny yolk dripping down and intermingling with the chese.

Darn, ther goes my A.D.D again.

rolling does not work that well, it's just too big.....but I think I have a good idea on how to better press it, it will be just like making a cheese press.....but I've gotta get to the hardware store to get a few more things first!!!
