A fatty, in the BBQ world, is a pork sausage roll stuffed with various goodies and then smoked slow and low. I have a Weber Smokey Mountain and have been wanting to try a fatty for a while. My parents were coming over today for a late lunch, so I decided to give one a try. Well, two actually.
This is the first one. Did it yesterday as a trial run.
Ingredients: Sausage, bacon, onion, peppers, cheese
These are getting cooked, chopped and stuffed in the sausage.
Onions and peppers. I dumped the bacon grease and scrapings into these.
Sausage flattened and ready for stuffing
Rolled with a bacon weave. It got a little overstuffed and I forgot to get a pic before it got rolled.
Put a little Salt Lick BBQ sauce on it and popped it on the Weber Smokey Mountain
Took about 2.5hrs to get it to 170F internal temp.
Fatty #2, turned out better. Spread the sausage out a bit more, added more cheese and got it to roll better.
The bacon weave
The finished product
BTW, the Weber Smokey Mountain is a great smoker for the price. There's a great forum for it if you want to read up on it. http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/
