    My first fatty didn't start out well. The sausage was sticky and didn't want to flatten, I forgot about the bacon and burnt it to a crisp, the rest of the filling (sauted red & green peppers, onions, and scrambled eggs) started falling out, the fatty didn't roll very tight and kind of looked like a pile of you know what. Overall, it looked butt ugly (pun intended).

    The smoke did it wonders though.

    TLOML doesn't like a heavy smoke flavor, so I smoked it for just an hour using hickory. Final hour was smokeless.

    Lesson learned: I ususally find breakfast sausage salty, so I didn't add any extra salt. In the end, it needed it. The bacon might have solved the problem. I took care of it this time wiith Alton Brown's Meatloaf glaze, which is basically ketchup, honey, cumin, hot sauce, and worchestershire sauce.

    Next up, Dr. Pepper can chicken

    It may have looked ugly, but the real question is how did it taste? Rember: It is better to have smoked a fatty and blow it up than never to have smoked one at all. (as long as you get to eat it)

    hey don't gripe, the only two I have ever attempted were both pizza fatties and th first fell apart in the making so it got divided and made into 2 large odd shaped meat balls. The 2nd was a little better for holding together but booooyyyyyyy, did the both taste great......as ugly as they were.
  11. What no cheese? Looks good though.
