    Well got around to doing my 1st Fattie today. Used some hot sausage that I got from a pork shop. Put some scrambled eggs, onions, and potatoes (cooked together) and added some of those frozen hash-browns in strips and some cheddar cheese. It came out fine except that the sausage overpowered the flavor of everything else. gonna try ground beef next time. Feel free to critique the looks of it. Good or bad will only help make the next one better.

    Rolled and setting on the grill ready to smoke.

    After about 3 1/2 hrs. Don't know what temp it cooked at as the smoker doesn't have a temp gauge. Took it off at 163.

    Put it in the oven to crisp up the bacon. These are the cut pieces.

    Also did some Candied Bacon in the over. Pics are a little darker than they really came out. Man were they good.

    Congrats on your first fatty dave. Was it a hot flavored breakfast type of sausage? Or a hot sausage like you'd use on a pizza or to make a sandwich with. I like you're ingredients, they'll be great with either the ground beef or maybe a milder breakfast style sausage.

    [​IMG]for your first fatty!

    thanks guys
    Already thinking about the next one. One thing for sure it won't be the same kind of sausage. Probably be some kind of beef and maybe a little sausage.
