Fatties - help

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by vasmoke1981, Dec 5, 2009.

  1. Is it OK to make a fattie the night before and let it sit in the
    refrigerator overnight or should it be made the day i plan to smoke it? Also, what temp is best for smoking them? I am trying to smoke ribs at the same time any suggestions?

    Like Tip said, no worries on making it the night before.
    Smoke it the same temp as your ribs, 225-250ish, fatties normally run between 2-3 hours but pull when the center reads 165, let it rest under a tent of foil for 10 minutes, slice in, take some pics and enjoy.

    I have let a FATTY sit overnight without any noticable difference. I usually smoke FATTIES and ribs at 225°. 155°-160° internal temp on your ready to pull the FATTY(s) out of the smoker.

    I have always made mine the night before and leftthem in the refrig overnight to stiffen up. I wrap them in saran wrap and use it to tighten the bacon weave and the whole fattie so that it will stay together in the smoker.

    done em both ways and they do stiffin up a bit when made the nite before, but not enough to make me do it like that every time... mostly make em and throw on smoker with whatever else i smoking (except fish). like tip says, they dont care...
