    I think since the introduction of stuffing fatties a year or so back that we should break it out of the sausage or pork or beef category and give it own category! It's really taken on it own following!!! Therefore royal members of OTBS I bequest of thee to give the fatty it's place at the categorial round table of SMF!!! [​IMG]

    I was thinking about that the other day when I read a post w rolling tips.
    Hadn't even occurred to me. Saw that freezing for 45 mn helps as well.
    LOTS of different recipes etc.

    I would agree too. I have never made a fattie and am still trying to grasp the concept and I think a fattie FAQ sticky under the categorie would be helpful too.

    I'm a greenhorn and I'm just taking a stab of what it is. But from my understanding a fattie is loose sausage layed out about an inch think and then stuffed with whatever one fells like, rolled, wrapped in bacon (optional?) and then smoked to perfection.
    Is there a specific internal temperature you shoot for?

    Aye ...Member #97 Thirds it.
    And maybe give the ABT's their own category as well.

    Is rolling in bacon ever really optional??????

    Definitely optional. Fatties can be very individual. I don't even use pork in mine. I use turkey sausage and sometimes mix it with ground turkey.

    Instead of the bacon I cover mine with some marinated roasted red bell peppers which keeps it moist during the smoke.

    Still very delicious!

    I think the wonderful and magnificent fatty does deserve a special place but if it has it's own forum, then do you think that brisket, butts, ribs, all deserve their own? Just throwing that out there

    Amen, and glory jalapeno on making Fatty category. I would browse it all night long.

    Difference is that brisket would be in the beef category, butts in the port, etc....fatties can be many many different meats!

    The so many diverse recipes that people have come up with for fatties is what caused the notion for the idea of it's own section! Now if we could get someone to whisper this to Jeff....[​IMG]
  19. I agree, since fatties can be made out of just about any ground up meat and stuffed with just as many variables. It would deffinately be easier to decide which catagory to post under.
