    I'm going to try a couple Fatties tomorrow. I see a lot of tutorials saying to put bbq sauce on the outside BEFORE smoking. This is usually a no-no because of burning sugar and all that. What's the deal with this? Why is it ok on a fattie?

    I Don't put any BBQ on the outside if anything it would go in the inside.. 

     I get my sausage rolled  flat put the filling of your choice in the middle do yup a bacon weave and to the smoker it goes..

    Hard to say?

    Putting sauce and sugar on early promotes browning or even burning at high temps. Sometimes that might be desirable, others it may not.

    Lots of rules here. 

    My suggestion is to follow rules carefully if they pertain to food safety.

    Other than that, there are no rules in my kitchen.

    It may work.  It may not?  That is how we learn and modify our approach for the next dish.  Lots of experienced cooks here to guide you, but we each learn our own way and to our own palate.

    The main thing is to enjoy the ride and try to learn something for the next effort.  Enjoy!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    If you really NEED bbq sauce on your FATTIE,, you could always put it under the bacon. That way you get your bbq flavor and its hidden from the heat. I personally dont think bbq sauce needs to go on a fattie.. just MHO

    The trick is to get it in a log as best you can & let the saran wrap tighten it up.

    If you get it wrapped tight in the saran wrap & in the fridge for a couple of hours, it will set up & won't fall apart or unroll in the smoker.
