Greetings folks! Oh the beloved fatty. Held in such high esteem by my smoking brethren. Regarded as a pinnacle of smokey culinary delight. But how I know ye so little. Where do you come from? Where have you been? What makes you who you are? I'm curious as to where the fatty sensation all started. I know it may be impossible to pinpoint it and attribute it to one single person as in "oh, back in the fall of '34, a man locally known as One Eyed Cleetus took a chub of sausage..." Perhaps collectively we could piece it together. Who has the earliest memory of a fatty? How far back does it go? Did your father smoke fatties? Great grandfather? Do you remember when and how the term was coined? Heck, I'd even enjoy reading a fictional story on the origins of the fatty. Tall tales anyone?
