    Yeps, them be mud bugs, and they're goin in a fatty!

    Along with some corn, onion, rough chopped redskins, hot dogs, and a pile of shrimp! Cajun boil fatty!

    Had to roll the italian hot sausage thinner than a gallon zip lock bag would allow so I used freezer paper. Here's everything piled up, liberal Zatarian's creole throughout.

    Wrapped in cross hatch bacon for strength (on the left), she's a monster!

    The other fatty above was a pizza fatty, JD regular sausage, layer of ham, layer of pepperoni, another layer of ham, onions, mushrooms, tomato paste (much better than tomato sauce for pizza fatties) some smoked cheddar and a little Tony's.

    Threw a shoulder roast in as well. CBP, garlic powder & a sprinkling of jeffs.

    Pizza fatty got done 1st. Delicious!

    Took almost another hour for the cajun boil fatty to get to 160 internal.

    Made some coctail sauce for it with some ketchup, worchestershire, wally's horseradish (the real McCoy), fresh lemon and brown sugar. Could not stop eating it. Best way to describe the taste is "cajun seafood meatloaf" Definitely worth the effort!

    lol, I forgot they were called mud bugs. Both the fattys look delicious. Nice job.

    And finally the shoulder came off. Put it in a vacuum bag, made bbq sandwiches the next day with some Stubb's spicey BBQ sauce, which for off the shelf is darn good!

    lol, thanks Dawn, not many people up here eat them, but they sure are good! Friends & I do a real cajun boil once or twice during the summer months, and they're awesome. Too cold to spread newspaper and throw one out on the picnic table right now, things would stick, but this'll get you by!
