    after reading for so long about a fattie, i decided to try one... i am not a big fan of breakfast sausage unless its in biscuits and gravy...

    we used a Bob Evans Zesty Spicy one, it didnt lose alot of spice [​IMG]

    gotta say that this is my favorite way to prepare them and the missus agrees...these are so good

    You just never look at breakfast sausage the same after you smoke a fatty!
    Yet to try Bob Evans, but it's coming. Yours looks really good. [​IMG]

    I made a run by the Commissary (Navy grocery store) Friday just to see if they had briskets or tri tips - they usually have grade B meat whatever that means so I only buy the chickens.

    Anyway they had these Bob Eveans sausages and I had never heard of them but they were HUGE! Must have been 16 inches long! Same thickness, but really long. I almost bought one to try but they didn't have them in HOT so I didn't. I really like the JD hot ones.

    Are they anything like Jimmy Dean sausages?

    on the pkg it says " pork,ham & tenderloins included." i saw the big chubs of sausages as well but wanted to try a smaller version first...

    as for difference, yes i think Bob Evans is actually a little better quality than JD, when you eat this sausage, the texture seems like a good homemade sausage.. one word.. meaty

    T-bone Tim:

    thanks for the compliment.... i am getting to know my smoker better, the last couple of smokes were strictly charcoal and not propane like usual...


    i always us JD's for biscuits and gravy... i have just been converted to Bob Evans because i really like the texture and taste of the sausage.. makes me feel like i am eating real meat not who knows what you get in a sausage

    Although it's easier I think you'll like the flavor better with charcoal. You'll also get a better smoke ring. That's all I ever used in my All-in-One. The propane is good to start the coals with! Get about 6 or 8 going and when they start to turn grey - push them to the side and add more charcoal to the middle and put the hot ones on top. Works great and last quite a while. Put your wood to the outside edges so it doesn't get a lot of heat and they'll smolder nice and slow

    We love fatties here. Yours look so good. We always use fatties to fill extra space in the smoker and freeze the extras for later. Congrats on such a successful smoke.

    Fatties are so good when they first come off the grill! Keeps you hapy while you wait for the real dinner to cook!
  9. I just tried my first fattie today. I put it in with my pork shoulder early this morning, I will admit I was apprehensive about trying one, for whatever reason it didn't sound good. Boy was I wrong! It was awesome, I used JD regular covered in me favorite rub. Very good breakfast!!!!

    Looking good Teacup!!! Throw a couple of them on next time now that you know you like them. They freeze great, and make for a fantastic breakfest on the weekends with some eggs and cheese grits!![​IMG]
