    I joined SMF last night, learned about fatties last night, smoked my first fattie today!

    I was wanting a breakfast style is what I came up with (after a quick trip to wally world this morning!)

    I diced up some idahos and put them in the skillet with a little of my own majic rub. cooked them a few minutes to get them a little tender and get a little color. Next, added onion, garlic, green and red pepper and continued to cook it to soften the veges. It seemed a little "loose" so I added about 1 cup of water and some stuffing mix I had - the stuffing mix absorbed the water and the pan scrapings and brought the whole thing together really nice!

    Next, I flattened out the sausage between two pieces of wax paper, making it as square as possible. Once the stuffing cooled, put the stuffing on the sausage and using the wax paper, rolled the first edge up over the stuffing, then the second edge then pinched and sealed the seam and ends together.

    Following the great example I found here on another thread, I used the weave method to apply the bacon to my fattie.

    All set and off to the smoker (already smoking at a nice 225 with 20 Lbs of Pork butt.

    I took pictures all along the way, but haven't quite figured out how to post them.
