    With preseason football starting and the first games right around the corner, I chose the classic/tailgater category for my first throwdown entries. Behold, the Bratwurst Fattie!

    Ingredient list:
    5 fresh bratwurst, uncased and smushed together
    Yellow mustard
    Sauerkraut, juice squeezed out
    Shredded cheddar cheese
    White onion, diced
    Bacon wrap


    First, the brats flattened in a bag, with the code word written in yellow mustard.

    The mustard has been spread out evenly, and sauerkraut added. I've resorted to a sticker with the code word now.

    Now, the cheddar cheese.

    Diced white onion added.

    Bacon wrapped and ready to rest in the fridge.

    Going into Frankenfridge, my converted refrigerator smoker, for some cherry smoke. It's the one on the left.

    Coming out of Frankenfridge at 171* to rest in foil for a sec. It's the one on the left again. The code word is written on the flag sticking in the top of the fattie, barely readable.

    The money shot, sliced for the plate. Again with the barely readable flag sticking in one of the slices.


    Sorry about the overexposed q-view. I hope you enjoy my fatties! The one on the right is my Omelet fattie that I'll describe in a separate thread.

    Thanks guys. I put the yellow mustard on it just because that's what you put on a bratwurst at the ballpark, but half expected it to disappear like it does on the outside of a pork butt. It came through just fine though, and the fattie tasted great! The next one will have more sauerkraut, though.
