    internal temp @ 100* at 430, started spraying with apple cider.
    my first attempt at rolling a fatty was a disaster. used marinara and cheese as filling, just couldn't get it to hold together. I should have used 2 lbs instead of one. I hope I saved what looks more like a couple of stuffed meatballs.
    more to follow

    Looks good dog: I don't spray my wax paper, but keep the meat as cold as you can so it dosen't wan't to stick to the paper. 2 pounds will work better for stuffing a fatty. Never done one with sauce inside it, that might tend to keep the meat from sticking together, not sure, wonder if a guy could inject the sauce into the fatty after rollin? Have to experiment with that some. Nice work nomatter what!

    pulled the "fattys" they on't look pretty but damn they taste good. My wife doesn't like breakfast sausage or marinara, but I only got a pic of the 2nd one cause the first one was destroyed to quickly.
    6 hours in and butts are @ 149 and spitzing every hour with aj. gonna foil @ 160and throw back in.
    again.......more to come

    Good looking grub................Tip on the fatty rolling, wax paper and pam spray works great and chill the sausage, rolls better when cool............. Fatties look tasty............

    Well folks,
    pulled them off the smoker about 130am @196* enternal, left them wrapped and into the coolder the went, got up early this morn (had to pull a couple hours of sleep) and pulled them.
    the bone just pulled right out of both and they just fell apart in my hands.
    definatly much better than the one I had tried pre joining the SMF.
    Thanks to all for the help yall have been over the last several months. because of this site my Que hasstepped up to a level that is unbelivable.
    thanks again.
