    Heh! Well, the fatty'll be done for dinner at least!

    No sear on the brisket eh? Well, it'll still be good, but I DO think the sear adds a dimention to the flavor not attainable without.

    Don't forget to update us!

    that looks really good.!!!

    i have a couple questions for ya.

    1.. why do you sear the brisket before smoking it.? and did you trim it at all or did you just cook as is.?

    2.. making the fatty, is that just ground sausage that you stuffed with cheese and rolled back together.? does it hold up pretty good when you do that.?

    I trimmed the fat off it til i had about 1/4 inch or so. I have heard good and not so good stuff about searing it so I thought I would try it for myself. Normally i just smoke it as is with no sear.

    The fattie i made is a 1lb of jimmy dean breakfast sausage rolled out flat then whatever inside the rolled up. This is my first fattie that made it to completion and it holding up great so far.

    so you just roll it up and push it together huh.?

    When I made mine I just rolled it up and it held together ok. I didnt use anything to hold the fattie i made together, but then it started coming apart at the join.
