What's the BEST way to roll a Fatty???

edited 6:21PM in EggHead Forum
I've been making Fatties by using Jimmy Dean 1# logs and splitting and sprinkling DP rubs inside and squeezing back together. Then I coat the outside with more DP and the kids just love them.[p]I've read a bunch where people roll them flat and stuff with all kinds of neat stuff. [p]How is the best/easiest way to roll a Fatty and minimize a sticky mess?[p]Also, how do you bring them to parties and re-heat? For the house I just keep in fridge, slice and microwave and they don't last a day.[p]

    Legally Blind Egghead,[p] Flatten it out on aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Then use the foil or the wrap to help roll it back up.

    <p />Legally Blind Egghead,[p]I roll out the sausage on a cutting board covered with EVOO.[p]fattie5.jpg[p]fattie6.jpg[p]Mike
  • I have been spreading the meat out on plastic wrap then re-rolling like the sushi chef using the plastic and wrapping ..then you can sort of compress and shape when it's inside the plastic. Still sticks though sometimes on extraction :-) I'll try that EVOO next time .

    infredible,[p] Make sure the Sausage stays cold. If it starts to get warm the fat starts to render. When that happens it will start to stick.[p]
  • Celtic Wolf,
    So, like a pastry chef, try to roll it out on a cookie sheet that has been in the fridge. Just a guess.

    Car Wash Mike,[p] You want good!! I found this Orange Chiptole Glaze on the way to Ocala. I said HMMMMM that might be good as a Tri-Tip Marinade.. Boy was I right...[p]

    mukl,[p] After you have it back in a roll just stick it back in the frig for a while.. It should come off the plastic wrap like it did when you opened the package. Then roll it in your favorite rub and away you go.[p][p]

    Car Wash Mike,[p]The six-pack abs are long gone. The blood preasure is in check. The cholesterol is another story. Doc said he's like to see it lower and to work on the diet. That pic doesn't help.[p]Smokey "may I have a second helping of rabbit food, please"

    Legally Blind Egghead,
    The BBQ Guru site sells silicone mats. I mix up my sausage concoction, then place it on a silicone mat. Roll the mat a few times on the kitchen countertop and you have a PERFECTLY formed fatty ... and, the silcione mats create a dimpled effect on the fatty making for a great presentation of the final cooked product. Throw the mats in the dishwasher when done ... easy, peasy, Japaneasy.

  • Legally Blind Egghead,
    Smoosh it flat on plastic wrap, fill it w/ whatever (peppers, cheese, etc.). Then use the plastic wrap to roll it back up.
