Just picked up 2.25 lb. of fresh ground sausage and am looking for a Fattie recipe to try. This is my first fattie. Thanks for the help.

  • Form into log like the types that come in the grocery case. Season the outside with your favorite rub. Cook indirect at 275 until center reaches 170. Pull and rest for about 30 minutes.

    You can get creative and stuff the center with things. It is all personal preference with fatties!

    The pre-prepare tubes of sausage hold together better than fresh. I've had better luck when I've formed the fresh wrapped in plastic, and chilled it over night. But chilling a few hours in the fridge unwrapped helps too.

    If stuffing, go easy on the cheese and peppers, or whatever you choose as a filling. It tends to expand, pop any seam open, and bubble out.

    Most any rub works well. I do them indirect, dome 325 - 350, turning a few times, till interior is 165. Time depends a lot on the thickness of the roll, & the amount of moisture in the ground meat.

    I did one the other night. I coated it with Maple syrup and then I put DP Swamp Venom on it. I cooked it indirect at 325 until it was 170 internal. I let it cool and wrapped it in foil. It was my lunch today and will be tomorrow's lunch also... :lol:
