    Sausage, Fatties, Thirdeye

    Smoked sausage logs have been around quite a while. Calling them "fatties" seems so fitting. Thanks go out to Bigdog, a member of The BBQ Brethren for the now famous nickname. I know I usually recommend grinding, mixing and stuffing your own sausage, but fatties are an exception. There are some store-bought logs that consistently turn out very good. Jimmy Dean and Bob Evans brands are at the top of the list for quality and seasonings. IIf you are into rolling-your-own fatties buy or make a batch of bulk sausage and roughly form it into one pound logs. Wrap the sausage in plastic wrap and tie a knot in one end. Twist the other end clockwise to tighten up the log, then refrigerate for an hour or so to let it set up.

    1 Fatties are a quick cook, 3 hours or less at temperatures between 215° and 270° measured at the grate. This means that anytime your cooker is running is a good time to toss one or two fatties on.
    2 Just slice the plastic tube and sneak the log out of the wrapper. Re-form if necessary.
    3 Season with a little rub if you like.
    4 Cook them to an internal temperature of 170° then rest in foil for around an hour before slicing. They are excellent with biscuits.
    5 That’s all there is. Now go smoke a fatty!

    For stuffing, make a thick patty and add filling in the center. Carefully form into a log and follow the instruction from above.

    For EGGtoberfest I used Jimmy Dean Sage breakfast sausage stuffed with salami, provolone, and bell pepper. I applied Ken Stone’s Witchy Red rub to the outside.

    If I smoke them for the nest day I sometimes pull at 150° internal and wrap in foil with a little apple juice and return to the cooker until they reach 170°. Leave them in foil, cool down and refrigerate, slicing the next day. Reheating in the microwave or skillet works great.

    The store-bought ones do have a higher meat to fat ratio, but the cook time renders a lot of the grease out. The mass helps keep them moist. If you have a multiple grate set-up in your cooker, try fatties on the top grate and chicken, meatloaf or pit beef underneath.
