The infamous Fatty

     Fatties are becoming popular across the country.  They’re easy and versatile.  A fatty is simply a 1 pound pack(chub) of breakfast sausage.  The brands available here in North Texas are mainly Jimmy Dean and Owens.  The offered flavors are Mild, Regular, Hot, Maple and Italian.  Simply choose a couple of different flavors and begin.  Heat your smoker to 225-250 degrees.  Use a sharp knife and carefully cut the sausage wrapper off.  Try to keep the original shape of the sausage.  Simply place on the grates and smoke for 2-3 hours until internal temps reach 165 degrees.  Slice and eat.  They go great on biscuits.  We only slice as needed.  Makes easy breakfast during the week.  Just slice a couple of pieces and they in the pan when your eggs are done.  Or throw them in the microwave and eat between toast.  They offer many options.

      There are endless options when it comes to fatties.  You can try different BBQ rubs and other seasonings on them also.  Or you can stuff them with cheese and jalapenos and make Armadillo eggs.  Same as plain ones, you can stuff them with just about anything.  Use your imagination.  Let me know what you try.
