Time to make the fatty. No I’m not talking about increasing my ever growing girth. I’m talking about what has quite possibly became my favorite weekend morning breakfast. The fatty in it’s simplest form
is basically bulk sausage rolled in rub, tossed on to a grill or smoker and smoked to an internal temperature of 160f. Then it’s usually sliced and served on some sort of bread. This morning were going with homemade buttermilk biscuits.
I would normally use the UDS (Ugly Drum Smoker for this) but keeping true to my word I’m going to do it on my Webber kettle grill to show, anybody with any type of grill, can do this.
Since I’m using a spicy sausage, I’ll use a nice sweet rub to soften the strong flavor of the sausage, and smoke.
I begin by lighting my coals in a chimney starter.
First and probably the only slightly challenging part of this cook, is taking the sausage out of the package without losing it’s form. I have found it’s best just to use a pair of scissors to cut the end off, then cut down one side and “peel” the wrapping back.
Once it comes off the your grill/smoker then let it rest for about 10 minutes to allow the juices to recede back into the meat to keep it moist.
All now that’s is left is the slicing and serving. Since we all already have a warm grill, we can place our cheese covered fatties, and biscuit halves back on the grill, for one last hit of smoke while we melt the cheese.
If you try this let me know how it goes.
