Smokin' a Fatty

The Fatty: A bacon-wrapped stuffed sausage you'll want to experience again and again.

What’s a Fatty, you ask? The history of the Fatty is seemingly a short one, having first been mentioned in competitive barbecue circles back in 2004 where the term “Fatty” was coined to describe a popular dish that pitmasters were making at the time. The original Fatty (often now called the Naked Fatty) is a 1lb. roll of breakfast sausage (such as Jimmy Dean) that may be seasoned with barbecue rubs and placed on a smoker for a couple of hours. 

The Fatty’s popularity grew among barbecue enthusiasts and soon after, variations of the Fatty stuffed with anything you can imagine began to appear on the scene, and have taken a foothold. Today, the term Fatty can be used to describe anything that is essentially rolled pork sausage, stuffed with anything from cheese to vegetables, eggs to bacon, wrapped in more bacon and seasoned or sauced to taste.
