Smoking a Fatty

It’s really not what you think. It’s BETTER than what you think.


Testing the hobo drum’s ability as a smoker: A log of sausage, stuffed with peppers, onions and potatoes, smoked, which among barbecue aficionados is called a fatty. I call it Breakfast Log; just fry up some eggs alongside that shit and go to town.

Hobo drum verdict: Success in the extreme, behold the pink smoke ring. It is a thing of beauty and joy forever.

It is ON.

  1. OMG – Fatties are my new favorite food and I’ve never even had one! Had never heard of this, but the genius that came up with stuffing a sausage with peppers, onions and potatoes needs to be canonized….

  2. Okay I’ve ready about these on other blogs. What do you do? Just get a log of breakfast sausage and flatten out? Do you just put whatever you want inside? Does anything need to be cooked down a little first? How long on the smoker? Temp? Generalized recipe?

    I will try this, it will kill me, it will probably be worth it.

  3. Karen – Sausage flattened out, filled with whatever you want, and smoked for two hours at 250. I cooked the potatoes in a little butter first, but I don’t know if you have to.
