Smoking a Fatty

Smoking a fatty is simple and delicious. You can easily make several… up to as many as your pit will hold. If you have your sausage didn’t come in a log form, simply roll it into one. Many people like to flatten their fatty and add fillings like cheese, jalapeños, or any other tasty filling.




  • A 16oz log of Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Sausage
  • Enough BBQ Rub to cover the log


  1. The recipe is as follows: take a log of Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Sausage (or any other brand of your choosing), remove it from the packaging, and roll it in your favorite BBQ Rub. Be sure to get good coverage. Smoke this log for a couple of hours between 225-250°F or until you reach the Jimmy Dean recommended internal temperature of 160°F. Slice into mouth-watering medallions and prepare to be popular.
  2. These are perfect little appetizers and/or breakfast food… they go perfectly on a bagel with some cream cheese. you can do an internet search and find a multitude of variations for barbecuing a fattie, but I recommend trying this simple version first.
