‘Lil Fatties Recipe

Recipe by BBQHawksCourse: AppetizersCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy


Prep time


Cooking time






  • Stuffing
  • 4 lbs Jimmy Dean’s Breakfast Sausage

  • ¾ cup oregano

  • ¼ cup freshly ground pepper

  • ¼ cup garlic powder

  • For the Poppers
  • 2 lbs Pepper Jack cheese

  • 7-10 Jalapenos

  • 3 lbs Bacon

  • 1 bottle of Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce (or your favorite BBQ sauce)

  • 1 box of toothpicks


  • Cut cheese into small bite sized cubes.  Cut jalapenos in half and clean. Cut into small chunks the same size as the cheese cubes.
  • Cut bacon slices into thirds.
  • Wrap a meatball sized piece of seasoned sausage around 1 piece of cheese and 1 piece of jalapeno chunk.  Wrap with bacon and secure in place with a toothpick.  Do these 115 more times!!
  • Start your Big Green Egg.  With a plate setter upside down or other indirect cooking method, place and smoke at 350.  I use hickory or mesquite wood chips.  Don’t forget a drip pan, those grease fires will get ya’.   After about 20-25 min, or when you determine your ‘lil fatties are about done, baste with Raspberry chipotle sauce.  What I do is pour your chipotle sauce into a bowl and drop the ‘lil fatties in.  Completely cover and place back on the grill for another 10-15 min smoke.
  • Pull off the grill and share with a hundred of your closest egg-thusiasts!!
