In a bowl combine well the pork butt, the pork fat, the garlic paste, the pepper, the sage, the thyme leaves, and the cayenne and chill the mixture, covered, overnight.
Divide the mixture into 16 balls and flatten each ball into a 1/3-inch-thick patty. Grill over charcoal (or gas) about 4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and no longer pink within. Drain them on paper towels. Transfer the patties to a serving plate and garnish them with some thyme sprigs.
Serve with biscuits and gravy or eggs.
