    Below you will find pics of our first Fattie! I am actually new at the whole Smoker thing....
    Question: I am having trouble getting my smoker (a stand-up barrel type with two levels and a water pan) to stay at the "Ideal" temperature according to the thermometer.... Any suggestions?

    start with checking you thermo against a digital or even another dial type... oh and welcome to the smf.

    oh ya.... in my opinion those thermos that say Ideal, hot, cool.... or whatever are junk... add another to your smoker...also your fattie looks great..
     
  4. My only suggestions, get a good digital thermometer with a probe to properly monitor smoker temps and internal meat temps.

    And you might consider making some of the modifications to the smoker. I am having a dumb day, someone will be along shortly with a link to the mods you need to make. They are fairly simple and extremely effective.

    Fattie looks awesome, love the pattern with the bacon

    I have probed the Fattie with a digi thermometer and it seems to be holding at 170+ degrees....

    It has been cooking for about 3.75 hours so far.....
