    I got my Maverick ET-73 in the mail today and decided I needed to give it a try. I did the boiling water test and all was good so I decided to make a ham and cheese fattie for both my first attempt at a fattie and my first trial run with the new thermometer.

    Here it was when I put it in the smoker. Sorry for the lack of pics during the prep but I didn't have time to take any.

    Pulled it at 165*.

    Here's a shot of the inside (some of the cheese oozed out when I cut it but I shoved it back in before eating it) ......... got a pretty decent smoke ring and it was pretty tasty. Definitely not an award winning fattie but as a first attempt, I'm pretty satisfied with it.

    The Maverick thermometer rocks and was well worth the money. [​IMG]

    PS..I did a fattie last weekend and used the string cheese for the first time, it seems to hold together better and not melt to liquid....

    Thanks. Yes, I'm quite certain there will be many more fatties to come and I'll have to try the string cheese out soon.

    [​IMG]for that first fattie. That cheese tip was right on time. I hate when my cheese disintergrates on the reheat.
