    I appreciate all of the suggestions. Ive decided to go with ground pork filled with dirty rice made with andouille sausage.

    Show us some pics of the fatties, what kind of smoker do you have?

    @redheelerdog I will start posting pics later this morning. My smoker is a modded oklahoma joe highland. I put in the tuning plate, sealed the firebox with rtv, and have door gaskets on the cc and fb. Also added a couple of grate level gauges.

    Ok here we go. Lets start with our libations. First is from a local brewery called Reinstone. I have never had their beers. This is a Rye IPA in a 22oz bomber bottle.


    Next is a 6 pack of Two Brothers Red Rye Ale, another I have never had before.


    Now we start getting to food. My first bacon weave, courtesy of the doodette.


    More to follow.

    The first fatty is a cheeseburger fatty with mushrooms, onions, swiss cheese, and pickles.

    Pickles:

    Here is how we finished up. The cheeseburger fatty had no seasoning. I did put home made barbecue sauce on it at the finish. The rice fatty was dusted with slap ya mama cajun during assembly and slathered with the same sauce at the finish. Both came out great but I did over cook them. Something is wrong with the maverick so I need to get it taken care of. I also made some stuffed potatoes wrapped with bacon and the doodette surprised me with mushroom caps stuffed with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and crab (mine had shrimp because I dont like crab much). The caps went into the fridge for another day. The finish pics suck as the food had been attacked and honestly I was quite full of libations when I finally went inside to eat.

    This tray was stuffed full of abt. Addictive little suckers and a guaranteed hit.


    Here is the first fatty:


    Fatty 2:


    And a tater shot:


    I didnt get any pics of the mushroom caps as they had been put away by the time I went inside. All in all a good meal albeit the fatties were a little over cooked. I am still learning the new okj, this is my second cook on it so I need improvement there but I cant complain though as the meal was great. I want to thank all the members here as this site was the reference I used to make everything and the mods I made to my smoker.

    Thanks! For those making cheeseburger fatties I really recommend the pickles. The flavor and crunch really added something in my opinion.
