The meat out side cooks pretty fast How long should it really take to properly smoke a fatty
You need to use a thermometer to know for sure but normally they take me 2-3 hours depending on smoker temp
you bring it to a internene temperature of 160f
My exact answer as well.
My answer too. I have taken them to higher internal temp letting the bacon crisp and it hasn't hurt them going above 160... just make sure you are above 160 internal.
First I take my fatties to 160-165 also on the inside temp and you can raise the temp after it hits 150 or so and then you can crisp up the bacon alittle too.
heck, what more to say on this thread except don't have a blow out and enjoy your fatty
I shoot for 165. Bacon is usually crisp, if you use the thin cheap stuff......
Not to beat a dead horse or pig , but I shoot for the mid 160 range also. I get asked quite often, "How long do you cook it for?". Depending on what I'm doing, I say until the thermoter says xxx degrees.
I know it's obvious to seasoned smokers to smoke it until it hits X temp. But to a nube, it really helps to have a "and that should take ABOUT X at X degrees". that way we know. is this a 12 hr deal? a 2 hour deal???
2-3 hours for me at 225-250.
