    Hi all - great hot summer day in KC - time to fire up the smoker! I got a 12 lb packer from Price Chopper for $1.49 / lb. Using my own rub -but first coated with mustard.

    Also trying my first fatty - a breakfast fatty. It rolled up OK but am concerned I overstuffed so placed in a bread pan to smoke to hold any blowouts!

    We're up to 83 degrees in meat so stay tuned!

    good looking morning - no wind, hot and humid!

    Fatty ready for rolling (eggs, bacon, onions, cream cheese)

    Fire ready to go - home made charcoal basket on CGP w/SFB - wood chunks on side - per an earlier post of mine

    Up and running - I seperated flat and point because I'll be limited for time later and want to get it done just a bit sooner - flat is probably 8 lbs or so.

    more later!

    OK here's my first ever fatty - really good - I wish I made more because my teenage boys are up and hungry (I got first dibs!)

    Amazing that once you eat one - your mind instantly goes to what else you can stuff!

    Great looking smoke! If you wrap the bacon around like this one, there is less chance of a major blowout (unless you don't like bacon as much as I do)[​IMG] .

    On edit: Not trying to hijack your thread, just showing an example.

    can you say Plateau???? Getting ready to make beans to put on - my own recipe but somewhat similar to Dutch's - though not as sweet.

    closure on this thread - the following is the final temp graph for the smoke. I wrapped at about 165 and bumped the heat closer to 250 to finish it out. Unfortunatley, I couldnt find the camera at slicing time and 6 others in the house wanted food so couldnt get final pics.
