    Do you use a thermometer when smoking a fatty? Do you put it in the middle in the stuffing? Do yu put in in the edge to get the meat temperature? I'm getting ready to try a bacon cheeseburger fatty.

    The dang forum keeps hanging up on me tonight. Anyhoo some folks put a probe thermo into the meat for the whole cook and some like me just cook the stuff for a while and check it with a Thermapen til it gets to 160*. Whatever works for you is the way to do it.

    I don't bother with a thermometer when doing fatties. Just watch the bacon (if you use it) and when it starts to turn crisp, start checking. I use an instant read digital thermometer and just poke it in the middle. If not to 165 degrees or so, give it another 15 minutes. Hope this helps.
  4. put it in the middle to make sure the stuffing is 160-165 this will insure that everything is done.
