i want to do a couple of fatties for a work x-mas party on my mes 40, along with some garlic sausage and riblets. but my main question is...will the bacon on the fatty get crispy if i have about an inch of water in the water pan? i know the moisture floating around the chamber will keep everything juicy. but will the bacon crisp up? i have never done fatties before so this is new to me. if the bacon does not crisp up..would there be any problems tossing them on a grill for a few minutes to get it crispy?

Here ya go guys:
I stole this GREAT IDEA from "lowcountrygamecock" on a new post.
I don't think he'll mind, since I credit him.
I haven't been on in a while but was looking for new fattie recipes for a Christmas cookout and saw several people mention the bacon not being done when the fattie reaches 165. Here's a quick easy solution that I use for that problem. Go to Lowes/Home Depot and get one of those hand held torches that go on the end of a small propane tank. You can get the kit with the easy trigger, tank and all for 25 bucks or get the cheapo version for around 15 without the trigger. Works great for last minute bacon crisping and a ton of other stuff around the house.
