Hello from Georgia!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I got tired of watching my neighbor turn out some incredible meats with his little electric smoker, so I've been browsing around here and took the plunge on the GOSM (wide-body version). I just got it assembled last night and unfortunately I won't be in town this weekend to try it out, so it'll be another week or so before I get to do my first smoke on it :(

I'm dying to do a fatty, and I've seen some pics of people rolling their fatties and smoking them, but I haven't seen anything on ideal temps, suggestions, and etc on them. Can anyone clue me in? Thanks for the input and I'll see yall around!

Welcome to the SMF Jeff!! Take the fatties to about 160.

Thanks for the welcome! I've been digging around the site a little more and found someone mentioning 160 as being ideal for a fatty. I'm dying to try it! Should be plenty of Q-view too... I'm something of an amateur photographer, so smoking the meat will be just as fun as documenting it!

Welcome to SMF. The 160 degree temp is the internal temp of the fatty. the smoker temp should be 230- 250 F. Plenty of good folks here to assist you on your journey into the addiction of smoke cooking. Ask all the questions you want

Welcome tot he SMF, a place to share good times and Q too! A fatty will usually be done when it hits around 160, smoke it at 225 if possible. Enjoy!

Glad you're with us at SMF, Jeff. Looking forward to the q-vue of your 1st fatty!

Friendly reminder - don't forget to season your smoker before cooking something in it! PDT_Armataz_01_18.gif

Thanks for the heads up on that. I was just looking into how to do that when I came back here and saw your reply. I'm thinking just coat the inside w/ oil and let it run for a while with some wood in the box and water in the pan?

EDIT - Actually, I looked around and found that I should clean the smoker with warm soapy water before anything, so that's what I did first, then I oiled her down, threw some wood and water in and fired her up! She's going to work as we speak :)

Time and Temp chart

Hey Jeff...

You can pull a good T&T chart from this link:


You may have to copy/paste the link in to your browser.

I can't take any credit for creating it. I found it floating out in the ether and thought it was worth sharing.

Welcome to the SMF! Fatties are one of my fave things to smoke and I usually
bring them to 160-165 also. Once you do one you will be addicted, there are so many different combinations of "fillings" you can stuff 'em with.
