My first fatties are on the GOSM and cooking nicely! I decided to go with American cheese and tots

Here are the prep pics:

I couldn't figure out what to do about the ends of the bacon so I just toothpicked 'em in.

I also was having so much fun building them that I forgot to season them at all - but then again they probably don't really need any

Done! They turned out well - though not as magical as the brisket I made last weekend.

I think that I had rather have the fatty than the brisket...Good job.

Great pics, looks like a professional photographer took them. Fatties look good maybe try them with thin sliced bacon or none next time and see if they don't taste better? Or fresh ingredients in it like onions will add alot

I did my first fattie a couple weeks or so ago too, and it is really fun to make. I have to make more next time because they just didn't last long.

btw, hope you don't mind, I just set that starry pic to my PC's background. Beautiful picture.

Sorry to bump up my old thread here - but I have a question:

My bacon didn't get as done as it should have.

I had these in the smoker for about 3 hours and 45 minutes at 225 and then I turned the heat all the way up (I took the thermometer out to keep it from getting fried but I expect it was at 300 or more) for the last 15 minutes to try to crisp up the bacon.

At the 4 hour mark the internal temp hit 170 and I felt like I had to pull them off the smoker or risk messing up the insides - but the outside still wasn't done enough.

Has anyone else had this problem? Should I just crank the heat to max earlier next time?
