    After seeing all of the Qview in the Fatties section I knew I had to try it. Last night I made a breakfast fatty and a bacon cheeseburger fatty. The breakfast fatty was filled with scrambled eggs, homefries, and shredded chedder cheese. The bacon cheeseburger fatty was made with 90/10 ground sirloin and ground veal instead of sausage and stuffed with onions, pickles, ketchup, mustard, and longhorn style colby cheese.

    Got up this morning and started smoking. Was a bit cool first thing in the morning (27 F) but it was nice and warm by the smoker. Enjoy the Qview...

    Fatties on the smoker. The bacon cheesburger fatty was huge and my bacon weave wasn't big enough to cover it all.

    Thanks - I had a lot of fun making them. My wife was a bit nervous. She didn't know how it would tast with all of that bacon on them, but when she tasted them she said they were fantastic.

    Good looking fatties! I like the idea of using pickles in the cheeseburger one. Gotta have some pickle on a cheeseburger!

    Great Qview!

    Man you have done a great job on the your fatties. I think that this must be fattie time of year cause it seams like almost every thread is a fattie. But yours came out great but I think you might have spread your sausage alittle thin for me thou but you are the one eating them. Great job and keep on smoking.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    Mballi - yeah, I think I went a little thin on the sausage myself. Next time I'll try a pound and a half of sausage instead of one pound like I used this time.

    Still tastes pretty dang good though!

    Your first?!

    Great job. I've never tried one with beef. Both of your's look great.

    Tom,
    Great job - both look delicious. Your weave looks a heck of a lot better than mine do.

    One question: You trust, I mean really trust, your boy Curtis, right? [​IMG]
    Thanks for sharing.

    Tracey - thanks for the kind words. I learned how to do the weave by searcing this site and picking up pointers. I trust my boy Curtis to a certain point. You'll notice I didn't stray too far while he was around the food.

    Dude - thanks for the points. I was pretty happy with the ground sirloin/ground veal mix. The smoker is fairly new. It was an early Christmas present to myself. It's the 18 1/2" model of the WSM. I've smoked chicken breasts a couple of times, chicken halves a couple of times, a meatloaf, and now a couple of fatties. They'll be some baby backs going on it Christmas Eve and I will post Qview!

    Thanks again to all.
