    Hello, All.

    I will be attemting my first fattie smoke (along with my first QVIEW) in the next day or two and had a few questions for the group. It will consist of a 1 pound maple sausage stuffed with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, and veggies.

    1. what is the ideal smoking temp?
    2. should I flip it over halfway through the cook time?
    3. about how long will it take?
    4. what temp should I pull it off at?
    5. once it comes off the smoker, do I wrap it and if so, how long should it "rest"?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I would smoke it at 250 with no flipping. Cook until internal is 165 which depending on how much filling there is could take 2-3 hours. When I pull mine off I rest it for about 30-45 minutes and just put a little foil over the top. Sometimes they dont last 30-45 minutes[​IMG]

    Good luck and dont forget the qview.

    I smoke my fatties at 230-240 for a temp and they take around 2 1/2- 3 hours to smoke and thats an interal temp of 165-170. You don't flip them at all because you would probally break it and that would be a sin. After you have made it to the right temp justlet it rest for alittle while 20-30 minutes. Most of that time is for it to stiffen up so you can easly cut it.

    Agreed - anywhere from 230 - 260 would be fine on temp, I would think...and the resting will help firm up the inside, so the cheese doesn't run out when sliced. Pull at 165 - 170 for best results! Have fun...
