Another Fatty question

Hi Guys,
About to try smoking my first couple of fatties. Do you thaw them before you smoke them? The ones I got today were in the Freezer section. Also, do you use a thermometer or do you just go for 3 hrs?

Thanks.

Chris

You are going to want them thawed cseymour. I am guilty of not probing fatties sometimes, but you probably should. You'll want them to go to 165° internal.

Thanks Guys,
We'll see how it goes. This is a real trial for me. First fatties and I get to play with the new Maverick Thermometer.

Working from home has never been so much fun :)

Thanks.

Chris

Hey Cheech,
Didn't have time for pictures, but the fatties came out great. Wife and kids were pleasantly surprised.

Looking forward to next smoke, probably a couple of chickens or Boston butt, or maybe both :).

These forums have been great. Everyone is so helpful and friendly.

Thanks.

Congrats on your first fatties Chris! Gonna be hard to smoke anything now without a fatty or two to snack on I bet. ;)

Nice job. Other than burning or over smoking, you can't go wrong with fatties.
