This past weekend, I broke in my new mini-WSM.  I decided that a fattie was the way to go.

I went with ground beef instead of sausage.  I used the steps in the fattie sticky to build it.  Sorry I don't have any rolling pictures, I didn't think to take them.  One is spinach, provolone and mozzarella.  The other is spinach, sharp cheddar, sauteed onions and garlic and mozzarella.  I was very happy with my bacon weave, it looked great.

As much as it pains me to say this, but I will go with less bacon next time.  We tasted nothing but bacon.  While that's not normally a bad thing, I wanted to taste the rest of the ingredients.  Maybe if I use sausage it would have been different.  I'll either use a bacon wrap that has bigger gaps, or just wrap the bacon around it.

But we will do this again.  I kept the temp around 225F and cooked these for about 2 - 2.5 hours.  I used hickory and apple chunks.
