    I had never even heard of fatties until I got a smoker and found these forums.....

    Here is my first attempt - - 2 fillings:  2 with Ham, Cheese, Potatoes.  2 with Hamburger, Greenbeans and Rice mixed with Cream of Mushroom soup.

    Looks really good so far! I too am a fan of the diagonal bacon weave. It seems to spread out and lay a little flatter..

    Sorry!   The post did some strange things when I started it - said a moderator had to approve it - then I watched and never saw it go up!  Then today - I see it!    Here is the end results.....

    Learned that I need to make the outside much thinner - more stuffing!

    No - I didn't use thick bacon.

    From the look of the fatties, you are on your way to being a pro!

    Mr Mac, the veggie comment is just down right funny.


    The pics loaded funny on my end, maybe the mod approval was because of the way you posted the last set of pics.

    The first set came up fine.

    Very nice job. Keep up the good work.
