    Here is my first attempt at doin a Fattie:
    rolled,wrapped,seasoned & ready to smoke

    into the smoker she goes

    pulled off smoker @175*...maybe too long, lost most of my cheese

    guess it's ok for my first one

    Thanks for looking, any input would be greatly appreciated!!

    Looks pretty good. Where did you loose the cheese from. I didn't see any blow-outs?

    thanks guys, not sure about the cheese loss..when I cut it in half to take pics, didn't see any cheese there. It was a very basic fattie for my first try:
    scrambled eggs, onion,bell pepper,mushrooms & sharp chedder.

    looks very good, sometime the cheese just get sucked into the meat on mine, I learned to use slies rather the shedded on some cheeses. Thats what works for me

    There, see, it wasn't that bad was it and you got a real nice one on your first attempt. [​IMG]
    Now, you asked for suggestions: Any "secrets ingredients" you want to share? As in, what was the sprinkle rub or spice you used on the outside?

    A thought: perhaps you didn't use enough cheese? Once you get a cheese blowout, you'll know when too much was used[​IMG].

    Once you get a blowout, AND light a small cheese / grease fire in your electric smoker, you know you used too much. [​IMG]

    The only spice that was used was Tony Chachere's creole seasoning. I wanted to keep my first one simple. As for the cheese disappearing, I think that you may be right, that I didn't use enough. Next time I don't think that I will use shredded cheese either.

    Now that is a thing of beauty for sure. Now you will have to keep on trying the cheese part till you get it down. I have never had a problem with cheese ooping out. But you do get some [​IMG]for the first one thou.
