    I finally got around to smoking a couple of fatties on my UDS. I wanted to keep it simple and go with some flavors we knew so I made a Jalapeno Swiss Mushroom and a Bacon Cheeseburger. Here are some Q-View.

    The JSM Fatty. I only did half jalapeno because my daughter isn't a big jalapeno fan but loves mushrooms and Swiss cheese. I then wrapped it in a bacon weave.

    The Bacon Cheeseburger Fatty. I fried some bacon before putting it in the meat and smothering with cheddar cheese. Again, wrapped in a bacon weave.

    Placed on the UDS. I used a cooking grate wrapped in foil for a heat deflector. It was placed approx 6" from the top of the coals which was lump mixed with apple and Jack Daniels chips. The smell was amazing.

    After 3 or so hours at 225°ish and the last 1/2 hour at 240-250°, IT was 170°. Time to pull them off. 2Lb's of ground beef was used to make each then and with the stuffing and all, each fatty was approx 2.5Lbs when all said and done.

    The Bacon Cheeseburger.

    The JSM.

    A slice of each one. Served with my wife's wonderful cole-slaw (not pictured). The whole meal was phenomenal. Only thing I would change is maybe a little more cheese on both and more jalapenos on the JSM.

    Nice fatties! My wife is not interested in me making any fatties. She thinks I already eat too much smoked meat. I make some anyway. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks again.Kathryn, I didn't want to flood the whole post with UDS build pics that's why I only posted the pic and then a link to my PB gallery. There is a link to the build thread below my posts but just now realized that it can't be seen by a member reading on their phones or on the mobile site. Here is a link to it for those readers., thanks for the tute and the great fatty feedback. All I have to say is, if you haven't done one of these yet, no matter what flavors they are, you have got to try one. They are amazing.Chad

    I am having problems convincing she who must be obeyed that fatties are a good idea. I might just do one and take the beating after seeing these pictures.

    I have always wondered though, don't they get greasy with all that bacon wrapped around them or does most of it drip off?

    I used 80/20 ground beef and I didn't think they were all that greasy. No more than a regular bacon cheeseburger or JSM burger. Actually, I think they were less greasy. Maybe most of it drips off. As for the bacon being greasy, it wasn't even close to being as greasy as frying it up on a skillet or pan. I was pleasantly surprised.
