    Well I got back from the lake in time to do a fatty on the new GOSM. It was my first smoke and my first fatty, so I was a little worried about the outcome. I did a green pepper, onion, mushrooms, and cheese. I diced all the veggies... It either needed a lot more veggies, or they needed to be cut bigger. Probably a little bit of both, actually. So the end result was it was a little too meaty, IMHO, but still absolutely delicious! The wife and I were already discussing what to try on the next one! Without further ado, here's the Q-View!

    EDIT - Hi to Seboke! It was his Ribs and Fatty thread w/ awesome Q-View that got me wanting to try it and his advice that got me started!

    EDIT #2 - Okay, pics should be working now. I uploaded them to my regular photo host, but it wasn't working. I gave up last night and put them on Photobucket this morning. Hope everyone enjoys the Q-view!

    Everything laid out and about to get rolled:

    Got a little TBS rolling out... Don't know if it shows up here or not!

    Dripping with juice and ready to come off.. .Exactly 160 degrees :)

    And last but not least, the guts. Like I said, needed a little more "stuff" in there, but it was still amazing!

    Smoke may be a tad to thin, no smoke ring, looks great though! [​IMG]

    That was one mighty fine JUICY looking fatty! Props to you on the successful tasty treat!

    I did my first fatty over the wknd and was disappointed with the dryness cause I overcooked. With the exception of the missing smoke ring, glad to see yours turned out, and tasted, well!

    Thanks! It was very tasty. I didn't want to go overboard with the smoke, so I just smoked it for about the first hour and then let it go without smoke for the second hour, so that might explain it. Somewhere I've got pics of a lot thicker smoke, but I chose this one for some reason. This one was a learning experience, so hopefully it'll be even better the next time, if that's possible!

    sumosmoke - I pulled mine out at an internal temp of exactly 160 and it was perfectly juicy. I need to pick up a BBQ thermometer so I don't have to keep fiddling with opening the door and checking it, but 160 seems to be the magic number on a fatty!

    Great lookin fatty there jf!!! [​IMG] Thanks for the public praise!!! Try it with a bacon wrap next time. Yours didn't look dry, but the bacon will help keep it from drying out a bit (sumosmoke). And bacon, IMHO, can make banana puddin' taste better!!!

    OK, I owe you some points. Given out too many today. [​IMG]
