After receiving a Expert Grill Charcoal Water Smoker from my wife for Christmas, I spent the last week gaining so much valuable knowledge from the members of this site! Thank you everyone that contributes, I've learned so much already. After curing my smoker I followed the suggesting of throwing a Fatty on. I attempted one with a bacon weave, 1 lb of breakfast sausage, spinach and pepper jack cheese. The bacon weave was fairly easy after watching a Youtube video and after following step by step instructions by Smokinal the fatty rolling came out nicely.
I put it on for about 2 hours @ 225-240 degrees and finished it in the oven @450 for about 8 minutes to crisp the bacon.[/ATTACH]

Nice looking fattie. You've either moved elsewhere and maintained your Orange roots, or you're very brave....'cuz it's WAY too cold to do any smoking here in CNY! (Five below this morning....)Go Orange!

Great work on that fatty! Looks great.

I bet your kitchen smelled great when you put that smoked fatty in the oven to crisp the bacon.

BTW - I use thin sliced bacon on most of the time on fatty's I do and smoke them at 275F and the bacon crisps nicely in the smoker.
