OK so like others I never heard of a fattie until reading this forum yesterday. This is my first time using my MAK 2 Star general and also 1st time using my a-maz-n tube. I did let the tube flame for 10 minutes but it pretty much suffocated after 5 minutes until I opened the lid at the end and it kicked back up.... The fatties were 1 hot sausage and 1 sweet. The filling was freshly made mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, bell peppers, sweet vidalia onions and wrapped in bacon weave. They were each 1.5 lbs. sausage and nearly 2 packs (lbs. ?) of bacon . They were cooked at 225 using MAK hazelnut pellets until each hit 160 degrees on my maverick 733. The probes were only 1 degree apart at the end. I think it was a success.
