    So last night I made my first fattie, which was the 2nd time I used my new grill as a smoker with the firebox. Thanks to FMCowboy who's recipe I pretty much copied. I used just plain ground pork. Didn't put any rub on the meat. Used pepperonis (and used the idea to nuke them for 20 seconds in the microwave on a paper towel to cook out some of the grease). I also used a mix of fresh mushroom, onion, green pepper, and some minced garlic and sauted it on the stove. I then put some mozzerella cheese in there (forgot to take a pic of that step)

    I kept the temp at 225-250 and cooked it for 2.5 hours. The internal temp was about 170-175 when I pulled it off. It tasted really good. I did not think it was dry. I couldn't really taste the pepperonis. I think I should have put more in. I'm gonna make a couple more Saturday morning (probably try some new ingredients) along with some ABT's. My pepper plants (banana & jalepeno) are about to fall over they have so many peppers on them!

    Looks good jdsmith, congrats on your first one.
    You ever have any leftovers you can freeze them and thaw over and over and cut slices off as you need them, nuke or fry in a pan, toss on a biscuit with an egg and you have a great Breakfast sandwich.
