    I appologize for the wierd initial post. My web browser and TapaTalk on my iPhone revolted. I couldn't do anything but reply to the post in order to add more pics.

    But this is my first fatty. Sausage, potato (home fries) and cheese. I kept it simple because I'd never done one and didn't wanna make a mess of things. I used 2lbs of sausage. Hind sight 1 would have been plenty. 2 just make it a tad too rich for some. Don't get me wrong, they gobbled it up. But I think I'd have been better off to make 2 fatties instead of one really thick/fat one. The bacon was nice but I foiled it while waiting for the rest of breakfast to finish. Because of the foiling the bacon got a little soft on me. But over all I am pleased and so was the family.

    2.5hrs at 300F on the Rec Tec. Next time I may back it down to 250-275 for 3hrs or the IT is around 170F.

    That's because that was my first cook! Gotta start somewhere so a nice bacon covered fatty seemed like a good start. This week though it will be 3 racks of baby backs and 2 butts.
