    Ive never taken temp on any of my fatty's. I just smoke it at 225-250 for at least 3 but no more than 4 hours and pull em off. I usually do them by sight. I wait for the bacon to become nice and dark brown and crispy. But thats just my taste. Good luck! I LOVE a good fatty!!

    Well, it's not too late to start. [​IMG] Although I would say at those times and temps you'll probably be okay. Nice to be sure though. Only takes a seconds and it beats the hell out of crapping it out at high velocity the next day. [​IMG]

    I have always taken my fatties to atleast 165 is a good safe temp. Also you have to make sure what you stuff inside the fattie is atleast par cooked if not cooked all the way too. [​IMG]
