I have been wanting to try a cook a Fattie for a while so I decided to cook some up and bring them into work for lunch for all to enjoy :grin:. For my 1st try they came out good but the bacon as not as crispy as I would have liked.
So I'm looking for tips on how to crispy up the bacon. I cooked them for about 3hrs at 240 ish them tossed in the broiler for a couple of mins ( I would prefer not use a broiler next time)

What temperature are you smoking the fatty at? I normally do fatties at 250-275 and cook till the bacon is crisped up. When the bacon is crisped the inside is cooked.

The bacon weave was an added option developed some time after the fatty name was coined. Perhaps thin sliced bacon will solve your problem.

Very nice, good job. I love fattys! :hungry:
I do fattys at about 300F, to an internal temperature of 165F. They cook in 1 - 1 1/2 hours and the bacon weave crisps up nicely.

I do mine at higher temps too and use thin bacon.

I have had success with the thin bacon, cooking at around 275 to an internal of about 180
