Default First Fattie

I'm going to attempt my first fattie this weekend and would like some feedback. Thought I would try something like a bacon weave, sweet Italian sausage with Canadian Bacon and smoked Gouda cheese as the inside most layer. I plan on smoking over indirect charcoal and hickory on a Weber 22" kettle with a water pan at 275 until my thermopen says it's done. I am open to any and all comments and suggestions, though as I really want this to turn out. Thanks, all!

Do your bacon weave on a diagonal and when you construct the bacon weave, start with a cross of bacon, crossed at the center, and work your way left/right and up/down from there.

Get your ends of the sausage closed up real good so you don't lose all your cheese.

Sounds like a good combo to me!

Thanks peeps! Great advice. Has anyone ever posted a video on this site showing how to do the bacon weave?

I like to use thin bacon, it crisps up nice. Also fatties don't benefit from low and slow cooking so I up the temp to 300-325F for a crisper outer layer. 275 works too, just might want to bump it up a bit for the finish.

Sounds like you've got a plan. It may be your first but it won't be your last.

Awesome advice y'all and thanks for the help. Cowgirl I didn't think about the temps to crisp the bacon - I doubt it would taste right with soft, soggy bacon.

Big George thought about a naked fattie but the weave is so cool - hope it won't be an epic fail for the first time. I guess, go big or go home

Thanks for the link Clint - I thought about looking in youtube but I wanted to make sure I followed the techniques of a BBQ Brethren.

Post some pics (as will I) even if you don't think it turned out. My weekend is busy building chicken houses but I still think there's time to do the fatty and some stuffed pork chops.
