    I was wanting to make a fattie tonight but the sky decided its gonna fall on us all day so the smoker is out. Curious if you can make one in an oven or do I need to figure out new dinner plans? Someone please let me know how to cook one in the oven if you can. Thanks

    I see no reason you can’t do a fatty in the oven.   [​IMG]

    You’ll just be giving up the great smoke flavor. 

    350 for a couple of hours ought to just about do it

    You may want to use a drip pan

    You can do it in the oven if you have to just make sure you get the proper internal temps. I would place a pan on the rack below the fatty to catch all the grease that drips out. I would cook it at 250-350 personally if I had to do one in the oven

    I guess I will find out then :) Im not sure my smoker does a whole lot for the flavor anyway. Its a cheapy... it makes great food but I think its more from the way it cooks than the smoke... its hard to get really good smoke out of it. Its one of the cheap master forge electrics.

      I'm with Jerry,

    The higher temps will give you a nice crisp bacon.

    Good luck

    I have made a fattie in the oven.  I just baked it at 350 and put it on a broiler pan with a drip pan underneath to catch all the grease.  I just cooked it to 170 IT and it came out great.
