    Yes, it's Chicken.  

    I apologize, I thought the pictures were pretty self explanatory.

    Did you make that basket you put the fatty in to smoke or is it factory?

    Yeah, I wanna know what that is? I've done a few fatties and they tend to kinda "sag" and spread out a bit while cooking, when they soften up. This contraption looks like it will help hold the shape a bit better until they firm up while cooking. My only complaint about fatties is the bacon in the smoker seems to get more rubbery than anything. Makes it harder to cut into good slices without "smooshing" things out - maybe I need better super-duper sharper knives.

    I wondered if this metal grating would help the bacon kind of "crisp up" a little bit, though...

    I believe that is a roasting rack out of a roaster, like you put in the oven, and that mat is a frog mat or q matz

    I will have to say that is mighty fine.   Nice looking hottie fatty 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker
