    I'm doing my first fattie on my MES. What do I put in the water pan and do I chill the fattie in the frig or freezer before putting it in the smoker?
  2. Water in pan

    It helps to have the fattie wrapped and chilled to help keep shape but is not necessary.

    Happy smoking
  3. I do both with my fatties

    Like 10 min in the freezer shld be good

    Okay, it doesn't look so great, but it tasted delicious. Mild Italian sausage for base. I added grated Asiago, mozzarella, and parmesan. I added more Italian seasoning and just some simple spaghetti sauces from a jar, followed by more cheese and ricotta. I'll leave out the ricotta next time and perhaps try sliced cheeses instead of grated. Anyway, here's the Qview.

  5. Looks good from here... Nice job

    Water in the pan. Now there are alot of folks here that say to put apple juice in the pan and I have many many times and I haven't found any differance in the flavor of the meat so water. Your fatties looks great and you shopuld be really proud and I hope really full too.[​IMG]

    I agree on the apple juice not making any diff in the pan, so I just use water. My Engineer Son tried to explain the mass thing and how it works on the heat, but I told him I just need to know it works not alll the science behind it lol

    Looks good to me [​IMG] I do like to get mine very cold in the freezer before putting them in the smoker it seems to help me get them on with breaking them open

    [​IMG]Good looking fattie. Truth be told, I don't use any pan. I let it drip & burn the fat the next day when I am cleaning / seasoning my grills. But I understand that you have a MES so, when in Rome................
