    Okay I mixed up some ground sirloin and bison last night and grilled/smoked on the smoker last night. I saved some of the raw meat to make a fattie, but I am a little unsure of times and temps. Any input here? All I figure on putting in it is some shredded hashbrawns, mushrooms, and some Blarney Castle cheese. I already mixed Garlic powder, webber's gourmet seasoning, and just a little kc masterpiece mesquite bbq sauce.
    I will try to take some clear pics and post on here later.
     
  2. I do my Fattys about 225/230 for about 3 hours... give or take

    Im loving the Bison Idea... be sure to show a QView[​IMG]
     
  3. I forgot to add... I try to blast the heat up towards the end to try and crisp the bacon a bit

    Thats the beautiful thing about a fatty they are very forgiving and you can do them at pretty much any temp your are smoking at. If you are doing a butt low and slow at 215-225 thats fine and if you are doing a turkey a little higher at 250-300 thats fine as well. The just get done a little quicker or longer depending on what temp you are smoking at. I just probe them and pull them once they reach 160. It also depends how thick you make them as well.

    Personally, I would only take it until the bacon wrap was done and not a second more. The sirloin and bison both have a very low fat content and it could dry out easily if left too long. I likes my red meats to still be red. [​IMG]
