  1. when u make a fattie do u suppose to let the cooked fixins inside cool down before u roll it up so u can get a proper temperature reading. i was thinking of doing philly cheese steak

    Yes, thoroughly cook and cool any filling ingredients before placing them in the center and rolling the fattie.

    I didn't and it worked out fine. but I also didn't stick a therm in it until it looked done and when I did, it was 165. You gotta think about it like this, the actually meat that needs cooking is only about 1/2" around the outside. How long is it really going to take to get that meat to a safe temp. everything in the middle is already cooked. so just watch it and when it gets to temp in the middle you should be fine either way

    I roll mine like a pinwhell so when I'm done I have meat from the outside all the way to the middle, so I guess it is a matter of how you roll your fattie. 

    I've only made one fattie that used cooked ingredients and I let them cool a bit before I used them, maybe to just above room temp. Cooked till 165 in the center and then let rest 10-15 minutes.
