    Simple question??? How long should I plan for a 1 to 2 pound fattie? Does the 1 1/2 hour per lb rule apply? Sooner? I'm smoking at 225 to 250. THANKS!!

    It will depend a little on fillings and how thick it is after you roll it but most of my fatties get done in 2-2 1/2 hours. Some of my bigger ones have taken 3 hours.

    165 degrees in the middle. Time is not important only smoke is important!

    But yeah, 2-3 hours or so, roughly.

    Thanks for the input. i agree that temp and smoke is the important thing....but if you're inviting people for "brunch" you don't want to miscalculate by a couple of hours!![​IMG]

    You smoke by temp not time (very important) So just start your smoke earily and wrap it in foil then towels and put in a small cooler. Remember to fill the cooler with towels and it will stay hot for 3-4 hours I know we do it all the time. Happy smoking.

    I dont smoke my fatties by temp because the pork area is usually too thin and I fear my probe will be probing more filling then pork. But, I smoke them for 3 hours, and I have not yet had a fattied under done. I have used as much as 2 lbs of pork for a fattie, and my temps range from 240 - 270, and 3 hours has always done it. I know my temps are a bit higher than most suggest, but that is the range my smoker wants to run at to get steady temps.
