    So I decided I needed a fatty. Marinated some chicken overnight in my favorite fajita marinade. Cut it up and sauteed it with some onion and green pepper. So far so good. As I let that cool, I get the smoker ready. Come back in, roll out my sausage (1lb JD original). Put down some Mexican cheese blend, then the chicken, peppers and onions. Then some more cheese. [​IMG] Then just a bit of my favorite salsa. Get it all rolled up and wrapped with bacon. Was the worst roll yet of the (only) 3 that I have done. No biggie, I'lll survive.

    Get it into the smoker at around 225* and go out front with my oldest son to take pics of some motorcycle parts my husband wants to get rid of (anyone need a helmet or some exhaust pipes or some handlebars?) Get those done and go to check on my smoke and it is almost at 400*!!! What the heck?!?!?!?

    Oh yea, that silly old water pan. I forgot to put that in[​IMG] . So it's now in and temp is back down. BUt bacon looks a little well done to say the least.

    I did take some pics but my computer is down (using my son's) and well I don't want my stuff on his computer (and I'm sure he doesn't either). So maybe I can post them from work tomorrow. (Unless I can talk dh into fixing the computer tonight).

    Sounds like you got a rough start, good luck on getting it all straightened out.

    Nothing wrong with crispy bacon, how did the fattie turn out? If it wasn't at 400° for a long time it probably came out alright.

    So-so. I took what I didn't "sample" up to my sister and parents. They said it was good. But my mom loves me and would never tell me different. [​IMG] I think next time I need to use something in addition to or in replace of the sausage. While I am a sausage fan it's almost too "sausagey" (is that a word?) for my liking. I have seen alot of others that use ground beef, turkey, Italian sausage and the likes. Just need to decide which to try.

    I posted all my stuff on craigslist and have already gotten rid of most of it. This afternoon I posted 2 free lawn tractors (needed a bit of work) and my husband had almost 30 calls in 18 minutes. He called me and said "Delete that post NOW!!!" So needless to say that is gone too. i definitely hate putting stuff out for trash that still has good life in it. Luckily most of my kids stuff I can pass down to nieces, nephews, cousins. Try to do my part as much as possible. I will check out that site though. never know, might find something I must have. Thanks Dude!
