    Attjack About how long did the cook take? You mentioned cooking at 250 and then upping it to 300 to finish.

      Between 2 and 3 hours. If you want a shorter cook just up the temperature. If you have time and want it in the smoker for longer lower the temp as low as 225F.

    The best part about these is you can pretty much stuff them with whatever you want. They are so forgiving and so good. I love your touch on the kraut and brats. What a great way to use up leftovers! Thanks for sharing.

      those pictures are amazing! I want to do that, but my wife only likes bacon that's extra extra crispy so I'm limited I wonder if one could do that with prosciutto since she will eat that not rock hard.

        To be clear I'm talking about the bacons underside, not the underside of the fatty. Wife likes bacon that shatters lol.

        Attjack ok figured it out, good enough for the wife anyway. Did a very small weave test on a "meatball" burger. So the 6 bacon strip weave went on a rack in the oven at 250 for 15 minutes, let it cool then wrapped the "meatball". I might need to play with the precook temp or time for a longer cooked item like a fatty, but the burger thing smoked for 1.5 hours before being done and the bacon was crispy enough for the wife

        Nice! I just opened a big pack of bacon and was thinking I'll have to figure out how to use it. So maybe I'll give it a shot.

            Looks awesome. Hopefully soon I will get around to smoking a fatty like this. I have always wanted to try a breakfast fatty with bacon, breakfast sausage, potatoes, etc.

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
