I hear ya. It does look way better, but I've never thought the double bacon layer weave cooks quite right (it's better when you buy the super thin see-through bacon, but I NEVER buy that). The single layer works just fine for us.

I think I'm flattered (and a little worried I must say...) Any of the above woods will work fine, especially with the deer sausage. I run them between 225-250F for about an hour and a half (until the internal temp is 165F). I wish I could claim credit for the idea, but I picked up the trick on a meat smoking website years ago.

The fatty is also called the "Bacon Explosion" if I remember correctly. I usually do one for Christmas and another for New Years.

Is it called that because it is a heart bomb? So I waffled on this for a bit due to the arctic temps we are enduring these past few days. I just turned the deer sausage into biscuits and gravy with a potato pepper hash. Now I am thinking I am going to defrost another sausage (turkey this time?) and then wrap the biscuits, gravy and hash with some cheddar! Oh dear god, "HEART DON"T FAIL ME NOW!!!!!!!"l

I would highly recommend it. But only in moderation. It's great sliced in toast with some melted cheddar!

The weather folks are predicting snow down to 1000' tomorrow night and I have no idea how well my smoker would hold up in that. It is already in the 20's at 11pm so my ambition to be out in the cold right now is pretty low. Might just knock out some snow beer tomorrow night. Something holiday like and spicy. Maybe smoke a fatty on sunday.

Doing brisket this weekend. I had to choose between select packet from smart & final vs choice untrimmed cryo flats from Costco. I chose the flats. I bought two that were nice and bendy, about 6.5 lbs each.

I've never done just a flat. Current plan is to only *lightly* trim, inject, rub, and smoke fat side down. Then to foil at 160 to ensure I retain moisture.

Thoughts?

anytime I smoke the flats I place them in a shallow foil pan with a very shallow amount of beef stock in it for about half the cook time. oh and mop, mop, mop.
