Pote05....

 

I'm new here but my plans are to get the A-Maze-N smoker and do some cheese and bacon. But you can have a lot of fun and enjoyment just using it as is.....Did you look up FATTY ....this is something I am ready to try.

I recommend a fast read instant thermometer, Thermoworks has some great ones on sale for $19, or you can get a probe and handheld reader for a really good price too, or if someone loves you a whole lot, you can spring for a thermopen.  It can be really good to have a back-up for verification on your temps at times. you're going to get a LOT of advice on this question! Cheers!

Decent food grade buckets to hold things like pork shoulders or ribs while you brine them.  I use very large tupperware, and put them in a spare fridge overnight.

 

A-Maze-N smoker -- best way to do cold smoke (only way IMO).

 

Vacumn sealer (we have a food saver brand).  Get lots of bags and rolls at BJs, Costco or the like.  Much better buy than at Walmart or supermarket.

 

A good scale.

 

Nice pair of tongs and mitts.

 

As someone else said, some sort of instant read or probe thermometer.

as Dale mentioned, a spare fridge!
