Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I am brand new to smoking and brand new to the forum. Any tips or suggestions are welcome, I have been reading a lot over the last several days and have found this site to be full of information.
I have a Brinkman Trailmaster LE that I just got last weekend as an early birthday present. I have not done any mods to it yet but will over time. I had planned to add 2 thermos to the grill, however, the store only had one when I went. What side of the grill lid would you suggest mounting the thermo on to begin with? I will eventually get a second one to put on the other side. I will also get a few digital ones to use on the meat and in the cooking chamber until I get a second one.
I am from central Texas and plan on doing my first smoke this weekend. I plan on doing a pork shoulder and a chicken. Since I have a ton of mesquite on my property, I plan on starting with that to see how it does. I will also use oak eventually since I have quite a bit of it but it isn't seasoned yet.
