Just bought a used WSM 18.5 inch for 220. Its about a year old and have heard good things about it. I have been grilling for years kind of by feel and not by temp. I have made some killer chicken breast and steaks over the years. and want to branch into smoking. I have also been brewing beer for the last 15 years, so i know the importance of temp in smoking. I plan to get a digital remote thermometer. I just have two questions to start out with.
What digital remote thermometer would you all recommend to start with reasonably priced?
What meat should i start with. i was thinking pork butt or spatchcock chicken. Further, whats the difference in chickens and what should i look for?
I will be banging through threads for these answers, but i just thought if anyone had the quick and dirty, post it here.
