the guage in my smoker is the one that came with it and doesnt read worth a crap it is off by more than alittle so I kinda wing it but have been doing it for a number of years now with out one now and kinda know by the way it is going when to add more or back it off a bit I believe it was around 180 - 200 for the most part of the smoke mopped it every hour and when the temp hit a buck 80 in the bird i let it bark up a bit more while i cut up the two chickens i did today to and then removed it from the smoker It was in the smoker for about 7-8 Hrs hung close to the fire box wanted to hurry it up a bit without burnin it up so had to emprovise with a bit of foil to make sure no flames got close makin a make shift fire wall of sortes but it has plenty of juices flowin from the portion i cut open hope everybody likes it tomorrow. But I really hope to buy a few good guages to use in a couple different smokers so i can keep a better eye on things.

Once she got it out of the oven it was very tender and juicy done to perfection but I am going to get a new guage for temp and i took ya'lls advice and ordered three digital probes thanks for all the help.
