Long time listener, first time caller

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Alright...not the first, first time. I've been around the forum for a few months now and have been remiss in introducing myself.

Uh...let's see. I live in Kentucky, have a GOSM, I'm a novice smoker (been at it only since November but love it), I'm a Leo and like lounge music and short walks on the beach.

But seriously...having played around for a while with my new favorite toy, I've realized that there are some things I definitely need - particularly one or two reliable thermometers and some other ancillary gear.

Any advice on what equipment is essential, what kind of equipment you use and how you like it would be appreciated.

Welcome to SMF glad you decided to join in. You need a couple thermometers or at least one with dual probes. Many here recommend the Maverick ET 73.
Needs
Thermometers
Spare propane tank because one always run out in the middle of a smoke
Welding Gloves are great to move hot things
Spray Bottle for spritzing
Aluminum Foil Pans
Meat trays
Spatulas, Tongs, Forks all with long handles

Nice to have but not required
Extra Smoke Box during long smokes just swap boxes
Rib racks
Chicken and Turkey stand

I'm sure I've overlooked stuff but others will catch them I'm sure

Thanks for the greetings and kind words. My personal description was a (feeble) attempt at being funny. Although, if you're a hot chick, I meant every word of it.

I live in Frankfort - the Capital City. Woohoo. Nuttin' to do around here but smoke meat and drink beer.

Howdy Papa! Welcome to SMF. From the title of your post I'm guessing your a fan of the "Mr. Obvious" bit on the Bob & Tom radio show.
