Hello from Kentucky!

  1. New member here, glad I stumbled upon the forums through a quick web search. I received a char-griller smokin' pro for my birthday. Assembled it yesterday and smoked a rack of spare ribs amd half rack of country ribs using the 3-2-1 method. They both had great smoke flavor, but the country ribs were a little dry.

    I haven't used charcoal in years and had never used a side fire box. It also rained the last three hours of my cook, so all in all I am happy. Though I have a lot to learn, which is why I am here. I came to the conclusion that I need a good wireless thermometer, preferably with more than one probe. Any recommendations for that?

  3. Thanks for the quick response, updated my profile and did a quick search on thermometers. Sounds like the maverick is great, I was also curious about the oregon scientific brand, though after the search maverick seems to be the go to brand here. I helieve my hood thermometer on the grill is off by 50+ degrees, at the actual grate, so that may explain the country ribs being a little dryer than i like.
