I searched and didn’t find a general “what did you get for Christmas” thread (if there is a mod can delete or move).
I thought of starting this catch all thread where folks can share what they received as a Christmas and/or holiday gift pertaining to grilling/smoking/BBQ/cooking etc.
I know several folks have posted some great reviews, here is mine.
Product was sealed with no damage or issues with outer box.
Product is securely packaged in the box with foam fitted cutouts.
Contents of package include the thermometer, charging cable, calibration instruction card.
Finally got around to using my new Inkbird IBT-6XS.
Very easy to charge, update and pair with phone.
Tested the probes and all were between 211-212 for boiling water.

Well I made a very rookie mistake. My last smoke I make spare ribs and pork loin.
Everything turned out great, family really enjoyed it.

On the other loin I made up a simple...

Turned out ok. Nice bark, good flavor, juicy, passed pull test. Family enjoyed it.
Did learn several things.
Need to work on trimming skills. Some areas too much removed, some not enough.
Was about 11 lbs after trimming. Seasoning was just salt and pepper...
I need to acquire some good cutting boards. Leaning towards the Epicurean brand of cutting boards.
A search shows discussions about them from 6-7 years ago. Those that have had them since then, how are they holding up?
I need to get at least 1 large (20” x 15”) for slicing...
Just letting folks know that Thermoworks is having a sale of 15% off everything (excluding those items already on sale).
I can’t find when it ends now, but thought I read it goes until the 20th.
Not affiliated with them, but did I take advantage of the sale and placed an order.
