    Digital thermometers

    I'm sure by now you've purchased a thermometer but I've been very happy with Maverick thermometers.  I own the redi-chek et-73 and love it.  Used it tons.  Check it out online, I got mine on Amazon.  Happy smoken!

    Thermometer recommendation

    The maverick is a great setup.  Check amazon for deals on them.  I love mine but you'll want to calibrate every so often.

    My first Fattie - Chicken Cordon Bleu fattie

    Now that looks awesome!  I've never tried a CCB fatty before though.  Great idea for my next smoke.  IMO you might want to get a 1.5"x1.5" wooden block to put your probes into instead of using the one that attaches to the grill grate.  Heard they can throw off your CC temp.  Just an idea.

    First time 3-2-1 method

    I'm still working on them also.  Fine line between tough to mush.  But like Grillmonkey I'll get them perfect eventually.

    To Inject or Not to Inject???

    I've injected briskets with beef broth.  Injected turkeys and chickens with seasoned melted butter.  Going to do a couple game hens and try injecting them with buffalo sauce.  So far everyone has enjoyed what I've done unless they're pulling my leg.  I always smoke around 225*-250*

    What would you do?

    I've never soaked just wrap in tin foil.  I get a heavy smoke but I don't use wood through out the smoke.  I use lump charcoal with some competition kingsford for the entire smoke.  Also have never used a water pan since I don't use a vertical smoker just a side fire box.  Keep asking and they...

    Brisket w/ Q-View... Came out dry? What did I do wrong?

    I just smoked my first brisket last week and had the stall in the 140*.  I injected it before hand with beef broth and also wrapped it.  It was 11lbs and took nearly 13 hrs.  One thing that might help if you have a dry brisket is to slice it and put in a slow cooker with beef broth for a while. ...
