    1st smoke went pretty good. Factory temp gauge was about 30 degrees off, though. Had an oven thermometer from a while back I used, but I need a good accurate thermometer. Any suggestions? Ribs turned out tender, the beef and the pig. Fatties were immediately consumed so I guess that passed the test. Smoked sausage was also pretty tasty. Sorry. No q view this time. Camera batteries were dead. Hey, I can't think of everything. There is room for improvement, but I don't think that'll be a problem as I learn the smoker better.

    Your more amitious than I am on a first smoke. I have a spatched yard bird due to be out in another hour on my first "hot" smoke in the GOSM.

    Everything I have read say's you want to buy a Maverick ET-73 Thermomenter. about 39 bucks and shipping is the best I could find it for.

    Glad everything turned out for you.
    No worries on no Qview, I just closed my eyes and imagined pulling a nice fattie off the smoker and the smiles on all of your family/guests faces when they tasted it.
    Next time charge up some batteries for the camera cause the only thing better than a Qview is being there in person, till smell and taste-o-vision.
