I definitely need to get a thermometer on the mini so I can accurately know temps. I thought it was a pleasure to cook on besides the temp issue which was not the mini's fault at all. I'll get it all figured out. The guys I work with already asked if I was bringing it with me next week. So that has to be a good sign right?
 
I use a mav. I heard river country makes a good dial gauge.
 
For chicken a therm isn't really needed just run that thing hot! You'll get a great crispy skin and good smokey chicken.

Better get ya a steak or two so you can do some reverse searing.

I think the mini will be my go to smoker for small everyday cooks that is for sure. It performed very good. I was actually eye balling steaks but wanted to try something cheaper for the first run. It may be steaks on the next go. There will be pics of that I'm sure.
 
The mini is a great everyday smoker. Do you have 2 cooking grates?
 
I like 2 grates. I think you seen my steak and taters thread?

It's my go to, so damn easy to get set up, and efficient! Not to mention you can smoke, pull the pot off and then sear, either on the grate or go caveman style right on the coals!

Course all that said I'd like to see some smoke and grub off your big rig!
