    Eddie Welcome to SMF from the freezing east LOL the search bar is a very good tool. For your smoker check the MES Group page.

    I recommend getting a Maverick, or any other type of probe to monitor the CC Temp. You may also want to check on an AMNPS for cold smoking in the 80* F LOL.

    i second tropic's advice.

    my maverick tells me my mes is always 15 degrees higher than what  it reads.

     good to know.

    i've never used the hopper with chips so i don't know how good that works. i use the maze with pellets on the  advice of these folks'

    i'm happy with that for both hot n cold smokes.

    Either way, a GREAT thermometer makes a significant difference. I realize the Maverick ET-732/733 are the stAndards for cook chamber remote measurement. I have one but was not overly impressed initially but.... It has helped me turn out some incredible q. Then a few people I know tried the iGrill2.

    Yikes! This unit has caught my eye and I bought one for my son and mine is now on order as well. So far it gets a big thumbs up. For what it's worth. It is rather accurate in boiling water. 212 on the nose
