Hey Meowey keep the old recliner...It would be a great thing to set in and have a cold one while watching the smoker outside....My gifts were all in the clothing line so I bought myself two new fairway woods today....now the old ones might be adaptable somehow to smoker tending....maybe use the shafts for straws from the keg to the chair? LOL....got an extra if ya want it!!
I have a bunch of golf shafts around here. I used to build my own clubs. Will have to ponder some smoking related usage. Right now they get used to tie up some of the large plants in the flower beds.
BTW - The old recliner would be an eyesore in the yard. I think it's going to a far, far better place. I have a great canvas folding chair that I watch the smoker from. It has drink holders built in to the arms. (Holds the pre-vaporized bourbon)
way ahead of me on thermometers,I hope the accurites do better for you than mine.It died after 2 smokes and I called them and they wont have replacement probes till mid january.I am gonna order the maverick today.
