DLT,

The rack thing.  If I only use the two center racks I leave them alone.  I usually put things like veggies and thinner cuts of meat at the top thicker ones on the bottom.  I do beleive the lower rack may get a bit warmer.  I personally smoke at 200 as rule of thumb.

The thermometer:  I do not use a wireless. It does have wire that I run through the vent. I think many of the same folks on the forum do the same.  I bought mine for 16.95 at BED & BATH (if you have that chain in your area).  Look closely they have two types that look almost the same, the other is 23.95.

But if play with the racks, you have to open the door.  Again I hate to do that.

Have a great day...

It's not how much you smoke but how many friends you make while doing it...

Jack:
ThanX for tip on northerntool.com! Lots of great cooking stuff! One of the better priced "Binford 5000 flamethrowers" (HO propane burner for blackened meats) I've seen.

On your Maverick probe, you say 100 yds and the ad says 100ft....typo?, or does it actually reach the 100 yd range?? If so, that'd be great for me since I do a lot of exterior work away from the BS while smoking.......

My apologies K Man,It's suppose to be 100ft. not yards.

DLT,

To add to MW's post: If you plan your layout, rack rotation is not neccessary. Don't put pork butts on the top shelf & chicken breasts on the bottom one. Yes, the back heats a little more than the front & the bottom heats a little more than the top. A little experience & a dash of common sense, you'll have if figured out in no time.

When I'm cooking 4 racks of the same product, I do like to do a flip & rotate. But I only do it once, about half way through cooking, the same time I'm checking on them visually for the only time during cooking. I know I preach that opening the door is bad, but I feel the need to do it once, AND ONLY ONCE!

Smoke on,

Hate to rub it in guys, but there is a value in service. Jeff, I'm guessing you too will get our stuff before your smoker. Hang in there, once you get it, you'll be in heaven.[:)]

Kirk, Got your stuff.Waiting on my Smoke Machine (is that better than BS?)[:p][;)][:(]

Well, to take your mind off the wait, here's what I suggest. Put the dining table extension in and place 10 wood bisquettes at one end, arranged in a triangular pattern. Go to the other end and slide the Bubba Pucks across the table & see how many bisquettes you can knock off. Kind of a shuffleboard/bowling cross-game.[:D]

Kirk

ps, I'd clear it with the mrs before messing with her table![;)]
