IMHO the clock and the temp probe have their place in the process, but only as indicators or reminders of when to do other things. I like to know when my butts hit a certain temp so I can probe them. I can stick a remote probe in when I put them in the drum and I don't have to open it up and get a temp swing just to check it. Overall though it ain't about time or temp, its all about feel.
How y'all are? I'm glad you got to see me I guarontee Justin Wilson 4/24/1914 - 09/05/2001
