[quote=Radical Rick;920312]the 12 inch thermo mod is a great sounding mod, but I would also recommend a temp gage so you'll know what temp your cooking your meat. there is a difference when cooking a butt to say 190 using a 200 degree heat vs 190 using a 300 degree heat. If I am wrong please say so!
You kind of lost me on that one... the 12 inch thermo is used as a temp gauge to monitor cooking temps (i.e. how hot the fire is) A thermo on the meat seems to be a matter or preference as 190 on one butt will not necessarlly yield identical results from butt to butt
