Your right Bubba they are nice at 2 1/2 times the price. How can an all stainless thermometer be anodized aluminum?

Far as the great gauge debate, I know the Wally World gauges get a lot of abuse here, but they are cheap and they have worked for me. Reading one is no problem. I put a mark on it at 250 with red marker. I can see that from inside my house with a pair of binoculars. I am not saying a gauge that costs nearly $50 with the shipping isn't somehow better, I am just saying these work for me at $15 plus sales tax.

To possibly clear up confusion I paid $63 for 4 gauges which included shipping $15.75 each, and you can recalibrate them. Bubba is right Tele Tru are very nice gauges that you can trust. If it was a more expensive smoker then it would be worth spending the extra cash.

I've read a good deal of this thread but have not gotten the specific answers i am looking for so forgive me if i am repeating -

instead of building a coal basket i took a smokey joe knock off (Thermos) and cuty the legs down to 2 inch and drilled a bunch of holes in the bottom. i put an eye ring in the center so i can retrieve it with a fireplace poker.

also, i bought a 1" ball valve that i am going to attach with a steel flange for my air control. i alos drilled two 1/4" holes on the sides of the drum 2" off the ground.

anybody see any problems with either of these 2 modifications?

I'll get some pics up later tonight..

I must have missed something because I can't figure out what the 1/4" holes are for?
