Ok sorry. Yes I do have some "stuff" basics really. I have a kingsford grill/smoker. and currently working on a couple UDSs. Getting more involved with true bbq and smoking since finding this site and learning from you guys. That being said,

I like the thermapen and pitmasterIQ.

Buying a chord of good smoking wood is high on the list to, BubbyQue.

aawa, any advice on knife sets?

I have the Victornix Fibrox knives. I pieced it together starting with the 8" chef, 6" stiff boning knife, and paring knife.




Those 3 knives will run you about $70. Add in the steel for another $20.


Another good knife set for the money is one that Bludawg linked in a previous thread. It is $120 but you get 7 pieces w/ a carrying case. Then get a chef knife or santoku later and you have a great knife set.

A reliable meat thermometer is a gamechanger. A thermapen is a luxury, which is why its best as a gift! But the thermoworks rt600c ($25 om Amazon) is very good, accurate and reliable. Beats most other thermometers.

I love my Thermapens, but like said above, they are luxuries and will eat up much of that $100. I would ask for the Simply Marvelous Rub sample pack in a heartbeat. So,e of the best rubs on the market. I'd also ask for meat gloves and some Bear Claws/Bear Paws. Also, a food saver vacuum system will save ya money in the long run. Whatever you ask for...whatever you get...I pray you have a blessed Christmas.

A Thermapen or the new 14.5 WSM would be a great Xmas gift. I have 5 Thermapens already so I'm asking for one of the new 14.5 WSM. :)
