Concertina wire, while prepping the turn in boxes.

That would keep the moochers at a distance, while im cutting ribs, chicken or brisket for the .........presentation.

Ive got a wireless thermo, its nice but its not necessary. Ive got 2 probes that I feed down the chimney: 1 is to verify the dial thermo on the door, the other goes in the smaller butt. Once the smaller butt strikes its temp, I put the probe in the bigger butt. Once I'm convinced the dial thermo on the door is accurate, I put the probe in the brisket.



I also carry a quick read thermo in my pocket to do a spot check on things like fatties, and to check the butts in different places while the door is open.

OOOO, BBQ dreams time.

Lets see.

I want a custom offset from Peoria
http://www.peoriacustomcookers.com/new/home.html

My BBQ partner will want either a FEC, Spicewine or Stumps cooker.
http://www.smokymountainsmokers.com/fec_series_web.pdf
http://spicewineironworks.com/index.php?p=smoker
http://stumpssmokers.com/

I'll need a nice 3/4 ton to pull the trailer, I'm lusting over Ford F250 King's Ranch edditions right now
http://www.fordvehicles.com/trucks/superduty/?v=html



I cook with a combo of Hickory, Oak and Cherry wood.
My partner is fond of the Kingsford with fruit wood for flavor.
No links for wood, but www.kingsford.com/

A good thermometer is a must have and we use Maverick ET 73s:
http://www.amazon.com/Maverick-ET-73...3073273&sr=8-1

You can find them cheaper but that is the only link I have.

Since we are dreaming here lets step up to a BBQ Guru:
www.thebbqguru.com/

Good knives really are worth their weight in gold. I like Wusthof
http://www.amazon.com/W%C3%BCsthof-C...3073529&sr=8-8

You'll need to keep things cold. For a classic look I love Coleman's 54quart red steel cooler:
http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-54-Qua...3073656&sr=1-6

For comps and serious jobs try this out:150qt marine cooler
http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-150-Qu...073656&sr=1-10

Vaccum sealers are a great tool. I've had good luck with the foodsaver brand:
http://www.amazon.com/Food-Saver-T00...3074098&sr=1-2


Hope that helps, we can talk about more specifics if you want. Just let us know.

A hot looking Red Thermapen would be my tool. Maybe a 12 pack also to make sure the cook gets marinated correctly.
