        Welcome from Western Massachusetts. And yes, digital thermometer is a must. We all have a few.

          You definitely need digital thermometers. My OJ Bronco is off anywhere from 25*-50*. Most cookers’ factory thermometers are way off and most of them aren’t even at grate level, which is where you want to know the temps anyway.

              Yep, they are purely decorative, can't tell you the last time I even looked at mine.
              A good digital thermometer will change your BBQ world, that and a log of your cooks as you go.

                Indeed. Check out this article, in particular the yellow-highlighted paragraph under the What you need to know about thermometers heading: https://amazingribs.com/ratings-revi...mometers-work/
