    Hello from Maine

    Started reading this site after retirement got me thinking about learning how to up my pathetic grilling skills. Got put on hold for several years due to busy moving to Maine, now is finally time to get serious. Replaced tired rusty left-behind with red Weber 22, but never satisfied with chicken or burgers. Joined a month ago and read everything about smokers thinking that was what we needed next. However, a bunch of you convinced me to start with a slow n sear, which is scheduled for delivery today. Should help with chicken and looking forward to smoking ribs,etc.
    Thanks for the science of cooking approach, which makes more sense to me, and to a community of comical yet serious users that seem willing to help everyone. Now about that Thermoworks Smoke dual port thermometer and Drip n Griddle.

        Welcome to The Pit Pete. The Drip N Griddle is very nice. It directs the intake air through the SnS. It can also be used as a drip pan and a griddle. However, if ya want crispy skin chicken, I suggest getting a Vortex. It is a chicken cookin' machine. One caveat though - it's better at cooking pieces than whole chickens.
        Of course, if ya can afford both - that's the way to go.

              Thanks everyone.

              Parkin is in serious need.

              BobR thanks for the Vortex suggestion and warning. They are both future needs till I become proficent at smoking and grilling with the SnS, never got past burgers and chickens. I'm really hoping for results like I see in everyones pics, with time.

                    Fireman - Parkin is the name given for the second responder, sorry! I have to run a few trials for calibration, then make my 1st rub, then the hard part: finding baby back ribs is a challenge in Maine, as they seem partial to St. Louis style. I'm guessing calibration pics won't cut it even with beer included.
