Howdy from Toronto. May I suggest a trial run before the big 50th. Also up here, lots of folks swear by the hand held Thermapen. Not cheap , but lots of kudos.

Cheers
Cramden

Welcome to the forum, Fryar!! Everyone here is happy to help out with any questions you might have.

I used to use an ET-73 all the time...but then I bought my Thermapen and found no need to use it anymore. I just dropped a dial therm in the dome of my WSM and educationally guess when I should check the meat (butts and briskets) and it has worked for me...I'm sure over time you will learn the que as well and be able to do that!!

Good luck and welcome!!

Hey Tuck welcome. I favor the six buck instant and easy to read gauge from Wally World. Them new fangled gizmos are treacherous.

Welcome aboard Fryer. And welcome to your new addiction! It can be costly, but you'll eat great!

I use a Nu-Temp NU-701 and NU-751 remote thermo that allows me to be inside and see what temps the smoker and meat are at. This type allows three sensors to report back to one main unit. It's great for those cold winter smokes! I also have a Thermopen that I use for everything I cook. It's nice to be able to check the internal temp within seconds. Worth the money.

Have fun learning how to cook everything to your liking. Good luck on the brisket cook.

Fryar, the math question should be the third item listed (or there abouts) in the profile page...it prevents SPAMBOTS from attacking the forum!
