    I was smoking about 45lbs of pulled pork for a big Christmas lunch with my co-workers last week and after about 4 hours I realized my temps where NOT anywhere near where they should be! After going over my smoker and gear I realized my remote temp reading device was not working correctly. The gauge on the front of my smoker is far from accurate so I did not trust it either. I started looking around locally (I am in Arlington Washington) trying to find a place that had any tempeture measuring devices in stock and I had no luck. I called a few friends who have smokers to see if they knew of anyplace that I could find stuff in stock and still no luck. I looked online and found tons of places to buy but nobody had any in stock just mail order or online.

    So after exhausting my options I was just going to check the pork using my wifes meat thermometer  and guess on the smoker temp. I decided to give Dave a call and see if he had any ideas. Dave lives about 40 minutes North of me but at this point if he had a place I could buy from I would make the drive. Dave and I talked and told him my problem. He said he did not have any local supply but that he could help me! Dave loaded up his truck with an ample supply of gear and drove to my house to deliver me a set of Maverick temp gauges!!! He pulled out his digital temp gauge and checked my pork temps and then grabed his lazer temp reader and checked my smoker and meat surface temps and left me with a set of gauges to borrow!!! I cant tell you how much I appreciate Dave going out of his way to help me and save me from ruining a lot of pork! He told me to go to A-MAZE-N-SMOKER and buy new Maverick stuff from them which I did along with a set of Bear Paws and a set of Meat Rakes! Now I just need one of those cool digital meat thermometers from Maverick and I will be set.

    THANK YOU NWDave!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your the man!!!!!! [​IMG]  to you!!!

    We'll be getting a new Cabella's in Tulalip soon. Hopefully that situation will never happen again, NWBHoss.

    It was my pleasure to help Mark (Hoss).  He's helped so many others, it was nice to be able to return the favor with something I could do.  Anybody who says you can't produce a lot of meat haven't seen Hoss'es little tiny smoker.  Now he's on the path to the right equipment and I think he's finally going to get off the pot and finish his big smoker.

    A Cabella's near Tulalip?  Finally.  I'm definitely going to have to make some more road trips that way now.

     No big rush on the return, I have backups (no big surprise there).  I'm sure there is a mini or maxi Bomb Party in our very near future.  Todd is a great guy to deal with.
