    Very nice work. Always nice to have helpers.

    Also I like the idea of the cork on the thermometer. From the lack of smoke on the cork looks like a first time use.

    I read about the cork from someone on here. I decided to try it out. I normally use a half of a lime or lemon and that seems to work ok.

    The little guy is at the busy age, fun but keeps you on your toes, a man on a mission!![​IMG]

    Lookin like a great start! I have been tempted to add a propane Smoke Vault to the arsenal. Also I like your no foil idea. I am starting to want to try to experiment without using foil. Make sure you keep us posted! [​IMG]
