So I saved up my penny's for awhile and bought me a Rec Tec 680 pellet smoker. Never smoked before except cigars. I love bbqing I just smoked a Tri tip my very first piece of meat smoked and I am happy with the way it came out. I will definitely invest in a wireless thermometer and digital quick thermometer. I used an old school prove that takes some time to read what the IT is.
