  1. I am  brand new to smoking I have a Brinkman red one to start with I just got new lava rocks a Maverick ET-7 and a couple of baby back ribs I am going to get your recipes today. I would like to know where to install the probes for the thermometers. Should I drill a hole in the side or what? Any info will be greatly appreciated Thanks

    Welcome to the forum! What is that , a propane smoker? I installed a grommet in my smoker that lets me pass the wire for the meat therm to pass thru. Is that what you're asking?

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet a few neighbors! 

    Your smoker will not have a "hole" to put the probe into....but the lid doesnt fit tight....so I would put the "non-food" one just inside and let it hang on one of the grates...(will have a holder for the probe in the kit for the therm) and that should work to show you what the temp is inside.  Wont need the "food" part for ribs.

    You might want to check out Jeff's Free 5 day E-Course, it has great information to use no matter your skill level!

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

    Welcome to the forums!  This is the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc.  So many friendly and knowledgeable folks who really enjoy helping one another.  Just holler when you need anything, and someone here will have the answer.  I don't know your particular smoker, but if you post your question in the smokers forums (propane, charcoal, etc., whichever is appropriate), someone who knows your rig can help you with mods.

    I would just drill a small hole, just big enough for the probe to fit through, right above grate level and pass it in there.
