My name is Dave and I just got started with smoking and barbequeing a year ago. My family got me the char-griller duo with the sfb for my 50th last year. What a great gift. This year I made modifications to it based on posts to this website and after reading your guide to thermometers I got myself the Maverick with dual probes and I got the Thermoworks instant read thermometer on sale! Used both to cook a 12 lb tri tip roast and some pork chops and the mods to my char griller worked great.
