    Do blower fans really make that much of a difference?

    Lately on /r/smoking (Reddit) I have seen a ton of comments about how using a WSM with a blower is a game changer and really allows people to not worry about temp changes. But once I get my temp dialed in without a fan I hardly ever see changes throughout the cook. How do these fans work...

    If You Could Grill Anywhere............?

    My deck. I built it with my dad the year after I bought my house during covid. No better feeling than firing up the smoker on something you built yourself. Although I did love grilling fish for tacos in the outdoor kitchen at a beach house we rented one summer.

    Pork Butt Fat Cap or No Cap?

    Favorite dual probe wireless thermometer for WSM?

    How do the square dots compare to other highly rated dual probe thermometers? I wish they had a wireless receiver to go with it. Edit: Nevermind.. Just saw they have the Smoke X2.

    2005 Genesis Silver how to find a new home

    If you kick it to the curb I'm sure a scrapper will pick it up before anyone that would get some actual use out of it. At least in my area it wouldn't last an hour before the scrap collector came.
