    I don't have a gas side burner so I place about a handful of coal in the chimney to get them going. I place them on the first coals of the snake w/wood on top of those in two separate areas for the early cook. I heat the grill for a bout 10 minutes after that before placing the meat on. I do use a water pan and have tried hot water to start things off with a bit more steam vs. just cold water. Right now, I'm only relying on the grills gauge which I know isn't sufficient and I'm going to get an external one soon. I use our meat thermometer to gauge the target heat I'm looking for. I try to keep the top vent at least 3/4 shut if not more to keep the smoke from escaping. The bottom dampers is where I adjust the heat. I check on my temp every 15 minutes or so and leave the lid closed as much as possible.

    Yeah, I thought of that since I do our steaks with hers going on about 5 minutes before I put mine on. I'm not a fan of cutting up a nice hunk of tri prior to grilling for some reason. But I'll probably give it a whirl one of these days.

    I would definitely get a new therm before trying anything else

    So thanks to this thread, and a few other people prodding me along, what do you guys think about this smoker?

    Amazon.com : Landmann USA 3895GWLA Smoky Mountain Vertical Gas Smoker, 38-Inch : Patio, Lawn & Garden

    I was looking at a BGE XL this weekend, but by the time I get everything I would want with it, it would be close to $2000, which seems like alot to spend on a BBQ. Any thoughts?
    And thats how you get ants!

    It would be the last barbecue you'll ever buy.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Just a Weber 22" kettle. No bells or whistles.

    The better long-term solution is to train the wife properly. My wife used to like well-done. I showed her the error of her ways and she's a medium rare girl now.

    I wish. After 15 years, my wife (And mother) require me to pretty much burn everything so that they aren't grossed out.

    I still prefer my meat mooing.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
