Hey Pros:

Where do I find the following? I don't want to go cheap, but I don't have disposable income just to buy top of the line:

Grill/Smoker thermometer - I saw the heat temp inspector at the Tooele Heritage days use a digital laser type. Will an oven thermometer work?

Marinade Injector.

Apple, Hickory, Mesquite Wood chips.

Thank you in advance for your help!!!

The "Real Boss" behind WTF Marinade
WalMart oven shelf thermometer about $5.00 will do the job, but they do color up from being in the smoke and they get hard to read.

If you have somewhere to balance the stem of a longer thermometer, you can buy the Turkey Fryer therm, under $10.00 with a 12" stem, I've used a load of these on Ugly Drum Smokers and they do work well.

If you want to move up a little you can get either a Maverick e73 or the newer e732 with two probes, and go digital.

If you look at ebay, or at teltru.com and look for BBQ thermometers, go with something 2 or 2.5" in diameter and with a stem 3 or 4 or 6", don't go much shorter than the 3" stem, as most of it will be in the wall or the lid and you won't get as accurate a reading close to the wall.

What sort of budget do you have?

I recommend this injector. Price is good and the plastic holds up.

Smith's sells the same injector, but it's black, not as much and no shipping. I have bought the Cajun one until I ran on to this one.
