Salivating, you got fourteen bones with the spare rib on the left? Where did you buy it? And is that back-rib on the right? Family always complains about the narly bit on the very right due to the shrinkage and overcookness. Good job though with the WSM, how long was the whole process? Any advice on how to achieve what you clearly accomplished?

Ya they were back ribs sand I got these at Costco... and I used 3-2-1... 3 hours smoke, 2 hours wrapped, sauce and 1 more hour in the smoker. They were perfectly tender with good bite... they were not "fall of the bone" tender but pull off the bone clean when you bite into them lol

This is an example of a perfectly cooked rib. If it's falling off the bone, it's overcooked.

Found a good deal on a boneless pork shoulder, skin on. Was initially rolled up but unrolled it and roasted over charcoal. Think it was on for about 3-3.5 hours

What kind of thermometers does everyone recommend? I'm not interested in anything bluetooth or wireless. Do you need to spend $100 or would something like like this do the trick?

To keep the images going, here's some ribs I pre-smoked last night (going to finish them with sauce on the grill tomorrow). And a sirloin top roast I smoked last weekend.

That thermometer should be fine. I would still test it every once in a while (depending on use) in boiling water/ice to see accuracy.
I got this one https://www.amazon.ca/iDevices-IGR0009P ... ds=igrill2, as a Father's Day present that I bought...I wanted the bluetooth and the 3 meat/1 ambient probe. I tend to do yard work (and sitting for beers) etc after I start up the Boss so I wanted the wireless.

Get yourself a instant read thermometer as well, something like a themopop... Good for steaks.

Please make note that

Probe and Wire can withstand up to 716°F (380°C),and cann't be exposed to open flame


380F ! I didn't realize this until I went thru two progress. IMO this limits the leave in place probe usefulness.
It says in the text you quoted 380F not 380C. It says the limit is 716F!

Oops. My mistake. The Polder probes are around that temp I quoted. This one quoted 380C. Can't believe it can stand that much heat since the max temp range is 572F. Why 572F when the probe goes to over 700F. I have my doubts it can handle over 700F.

Any particular reason you don't want wireless? I personally find having wireless a very nice convenience. If you don't need wireless though that one looks fine.

How do you find the range on that one? I like the idea of a bluetooth thermometer that I can connect to my phone, but worried about having it still work when I am inside the home. I assume you need to keep almost line of sight with the thermometer?

The range is pretty good. Complete contact inside the house and can go from my backyard to the front of the garage before I don't have a connection (probably about 100 feet or more)

I'm not a fan of Bluetooth as my iPhone 6 doesn't seem to have the best connection, however, I had a grilling mishap the other day and now I'm thinking of getting a wireless unit. For whatever reason, the temp on my pellet smoker shot up to 320F and toasted the bottom of my ribs. No idea how long it was at that temp, but I had been checking it every 20-30 mins.

So now I'm looking at this unit which seems to get decent reviews. Having a dedicated remote might be better than relying on my phones weak BT connection.

Thanks for the replies all!
