6.1.1 Pros and cons of thermometers


[Do I really need a thermometer? An old-timer told me not to bother with one.]

The old-timers on the List don't use thermometers and say they are not needed. Beginners seem to want and need them. Seems that once you're an old-hand at barbecue, then you can tell the temperature by the color of the smoke, the smell of the smoker or by some extra-sensory thing. But until you get to that point, a thermometer somewhere in the smoker is an absolute necessity.
