    High temp gloves for searing (you probably noticed this on your first high temp cook if you didn't already have them :ohmy: )

    External temp thermometer for lo & slo cooks. I just ordered a Maverick ET73, borrowed a neighbors thermometer for my first butt.
  • I do not have an XL but if I did I would get the stuff Tom offers. Check out his site.

    Lump reducers would be a must for me.

    Oh if you do not have a cover, I would suggest you get one, but that is my opinion, others may disagree.
