Welcome to the party! If you've read much on this forum, you've heard to cook to temp and not time. So yes, you will need a good themometer and the thermapen is one of the best. I'd also suggest a temp probe like the Maverick ET732 or 733. It's very helpful to know grid and meat temps and really nice to be able to set the alarms and sleep if doing an overnight cook.
