Almost ready to buy that Thermapen

3 second readings... I am almost ready to spend the money...

This weekend's cook.. I put my digital thermometer in a brisket in the middle of the smoker.. it starts ticking up the temp... slooooooowly.. it was maybe in there 30-45 seconds before it finally settled on a temp... when i go to grab it and pull it out.. the @&^* thing comes apart... ticks me off... 85 bucks for a 3 second read is sounding much better.

Did cappie ever get his thermapen?

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

yep.

And I've shared that experience.

I just went ahead and ordered it...to me, saving 15 bucks and having to package and ship 4 other therms wasn't worth it.

But I'm lazy. There are enough others on the thread i started to
get the discount if anyone wants to take charge. Big GQ also said
he's in.

I thought I was nuts when I spent that much money on that thermometer. Now I look back and think what a smart move that was!
