New Thermometer

I am looking for a new thermometer to keep in the meat while it smokes. I am using a general polder probe therm but I am tired of waiting for the temp to show. I am thinking about those pen thermometers. Any suggestions for a good, lasting therm??

Get a thermapen. You should be able to judge, or make an educated guess based on experience, about where the meat should be by a certain time so constant monitoring really isn't needed. Only takes 3 seconds to read. Great tool. A must have!!!

Sorry, I am looking for an digital therm, maybe with a double probe. The therm I have now is not electric. Something that will last. I had a weber one but it was junk. And i was going to replace the current therm with a pen therm. So to rephrase, a digital therm. Thanks!

you want a Maverick.

Is that Knopfler? Glad someone else appreciates him.

have you heard anything from the cd he did with emmylou harris? good stuff.[/quote:3d0zb3wc]

I haven't heard it yet but I hear it's good. I've just been listening to the old stuff lately. I recently learned he released a Greatest Hits Private Investigations just last year which has all his stuff (straits music, movie soundtracks, newer solo stuff etc) I'll be picking that up.

Take a look here! http://www.thermoworks.com/products/low ... otemp.html

I bought one of these last year and use it along with my thermpen. They are great! It doesn't have a remote that beeps that you can take along but it does have an alarm that you can set for both high & low temp readings.
