non-contact infrared thermometer

I couldn't think of a realistic bbq or grilling use for this gadget, but it sure sounds like fun.

Correct me if I'm wrong, that gadget takes the temp of the outside. Not the inside. You gadget freaks drive me nuts! (more than I'm already)

We have used them to check the temp of wet concrete at the surface when we have problems finishing in the winter. All it tells us is if in a few months the top might pop off. Oh yes, it happens.

This is the one I got. I cant really use it on the grill. I sometimes use it to tell the the the differnces in temp on the steel on my pit in different areas.To get some idea on temp diffence. It is some thing I could live with out but I still like to mess with it every now and then. I did not buy it for bbq my dad got it when we had lizards. I think it goes up to 700
