Thermometers - Remote or Others

Don't have one and need to buy one. Recommendations would be appreciated.

Re: Thermometers - Remote or Others

I have two of these. http://www.nu-temp.com/701.htm
There is no on and off switch, I hardly use them, but they do come in handy every now and then.You need a tiny Philips screwdriver to change the batteries in the transmitter. witch is a pain in the ass. I have played around with a Weber wireless at the store, Think I'd go with that.

Re: Thermometers - Remote or Others

I have the NuTemp and really like it. You can use three separate probes that report back to the one monitor. The plus with the Maverick is it has the dedicated smoker probe.

Re: Thermometers - Remote or Others

After you know your cooker, a Thermapen is all you will need. May be expensive, but worth every penny.
Pal of mine has eight "Green Eggs" and won't pony up for a Thermapen. But if he can use mine, why should he need one?
