Ritch,

While I don't have the instant read therm you mentioned, I have been using Taylor Digital Probe Therms for over two years and have found their quality and accuracy to be excellent. I don't think you can go wrong.

Speaking of Thermopen, I did notice that they have raised their prices, that's getting to be quite the pricey gadget.

Don't have that therm, but if you order two you would get free shipping.
Order nine and you'll get free shipping and save $25.

Thermapen blows the doors off any therms your talking about, not even close. Accurate with-in 1º and reads in 3 seconds. Name what ever you want Taylor, polder, whatever they are not the same.
Thermapen is certified for use by health depts, it is worth the $80.

I guess it all depends on what you need it for. Taylor suits me fine and the health department will never be breathing down my back for anything.

James,

Preheat your Taylor before you open your pit. Stick against your pit or in the exhaust chimney or somewhere hot to get it going then open your pit.
