How about a nice pop up therm. I have a collection of them from previous turkey cooks.

Seriously, I would love to have one of those myself.

I'd like some info on this. The probe going into the meat has no wires coming out to a sending unit that sits on your pit and sends that info to the remote unit "x" number of feet away?????? If you do that's great and was/is really expensive.

Besides what the smoke, grease, and heat would do to any electronic device inside the cooker, I think you'd have a real problem trying to transmit a radio signal from the inside of a closed metal container (the smoker) to a readout on the outside.

It's called, your eyes, nose, and hand. I have two ET-73's I hardly ever use. If you know your pit, you don't need no stinking thermometer.

Yea I have a Big Block gasser for catering and would NEVER use gas on a whole hog cook. Stupid public don't know the diff between gas pulled pork or the real deal! I prefer to work smarter than harder!

Thermapen and a lot of practice cooks and you'll get a feel for when stuff should be getting done.
