Default Bbq thermometer /favorites?

Wife bought me a digital unit couple years ago. It had a remote monitor unit for inside. Ruined a prime rib once due to bad temps but seemed pretty stable with new batteries. Overcooked a brisket last week as it stopped at 178° and I kept pushing it instead of trusting my instincts.

Been shopping amazon but can find one under $100 with decent reviews.......any go to favorites out there?

Any product Thermoworks make will be great. The standard in commercial kitchens. Nice home bbq units. Fast and accurate. Great Utah company. You can't go wrong.

I had one of those expensive remote meat thermometers too. Killed my planked Springer. It's in the landfill now. I replaced it with a 15 dollar model from amazon and it's going strong.

Have had ThermoPro TP20 for about 3 years now. Been very accurate. 2 probes (keep them clean for best results). Had one issue, customer service responded quickly and got it fixed.

Highly recommend. Under $60

Also bought a ThermoWerks Thermopen MK4 recently for instant read....very impressive.

Doing the boiling water then ice water test, always within a degree of each other.

I have 2 I use. One instant read. And a remote. The remote when doing big chunks and the instant read when doing chicken, chops, etc. the remote is a Charmglow I have used for at least 10 years.

My GrillEye is doing fine. But it's over $100 and has potential for 6 probes. I actually use 4 of them when doing thanksgiving turkey which turns out superb.

This is absolutely correct. Any product from Thermoworks is fantastic. I have two. The Thermapen MK4 and the ChefAlarm. I use the MK4 for everyday use in the kitchen. I use the ChefAlarm for bbq'ed pulled pork, brisket, roast beef, and anything where you need to leave the probe in the meat for hours.

Agreed, you can't go wrong.

I have a Soraken 6 channel, but only really use a three of them at most, but it has been great and user friendly. And yes a little instant read should also be in your quiver, very handy and after several cooks you'll use the remote less,,,gregg

Same here, I just got to remember to turn the probe unit off when done.

Thermoworks Thermopop have worked well for me for spot checks. Mak Smoker has one built in so use that for long cooks.

www.thermoworks.com Best on the market. I have 2 MK4's instant read, and a Smoke unit. MK4 recommended, but MSRP is about $100. New Dash unit is $39.

Thermoworks Smoke for remote monitoring and one of the Thermowork instant reads for spot checking.

On one of my BBQ groups I have read a lot of good reviews on the Meater probes. They are on my want list just for the convenience factor.
