    Anyone have this thermo?   



    I bought one and will be here tomorrow.
     
  2. I've seen them but never knew if it would be worth picking one up - let us know how it works once you get to play around with it a little...
     
  3. Did you get a chance to play around with this yet?

    Update......

    I have used this 8-10 time since I got it.

    In boiling water it was at 211.  Close enough for me.

    It is super quick.  3-4 second reading.

    Love the swivel head it has.

    Its not backlite but hey it was 10 bucks.

    I am very happy with it.

    It would make anyone a good therm.

    HA HA HA.  I was just typing it out.
     
  6. Cool thanks  [​IMG]
    Ha! Great minds think alike  [​IMG]
     
  7. I just got back from a run & I grabbed one of these at Home Depot for 10 bucks. It looks identical to the one you showed & I didn't realize till just now but the number on the pack is 6312 instead of 6492. Hopefully it works as good as the one you have...

    Sweet.  Let me know if you like it.
     
  9. I will man - from what I can tell it looks identical to the other one...

    Yup.  Its just like it.
     
  11. Cool - I have bellies in my smoker so I guess I'll have to grill something tonight to test it out...  [​IMG]

    Get it tested yet?
     
  13. I have some wild turkey in the smoker right now & will be using it to keep track of things - should be a good enough test for me to tell if I like it...

  15. It worked fine for the wild turkey I smoked yesterday. I'm gonna cook a couple burgers on the grill tonight & test it with them before passing final judgement...
     
  16. Ok I got to test it on some burgers tonight. The thunder storm yesterday with all the hail ruined my plans to grill but luckily I had an emergency plan to follow last night  [​IMG]

    Anyways... I made three different sized burgers with three different thicknesses to try it out on.


    Here they are on a little grill I'm trying out too. It was a freebie on CL - only used twice & the lady decided it wasn't big enough  [​IMG]   It was only 15 minutes away so I went & picked it up...

    The reason I made the burgers so differently was just to see if the meat thickness made a difference in the performance of the thermometer...

    Well it worked fine for all three burgers - I couldn't detect any difference between them. So after using it for the smoked wild turkey, grilled burgers & a few random things I am satisfied with the performance of this thermometer. It's no Thermapen by any stretch of the imagination (mainly in the speed department), however, it costs ten times less than one & I will enjoy having it around...

    Thanks for making me aware of it c farmer  [​IMG]

    How long did it take to get a reading?
     
  18. I can't really say for sure - I'll test it with a stopwatch & let you know. I'm guessing 6 - 7 seconds to stabilize going from one burger to another.  It wasn't a really long time or anything - my Thermapen just spoiled me...

    I didn't want to spend the money on a thermapen.


    Mine jumps to the temp then slowly climbs.
     
  20. Yeah that's what mine does. The 6 - 7 seconds time was what I was guessing it took to pretty much stabilize... It will work as good as a Thermapen for most things.
