Pros: Durable, hasnt been burned out, has lasted me 6 years and still going strong.
Cons: bare bones. no bells and whistles.
I bought this when I first started smoking in college. I am not sure where I bought it from or for how much, I am thinking Home Depot but I am not 100% percent sure. This little baby is a work horse. I have bought some reasonably priced thermometers, nothing super fancy, only to have them crap out after a few uses. This one just keeps on going. It is bare bones. Only tells you the current live temp and a set temp. However once you get up to your set temp it will start beeping at you. To avoid this is just set this temp up to around 400 and go off of the live reading.
