This is a work horse

Posted

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.

Decent basic probe, annoying alarm

Posted

Pros: Works well, long battery life

Cons: Alarm cant be turned off permanently.

This was the first Thermo i purchased when i started smoking 5 years ago. i dont recall what i paid for it but i liked the magnet on the back and length of probe cord. One thing i was never able to figure out is how to get the alarm to never turn on. The presets are made for grilling more so then smoking so temps above 165+ usually set of the "done" alarm. You have to manally set the alarm max temp very high to get it to not chime every 15 mins whats your meat is "done".   Overall its a nice cheap starter Termo
