I recently took delivery on a new Stick Burner. It was built to my specs and I asked that 3 dial thermometers were installed.
One at the fire box end. One Center. And one at the stack end.
The smoker is built very well. But it's clear to me that the Thermometers are economy grade. After using my Mavericks ( Which I trust) and adjusted the Thermometers to temp it was evident that they just didn't react to the temp fluctuations with much accuracy.
I'll cook using my 2 Mavericks but the dials are handy for general quick observations . ...that is if they functioned properly.
I want to replace them.
Looking for advice here on the best brands for Dial Thermometers. My fitting is 1/2 inch pipe.
I've heard good things about Taylor and Tel-Tru... But know that there is some crap out there.
Opinions are welcomed!
