Thermopro to 07 on Amazon for $35. Thoughts?

post #1 of 3

I need an inexpensive probe that can get into the 200* range. This one has presets but can be reprogrammed. I don't know if that means it can go higher. Anyone have experience with this probe?

No experience with that model, but if you're just looking for a cheap meat probe there's a Taylor #1487 for $18 to $25, depending on seller. Our local WallyWorld has them in store, too. No presets, just set the alarm where you want...just a simple, no BS meat probe with a range from 32*F to 482*F on the alarm set-points. I now have 3 or them...been using one for about 2 years, one is about a year old and the third is about a month old...no issues using rechargeable battery (1 x AAA)...goes for several days of smoking on a charge...alkaline may run for a few months for the average user. It has a magnetic mount on the back (I've hung them on the side of my WSM with that, just below the lid...the head never gets hot mounted there), screw/nail hanger mount or a fold-out table-top support. Stainless braided cables with about 6" long angled probe...cable is about 3ft...could be longer, but I have my table close to my cookers, so it works fine for me. I have set probe head units on top of my propane cabinet smokers in the past and never overheated them when rested on a wood block for insulation.
