I know its not a meat thermometer, but I just bought this today at academy,
I've been browsing this site and have seen this one in a lot of people's pics, is it a good one? did I just get a bum one? I'm wondering if it will be worth my time and gas to go exchange for the same thing that hopefully works right or if i should just be happy that for $10 it's very consistent in reading 15f too low.
I tried it in our hot water from the tap, meat thermometer that I trust says 135 (wife's idea to have heater cranked that hot, I dunno) and old smokey was 120 right on the mark, boiling water and it was right between the 195 and 200 hashes.
