Pros - sounds like a great device
Cons - no longer in production
polder does not offer a dual probe thermometer anymore just their cheapie single probe models
Pros - several different presets for meats, timers, magnetized
Cons - probe life
This was one of my first purchases after I started smoking meat. The unit itself has held up very well, but I've went through some probes. That could very well be more my fault than the manufacturer.
Pros - Dual Probes
I've had this for over a year now and it still works great
Pros - Accurate, dual temp, can measure ambient temp or inserted into meat
I've used this setup with my older WSM (no temperature gauge) to help measure both the ambient temperature inside the smoker as well as inserted into the meat.
One probe is stuck through a shaved down cork, which is jammed into a vent hole on the top of the smoker to measure the ambient temp. The other runs through the smoker door and is stuck into the meat itself.
If I had any gripes, I'd say that it would be nice to have a larger display but all that does is save me a couple steps before I can read the temp.
