I don't have a digital thermometer you leave in while smoking and was reading about the DOT. I love the Thermopop and I like how simple the DOT is. For just a little more money I could get a Maverick which seems to be popular here, but is more complicated. Any first hand accounts with the DOT? Thanks! EDIT: Guess I should have put this in the thermometer section. Went ahead and ordered one, will post a description after I try it out.
