Best Meat Thermometer...

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by tunah, Oct 29, 2015.

  1. Just joined, as my wife just purchased me a Weber Smokey Mountain smoker for my 30th b-day!

    Looking forward to my first 'smoke', but had a couple questions...

    1.  Should I do an initial smoke without meat?  How long should I run it if I do?

    2.  What is the best basic meat Thermometer (30$ and under)?

    3.  What is the best bluetooth meat Thermometer?  (So far I am looking to get the iGrill 2 as it brings some excellent stats to your phone - I love stats!)

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome from SC. It's good to have you on this great site. Good advice from CrankyBuzzard on the therms. The WSM is a good way to get your feet wet and cook some good meat.

    Good luck and good smokin', Joe.
     
  4. Thanks for the responses! One question... Why the Pam? What does it do?

    Pam or some other spray cooking oil will help to seal the pores of the steel and also keep down rust. The slick finish in the CC will help with a good clean cook with no soot or creosote clinging to the steel.
