    Newbie Here.
    Please pardon the question if its stupid or has been asked. (I did a search)
    I have a turkey deep fryer. Is it alright to use the thermometer that came with it to test the internal temps of the meat? Would it even give and accurate reading? It is the thermometer that goes into the vat of oil to check the temp.
    Thanks!

    In addition to the slow read...as the temps you want are at the low end of the unit's scale, I'd doubt the accuracy within 10%. And that's alot. Get a digital. 25 bux well spent.
