I was wondering about that hole in the handle but all 3 of my therms fit. I haven't tried the instant read or the Inkbird.Wheeeee!
Wolfe Pit spam is VERY good and it wasn't too salty, IMO (google "wolfe pit spam"). I've also done the Taylor Pork Roll recipe (also very good, although I have NO idea if it actually tastes like the real deal as I've never HAD the real deal!).
I sprayed the inside with cooking spray and it came out easily, but they say you can run hot water over the outside after you refrigerate it and it'll turn loose.
You can also use it in a Sous Vide if you have one...just make sure the water level is above the meat level. You might have to drill out the in the handle (my probe fit the hole in the lid, but not the handle).
I'm doing a grocery run this morning so I better get googling...
