Greeting to all from New Zealand. It has been difficult to purchase a digital thermometer that would last for more than a few weeks here in NZ as nobody seemed to import them. I managed to get a couple of different ones but they failed quickly, then I got a Weber wireless one that lasted a little longer but quickly gave up as well. I checked out this site and it seemed that most pros use the Maverick thermometers and they seem to last well. I contacted Maverick directly and am very pleased to say that I have been appointed as the distributor for Maverick thermometers for New Zealand so not only can I get a great product myself, but I can also supply all my smoking associates with them as well. (maybe even make a few dollars). I would be interested to hear which of the units are prefered, so I order the correct ones in. Thanks in advance for your help and happy smoking. It is end of Summer here in NZ so I am looking forward to some good autumn smoking before the winter begins.
