    I love my RediCheck because it has the dual probes (one for your smoker temp and one for your meat temp) and it's wireless. The only down fall is the range stinks but the new model is suppose to have fixed that.

     Welcome to the SMF. A calibrated therm for grate/rack level and one for internal temps is a must for successful smoking. It's all good my friend.

    I use a Taylor, there very reliable and inexpensive. However, the 3 that I have don't have wireless remotes, which would be a real plus. But if you don't mind walking by the smoker once in a while the Taylors are very good.

    I ordered the E-732 from Todd, just waiting for it to come in. What I have been using is a wireless therm with a single probe that I got from Wally World for 15 bucks and a oven them that i sit on the rack. It works great and the range is decent. I cant wait to get the new one though.

    Hey all thanks for the info on the redicheck thermometer. Had a good new years. I smoked 2 chickens, 2 fatties and a leg of lamb. Every thing came out great. Only thing I didnt do was bring a camera to show off my cooking.
