I've been through many thermometers for BBQ and found that "you get what you pay for".Frank311 wrote: ↑Jun 15th, 2018 11:12 amWhat kind of thermometers does everyone recommend? I'm not interested in anything bluetooth or wireless. Do you need to spend $100 or would something like like this do the trick?
To keep the images going, here's some ribs I pre-smoked last night (going to finish them with sauce on the grill tomorrow). And a sirloin top roast I smoked last weekend.
My current set up this:
1 - Thermoworks Smoke
1 - Thermoworks Smoke Gateway (allows for internet connectivity....so I can leave the house, etc). The other awesome thing about it is when I do overnight cooks, instead of sounding the alarm, the Gateway vibrates my Apple watch to let me know that the temps are too high or too low. Super useful when doing Brisket, etc (meat that doesn't handle temp fluctuations well).
1 - Thermworks Thermapen MK4
Yes, the setup is expensive...but you'll be golden/set for awhile.
I bought everything over the course of two years from various sales, etc.
We also have a Thermoworks Chef Alarm (for cooking in the oven)....the other nice thing is the Smoke/Chef Alarm/DOT all use the same probes....so they are interchangeable.
The only thing I wish is that the Smoke had for than two channels....debating getting another Smoke, waiting for Thermoworks to come up with a new product or getting the FireBoard.
