Chef Dan BBQs, grills, and smokes a lot of meat on our covered grill/smoker and Big Green Egg, and he had been wanting one of these for a Long time! But as most thermometers like this are around $200, we kept putting of getting one... until I found this- at $25 this was a great deal!
A guy who hates to read directions, LOL, he found it very easy to set up and use; the numbers are large and easily readable, and as they are LCD and “glow”, he can use it outside in the dark- he grills a lot at night- which he did! The 2 probes make it really easy to use successfully, as you can get the temperature of different parts of the meat- such as a chicken breast and leg- at the same time.
The leads on the probes are long and slim enough that he was able to pass them through the holes on the cover of our smoker/grill, and so he didn't have to close the lid on the leads, which might have damaged them. Monitoring the meat temperature with the use of the probes like that you don't have to open the grill, either- you can keep the grill closed and use the thermometer, and you don't lose heat (or smoke if you are using it as a smoker) by opening the grill!
When you turn on the thermometer, you set it for what you are cooking (i.e. pork, chicken, fish, lamb, ham, turkey, veal, beef), and it tells you the temperature it's supposed to be when it's done, which is Very helpful! As it has turned out, it's truly accurate, and the meats he's made have turned out perfect!
