Thermometer Websites
Here is a list of thermometer websites. I have the NuTemp remote setup, and I love it. However, I thought it would be nice to have an easy to use resource to find info if you are new to smoking, or just wanted to upgrade. Also, I will add info as I come across it, or just post and I will add. If you want Mr. Moderator, you could make this a sticky.

NuTemp Thermometers

Maverick Thermometers

Thermapen (This is on my wish list!)

Fluke Thermometers tates&Category=FTHE(FlukeProducts)

Taylor Thermometers

Comark Instruments (Search thermometers)

Polder Thermometers

Pampered Chef

Cooper Thermometers

Oregon Scientific Instruments

What do you think of the NuTemp probes, I have the weber wireless but it seems like all probes are garbage.I wash them by hand and i don`t fold them,and i don`t let them near the high heat.

NuTemps are great. I've got the base with 3 wireless units. One unit seems to be going bad, but NuTemp said to send it back, and they'll send me a replacement. I've been through a couple other cheaper brands, and am 100% satisfied with these.

Also got a super fast Thermapen for father's Day. It's great also. I use it all the time in the kitchen also.

Excellent Noah !! Thanks... You might want to add this you your list.

Oregon Scientific makes a remote BBQ meat thermomter...(only measures to 200 deg. so it's great for meat but not for pit temps in the WSM etc.)

I have a Thermapen. It is excellent. I use to Taylor candy thermometers in the WSM's in the top vents. I have a Nu-Temp with three wireless sensors too but have not used them yet.

Remove polder from the list. They should be shot

Good list there, Noah. Gracias.

I have an observation. The Pampered Chef model is a THERMO-tech brand that is available at Kitchen Collection, Linen and Things and a Im sure a bunch more retail outlets. I have bought 3 of them, and I find they read about 3 degrees cool after you pass 80 degrees. I used my first one in homebrewing to measure the sparge temp of my water and also the boil. They work fine, but the probes go bad after awhile. I think I screwed up one of them cleaning the probe. They only run 15-18 bucks locally. Pampered Chef is a ripoff at 39 bucks.

Here's an exciting study on thermometers published, where else, in Illinois:

You da man Noah! As my boss says: this extra work youve done is appreciated and wont get overlooked. Uh huh.

Kevin 08-03-2006 07:12 PM

Great resource Noah. I give a thumbs down to the Oregon Scientific
(, which is the same as the Weber( Worked for awhile but not long. Seems to me that they all have the same problem of too light gauge wire leading to the probe. I am working on this and hopefully will have a heavier gauge replacement available soon.
