except for mayb4e prime rib... I see no need for one. Chicken, Pork, brisket and ribs all give audible and visual and even olfactory clues as to when they are done... then there is feel....

^^^ exactly. I have a $10 wallmart digital that I keep as a backup to my Maverick. The only meat I temp check is pork butt since I usually cook boneless. Brisket gets the poke test, ribs get the bend test, and chicken I can tell just by how the skin looks. People that have them love 'em though. The owner was on BBQ Central podcast last week.

I just have just one, a super accurate black one. I rarely use my nu-temps probes now since I purchased it.

It's not an easy purchase to make but worth every penny to have that kind of accuracy and quick reading at hand. I plan to buy a backup at some point.

It is tough to justify the $, especially right now, BUT I honestly dont see how someone can know if chicken is done by just looking at the skin. We probe every piece to be sure, only takes a sec!

Can't wait - should be here Friday

It's not that hard, when the skin is black then I know it's done. haha. Actually it's not that hard. After cooking enough chicken over the years it's just one of those acquired skills that only comes with time and lots of cookouts. I might not know if the meat is 168.2 degrees but I do know when it's done.

But I will add that I have only cooked chicken for a catered gig once, for a friend that I did not charge, so my opinion doesn't count for much. If I cooked for Joe Public then yea I would probably probe at least a few to just be sure. I didn't realize this was in the Catering Forum. (not paying attention mod)

I picked one up this year at the Royal, just kidding Poopy. Seriously, I don't have one. Bigmista taught me the ice pick trick so I really don't need one. I'm a look and feel kinda guy. If I need a thermo, I use my Nu-temp or my Taylor.
