The Thermapen changed my BBQ world. To answer your question, YES.

My wife discovered my new toy and now she wants her own.
Chicken is exactly what has been driving me crazy.

Getting that balance between perfect internal temps but crispy skin has been maddening.


Steaks are going to be much more consistent, too........I hope. I have the marinade & rub nailed down perfectly, but often buy steaks of varying thickness or have requests for different "done-ness". A fast and accurate therm probing sounds perfect for the high temp action. No time to mess around at 650 degrees.

It came a day earlier than expected!!!!!



I went with the NINJA black.








No direct use today, as I'm doing ribs.






Beer's ice cold, though....











I also bought an ear therm. The flu wiped out my family earlier this year....coulda used it bigtime then.

I don't own a Thermapen, so no, they are NOT really that good.

Can't wait to hear the report on the Thermapen. I have been using the Thermoworks RT600C until it breaks. Been using mine for almost 2 years and still going strong.

I love mine, even have one I keep in the kitchen. What I though was funny, at my first competition at meat inspection, after seeing the meat they asked to see the washing bins, fire extinguisher and specifically my Thermo-pen, not my thermometer but my Thermo-pen

You're going to love it. My gf had mine for a couple of days and I had no idea how much I missed it until it was back.

I waited for the open box special. I think that's like $70?

This thread almost convinced me to order one.
ANOTHER one.
Yeah, they're that good. Fast, accurate, dead simple and durable. How many things can you say that about? I use mine for all sorts of things I'd never have thought of. Making bread? I use it to check that the water temp's 110˚-118˚ for blooming my yeast. Using my French Press? I use it to make sure the water has come down to 200˚ to avoid scorching the coffee. Same with brewing tea.
I use it for checking the temp on Hollandaise sauce so I don't get it too hot and curdle the eggs. I use it to check cakes. No more "insert toothpick, and if it comes out clean..." I shoot for 208˚-210˚. Bread, I shoot for 197˚-200˚. Perfect Salmon? Pull it off the fire at 140˚. You'll never have dry crumbly salmon again. Is that fried chicken REALLY done in the middle? Never a problem anymore. Well done steak? Not in this house. With the Thermapen I get them perfectly mid rare every time.
Want your Stout at a perfect cellar temperature? Pour it and let it sit on the counter until it's 50˚.
Is your wife really freezing, or is she just whining for the sake of interrupting your favorite TV show? Offer to "temp her" with the Thermapen just to make sure. She'll sit there quietly for the rest of the evening.
