Default I'm changing all my analog therms to River Country

Nothing against Tel Tru...i'm sure they're great but i'm very impressed w/ River Country. Easy to calibrate and super accurate....GREAT prices. TIFWIW but i'm changing out my off brands and ManLaw over to RC.

Does anyone like the Glow in Dark because that's what i'm considering for the others? Thanks

Love the RC therms. Especially for the price. Really accurate and easy to calibrate if they're off.

I didn't see a need for the glow in the dark, but it would look cool!!! I have the RC in my mini and it works great.

I put the glow in the dark on my Q100. Works great glows bright for about a 1/2 hour when you hit it with a flashlight for a minute. worth the $$

I have one of these on my UDS. It calibrated fine with boiling and freezing but is about 30 off in the 250 and higher range.

Before I installed it I did the boil/ice water test and it was right on. I have it located between the two cooking grates on a UDS.
