I bought this one, I think it is more than enough for checking pizza stone/pan temps.

For measuring surface temps I guess. I'm just trying to figure out how it would be used for BBQ, and measuring the internal temp of the meat. Am I missing something? Cheers!!!

It is good for checking surface temp of your pizza stone.

What I need is a good probe thermometer. I've gone through a few (3) Taylor probe thermometers. I find the temp becomes inaccurate. Might creep out of range by 5 degrees or more as per comparing to my Thermapen
