I have an ET732 to go along with my super fast RED Thermopen.
They work very well together. I also have a rough time ripping the RED thermopen out of my wife's hands.

Your wife doesn't seek your approval prior to buying shoes, and your thermapen is equivalent to maybe 2 shoe purchases. If she asks, tell her all the money you saved by only having "x" pairs of shoes enabled you to buy that thermapen.

They sound very, very good. I find a fifteen year old dented candy thermometer with a +- 30 F really helps my cooking a lot. You can find them at garbage dumps, or in your junk cabinet.

You're going at it all wrong. The thermopen is like a set of new tires. A great investment in safety and it helps save money (bad Q). Just say I care too much about ya baby to serve undone Q.

Because, you never know when you're going to be caught BBQ'ing naked and all you have to hide behind is the ever-so-trusty thermapen. Plus, it'll be visual evidence of just how HOT you really are!

732's are a great thermometer but it is not quick. My Thermopen is really fast and a great way to get a temperature when you don't want to put a big hole in your product.
BTW you could tell your wife that you need it for safety reasons.

I might just get one... I will have to wait until I sell my other grill, that way I can just transfer the money over to another item.

If its accurate and fast you don't need a new thermometer.

You're going at this all wrong. Try this on for size: "Honey I just learned how I can save money (no more wasted BBQ) and keep you and our guests safer (no more undercooked pork). This YELLOW thermopen will do the trick. But then again you'll have to work on your excuses for imperfect Q.

I debated about it for a few months.. I also have a ET732 that I love. I use it for all my low and slow on weekends, but found my cheap BGE digital was all over the place when I was trying to reverse sear steaks, chops, or chicken. I tend to grill foods during the week like these, and it has made a big difference in my confidence in what is done. I did some chicken the other day, and got my temp to where I wanted with thermapen, and then reversed seared the meat. Then moved the meat to indirect, and rechecked the temp, and it was still not done. I would have pulled the meat just by eye balling it, and served under cooked chicken..but with the thermapen I could knew it needed more time. It turned out great. I may be doing it wrong, but I usually get my meat to within 10 degrees of done on indirect, and then sear over direct for 2 min, then recheck temp.

You don't need it, but if you want it, you should have it
