Academy Sports has 2 different wireless internal probe thermometers for just under $30, might be too much, but I decided to splurge since I will be attending to a deep fry method of turkey at the same time. I can wear the belt clip reader and not have to walk away from the fryer.

Thermoworks has just about any type of digital thermometer you could want, and they have great prices.

Maverick ET-732 is hard to beat. Duel probes, one for meat and one for cooker temps. Around $60. Remote transmitter allows you to be approx 300 ft away and still monitor your temps. Love mine.

I use these Thermoworks thermometers during competitions and at home. For the quality and the price, I don't think you can beat them. In fact at 2 for $30, I just bought 2 more! http://www.thermoworks.com/products/...emp_timer.html

A paint job of a shotgun shell?

So overall would a maverick 732 be better because it has 2 probes instead of the 1 you get from the thermo works? I understand the price is a big difference. But overall you'd get more from it?

What you are going to get with the 732 is this:
*Internal meat temperature.
*Actual grate temperature right next to the meat.

If you are using a short stemmed external thermometer to control the pit temp., you can have as much as 50* to 80* temp difference.

I personally use a 12" turkey deep fryer thermometer which gives me a temp. reading in the Center (middle) of the drum about 1/2" under the cooking grate and of course my brand new Maverick - 732

I don't think you can go wrong with the Maverick or the Thermoworks, just depends on how much you want to spend.

Walmart has a wireless probe for $16. I have one and have used it extensively... works great and good bang for the buck.
