Default thermo works recommendation

I am going to buy a thermocoupler from thermoworks for my UDS and chargriller kamado. Any thoughts on which probes I should get? I want a pit probe and a meat probe.

THanks!

I've had a couple of Thermapens and have settled into their Mini TC, it just seems to work best for me.

I believe it has a K connector on the probes, and there are pages of options.... actually if you don't find the probe you really like at Thermoworks, you can buy any probe as long as the connector matches.

There were so may options I was hoping to see what the masses were using!! Something high temp is what I'm leaning towards.

Thanks

I use the Crocodile Clip Oven Probe for pit temp and the shielded Smoke House Penetration Probe with Stainless Overbraides for meat temp. The Armour probe is a bit thick to close the lid or smoker door in my case. Both work great. Just watch how much you crimp the probe wires.

I use these from Thermoworks for home use as well as competitions. http://www.thermoworks.com/products/...emp_timer.html

I also use a thermopen for instant temp checks.

I saw more people at the Seattle Eggfest using the TW8060 to monitor temps than any comp I've been at.

I use the Original Thermapen and a MTC Mini handheld with a 113-159 K probe. Wish the magnet on the MTC was stronger. I would stick to higher temp rated probes and wires on the K thermocouples.
