Default Weber Digital Remote Thermometer

My wife surprised me yesterday with this thermometer, she had ordered it from our local hardware as a X-mas gift and just now arrived. Question one, anyone know much about these, are they reliable? Question two, I've never used one so say for example on a large packer brisket, where do you insert the probe? Middle way of the flat? Into the point?

elvis, I find digitals to be quite reliable (especially for meat temps). I periodically check all my therms against each other to see they give similar readings, a calibration by consensus, for lack of a better term.

As for probe placement, try to get the tip of the probe(where the reading comes from) in the thickest part of the cut, being careful to avoid fat deposits and bones which can give erroneous readings.
On briskets, I always try to get mine in the center part of the flat under the point.

Elvis,

I have one and it works like a charm. kcquer nailed it with probe placement.

Hi guys, just joined.

KCQUER -- what kind of grill is that in the picture by your name? I'm in the market for a new grill. THX (I'll try and email you as well)
