I have the ThermaWorks thermacouple with meat needle. Its instant read, smaller probe and a few bucks cheaper than the pen

This.

Go with the mini handheld Thermocouple meter and the Fast Response meat needle probe.

Cheaper. Faster. Smaller. And perfect for left-handed folks.

+1!!!

Ordered mine on a Tuesday late afternoon, and within 45 mins had a shipping confirmation. It was on my doorstep Friday. Shipping cost...$2.99

Can't be beat.

Ron,
If I didn't have a thermopen first, I would probably agree with you.
However, I just bought the wifey one of these from Thermoworks a week ago.
(Yes, tired of her looking for, using, then hiding my thermapen)...

It measures as fast as you think a $19 thermometer does.
It says up to 6 seconds. After using my Thermapen, that feels like double that.

Bite the bullet, get a thermapen.
Use a junk email address and sign up for their newsletter.

You'll get put in a monthly drawing for a free one, and you'll get emails on specials they run (like the recent $74 open box sell off).

You can by a competitor...or you can buy the real thing.
It's the best BBQ tool I've ever purchased.

i will second anybody that says to bite the bullet. i have wasted a lot of money on thermometers in the past, but when i got my thermopen i quit looking at others.

it is definately as advertised. so much so that when i lost mine in june somewhere in transition from the camper to the house, within a week i ordered 2 new ones so we dont have to transfer 1 back and forth. they are that handy.

now that the unpaid advertisment for the thermopen is over, pay attention to those that are telling you that the probe is more important than the temp on the larger cuts of meat.

edit: and when you decide to take the plunge on a thermopen...the purple are definately the fastest and most accurate....but apparently they are the hardest to find when they go missing.
