Default Thermometer Websites

Here is a list of thermometer websites. I have the NuTemp remote setup, and I love it. However, I thought it would be nice to have an easy to use resource to find info if you are new to smoking, or just wanted to upgrade. Also, I will add info as I come across it, or just post and I will add. If you want Mr. Moderator, you could make this a sticky.

What do you think of the NuTemp probes, I have the weber wireless but it seems like all probes are garbage.I wash them by hand and i don`t fold them,and i don`t let them near the high heat.

NuTemps are great. I've got the base with 3 wireless units. One unit seems to be going bad, but NuTemp said to send it back, and they'll send me a replacement. I've been through a couple other cheaper brands, and am 100% satisfied with these.

Also got a super fast Thermapen for father's Day. It's great also. I use it all the time in the kitchen also.

Excellent Noah !! Thanks... You might want to add this you your list.

Oregon Scientific makes a remote BBQ meat thermomter...(only measures to 200 deg. so it's great for meat but not for pit temps in the WSM etc.)

http://www2.oregonscientific.com/sho...scid=5&pid=284


I have a Thermapen. It is excellent. I use to Taylor candy thermometers in the WSM's in the top vents. I have a Nu-Temp with three wireless sensors too but have not used them yet.

I have an observation. The Pampered Chef model is a THERMO-tech brand that is available at Kitchen Collection, Linen and Things and a Im sure a bunch more retail outlets. I have bought 3 of them, and I find they read about 3 degrees cool after you pass 80 degrees. I used my first one in homebrewing to measure the sparge temp of my water and also the boil. They work fine, but the probes go bad after awhile. I think I screwed up one of them cleaning the probe. They only run 15-18 bucks locally. Pampered Chef is a ripoff at 39 bucks.

Here's an exciting study on thermometers published, where else, in Illinois:

Great resource Noah. I give a thumbs down to the Oregon Scientific
( http://www.zalmar.com/detail-Misc-Or...ific-AW129.htm), which is the same as the Weber(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...82826-0117543). Worked for awhile but not long. Seems to me that they all have the same problem of too light gauge wire leading to the probe. I am working on this and hopefully will have a heavier gauge replacement available soon.
