Call me lazy, but I like the Weber Digital Wireless with the beeper. Set the temp, insert the probe and wait for the remote beeper on your belt to go off.

You are right about done before.
I am going to add this to my list of standard responses.

I own and use about 6-8 Taylors.
Have given about 10 more as gifts.
None of them has ever missed a beat except for one probe that died after a couple of years.
Basically bulletproof.

http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Thermo...245575&sr=1-14

Can not speak for or against any other brand--just what I know about Taylors.

When they go under about $19.95 on Amazon, I consider them a "buy".
I have seen them as low as $7.95 and stocked up!

FWIW.

I also have some ACU RITE probes. $5 when I got them at Big Lots a couple years back. They have held up well and accurate. I just prefer to use the wireless feature of the Nu Temps.

Wrapping foil around where the probe and wire join will prolong probe life. It's the weaked point. I go ahead and foil the cable that will be in the smoker. Makes for easy cleanup.

i'll with thillin on this one. i like my Nu-temps .wireless and lots of probes to stick every where.. you can tell how hot your pit is. what the temp of your meats is and if your beer is still cold in the cooler.. all at the same time laying in bed..it doesn't get much better than that...that real Qing..

It's all about learning and I'm sure doing that here.
I like the thought of the Nu-Temps that thillin and Hiloboy mentioned if someone can send me a link to them.
Phil, can members still get the discount from this link?

Thanx for the reply Hiloboy, I looked at the site and sure want one but it will have to wait a month or so. I just dropped 2 bills today on a new WSM on Amazon.com. Wife don't know yet but if I keep throwin those ABT's and fatties at her she ain't gonna complain much when she finds out.

I've got a Taylor single probe with remote. Been using it over a year with good results. Actually been watching for a good deal on another.

The Weber has been working fine for me but the multiple probes option that the Nu-Temps offer is something I would like to have.
