Default **Nu-Temp NU-701 thermometer**

I picked this up yesterday off CL, did a search and see that it is the choice of Brethren! No meat probe, but it powers up and seems to function.

The guy said he was tired of buying replacement probes and wanted something simpler. The instructions say its a Simple Two Step Setup.

Seems simple to me, he must be in a One Step Program!

The best part- it was FREE! Now, should I order 2 more remote sensors?

I would buy 2 more remotes. I have used one of these for about 3 yrs and haven't had to replace a probe yet.
First thing to do is put high-heat shrink wrap on the end of the probe where the wire goes into it. It will help keep out water and grease.
If he had that much trouble with probes he must have got them wet cleaning them or got them too hot on a grill.
They will also read funny if the batteries start getting weak. Oh, and they don't like Energizer batteries. Use the Copper-Top ones. Something about the end probe being just a little longer.

Yeah, I love mine, and have now had it for a few years! A perfect companion to my Thermapen.

I have three remotes and use them all the time, although I would be able to get by with just 2. My first nu temp probe died on me recently, gotta try the high heat shrink wrap. I seem to go through several probes a season (mostly on my polders).
