Anyone got suggestions? I purchased a cheap maverick from home depot that thing is junk! I don't need remote temps, or I don't want to constantly monitor the meat temp. I want something worth the money. The one's I've had in the past were 10-15 dollar one's and they are junk!

Just need something where I can check internal temp of my food when its nearing the end of the cook. I'm just tired of buying junk.

Anything from ThermoWorks....just depends on what you are looking for. I foolishly purchased a Maverick as well....what a pile-o-crap

+1 on Thermoworks. I have the Thermapen but a lot of people here like the thermapop for a lot less $.

To leave in or spot check?

Thermoworks DOT is a great leave in and the thermapen is king for spot checks. Thermoworks products are excellent and you only buy once.

Looking for something for spot checks. I just want something where I can check the temp when I consider the food done. looks like the TermoPop is my kinda thing. I cant afford the expensive thermapen!

I love both but you can't go wrong with the thermopop for the price.

Yes, thermopop is as accurate as a thermapen, just a second or 2 slower

My Maverick works great for monitoring during the cook, and the I use my Thermapen when it gets close to time to pull. The Thermopop is cheaper and fine if that second or two doesn't matter. If you are just cooking for your family, get it. If you have a pit full of chicken that you need to check each piece before you pull, get the Thermapen. Seconds add up.

This one is great and is on par with the Thermopop. Best bang for your buck.

Thanks everyone! I think i'll be purchasing the Thermapop. I'm not much for reading temps but sometimes you just gotta know what your foods at. Especially when I'm cooking for people outside of the family!
