Got two 2" as a mod to my char-grill.
Seem very nice and I tested the temp and right on.

I installed Tel-Tru UT300 (http://www.teltru.com/p-263-barbecue-thermometer-3-inch-aluminum-dial-ut300-6-inch-stem-50550-degrees-f.aspx)s (6" stem) in my competition UDSs, and I couldn't be happier. They are dead-accurate and very well-built.
