Good quality thermometers

I do my share of smoking but I know the results suffer a little from not having a good read on the temperture. Any one have experience with any of these?

I always trust Alton Brown but of course his favorite is the most expensive since it does not come with the probes.

I don't mind spending the money for something that's important but I would like at least one first hand report on this, or similar ones.


One good review on Amazon and it's a lot cheaper.

Two good reviews

I bought a thermapen by thermoworks about 4 months ago. It is very accurate within three second of probing the meet. I highly recommend it. I know you didn't ask about the thermapen specifically. But it is a great quick read.

Thanks. Did not think to mention it but I had decided to get the thermapen already. I have a few so called "instant" read that take a good long time to register. I have a pretty decent quality infrared as well.

cheers

I have a small Polder instant read digital thermometer that has been a real workhorse. It's outlived 3 other digitals that were bought from Wally-world or Target. I've never even replaced the battery, I've dropped it in a bucket of water, it even found its way into the dishasher once. Still works, and is still pretty accurate. I preach about temperature control when cooking meats, and this little thing has made me a better cook.

I have seen digital thermometers that have a single probe that reads both 'oven' and 'meat' temperature, but I have never used one myself. I have a Williams-Sonoma remote 'meat' thermometer that has served me well over the years for Weber roasting, but for smoking I'd think the 'oven' temp is probably more important than the 'meat' temp ..
