    Thermopop, my new thermometer

    I usually rely on my leave-in thermometer probes, and when I had to use an instant-read I would use my el-cheapo which took about 10 seconds to pick a temp. I decided to go for the Thermoworks ThermoPop, the bright yellow one.
    Gets readings in 5-6 seconds, the large LCD display numbers can rotate w/ a button press depending on the angle you're holding it at, it has a backlight, range of -58F to +572F and it looks like big tasty lollipop. Granted, it doesn't have the mega jackknife handle of the Thermapen or the even-quicker readout, but at 1/4 the price of the Thermapen I'll be happy with this guy for a while.

    As long as it's accurate, that's what counts. I broke down and bought a Thermapen on sale at a killer price thanks to Pit Boss, but I could easily live with the longer readout time.

      I just stepped up to the pump so to speak and got a Thermopen. Yes it was not inexpensive but, I am not hard on my equipment and it is accurate. I may pick up a Lollipop just to have an extra around as my other thermometers are old analog lollipops and have a fairly wide band of accuracy.

        "Fairly wide band of accuracy" Lol. I like that. Have you seen the ThermoPop page? http://www.thermoworks.com/products/...NGFORENGINEERS It comes in such a delightful array of colors it was really really hard to pick one. I almost wanted to buy 4 of them just to have the color choice.

      Aaron, if you had bought five at the same time you would have gotten a discount. I have to same problem on occasion but currently I need to get a couple of great digital timers. Maybe as many as four for those times i am seriously multitasking in the kitchen and out on the deck.

        I'm aware of the Thermoworks Timestick (I promise I'm not a thermoworks salesman or rep). It's a narrow slip-in-your-pocket splash resistant timer. Looks like a small TV remote. Similar array of colors

      Aaron, I don't think you are reping for Thermoworks. Currently they are the best out there and most of us recognize that. I have been looking at the Timestick and i like the price. I am also looking at the "Big and Loud Timer". it is only $5 more each and I like the loud, 110 db, alarm and it also keeps counting the time past when it went off.

        I like the title of that one. "Extra Big & Loud Timer". Their regular gadget naming guy was on vacation that week I guess.

          On the fence with what to get for an instant read. I currently use a ThermoWorks dual lead TW8060 for when I'm smoking for a long time but wanted a quick way to check things when I don't have it hooked up... Everything points back to the ThermoPens being the way to go (with the ThermoPop being a very close 2nd). Is there really nothing close out there for competition? New to the site just this morning so looking forward to getting better at my craft - have a ton of questions but want to post them in the right place!

            Nice acquisition, Aaron!

            RP, I was in basically the same boat as you, using a dual-lead Maverick for my long cooks but wanting something for other quick checks. While I think a ThermoPen sure would be nice to have, I just couldn't see enough need to justify the cost for my backyard cooking. There are plenty of options on the Thermometer Buying Guide page here and some even come with the AR food temp magnet! I don't think you'd go wrong with a ThermoPop, if that's on your short list.

                I have a thermopop instant that I like alot. Orange was my color choice. I'm considering adding an iGrill2 with an ambient probe if they can get the "sh*t" together on fulfillment. Works like Maverick but with up to 4 probes and *software*!

                          I have an RT-900 or whatever is in there now. Figure a colorful one will compensate her for the ICelsius she plans to get me.

                        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                        Placeholder

                        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                        Placeholder

                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                        Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
