    Total Newbie- Would Love Recommendations on Thermometers

    I am about to venture into the pellet world.

    I've decided to go with the Yoder YS480 (maybe I'll be convinced to step up to the 640) and I'm going to go with BBQr's Delight Candy's Contest Pellets.

    Frome everything I've read about the smoking game (and watching Meathead's video on thermometers), choosing the right temperature instrument is critical.

    Ideally I would like to have something that I can read temps my cell phone (not "must have" but would be nice). I literally just read the review on the FireBoard FBX11 and it seems like this could do the trick.

    Being that I'm a newbie to this... not sure if the FireBoard is overkill.

    With that said, I would love some feedback on digital thermometers that you guys/gals use for your cooks.

    Thanks.

    • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

    For a little over $200 more I would go ahead and get the Yoder YS640 because later down the road you will wish that you had the extra space. The Fireboard is an excellent choice for what you are wanting. Also if you don't already have one a Therompen from Thermoworks is a must have. Cheers!

    For the record I have 5 Smoke thermometers, 2 thermopens, 2 thermopops, 3 RT345 key chain thermometers and 4 Chef Alarms so I'm not knocking Thermoworks at all. I just like the Fireboard better. Just saying...

      The Smoke from ThermoWorks is a popular wireless thermometer (it's about $100, 2 probes) and if you equip it with the WiFi Gateway (an extra $90) you can use your phone as the receiver, assuming you have WiFi in your home. ~$50-60 less than the Fireboard and two probes if you think 6 is overkill.

        I’m an avid Thermoworks fan. As DW mentioned the Thermopen is a must.

        i would have no hesitation buying a Smoke... that being said the probe quantity on the fire board is very enticing. Either way you go you will be pleased.

        Awesome decision on the Yoder. That is in my wish list as well.

          The Smoke is all I need for my smoker and it works great. I haven't pulled the trigger on a Thermapen yet but have a Thermopop and Dot. As I write this I realize that all of my thermometers are Thermoworks. Must be the free jelly beans with my orders!

          I have the Smoke, I was interested in the Fireboard but wanted to save some cash. I also have an InkBird BBQ to go which will connect to iOS. It has limited connectivity.

            I would recommend a Thermoworks Smoke.

            A decent instaread is more important that a remote read. Thermoworks products are a good choice here as well. ThermoPop or ThermoPen.

            In anticipation of your next thread: I would recommend a pork butt with Meatheads Memphis Dust. Dry brined overnight. It's forgiving and difficult to do badly. Can cook high heat or low heat. Is inexpensive. If you have a dietary restriction which precludes you from pork then I would recommend brisket with a simple salt pepper and garlic rub. 4 parts salt. 2 parts pepper and 1 part garlic.

            Keep us posted.

              I'm all ThermoWorks and also have the Smoke. If I want to monitor a 3rd probe I just swap out at the base unit on occasion. I also have a DOT and ChefAlarms that I had before the Smoke came out and they use the same probes as the Smoke. I just bought the Smoke Gateway for those occasions I'm away and want to check in on my cook. I also have a ThermoPop, a Thermapen and a Thermapen MK4. ThermoWorks customer service is top-notch from everything I've heard (I've never had a problem, so never had to contact them).

              I have the Thermoworks Smoke and Thermopen MK4. Great products and customer service. The only draw back I see is the Smoke is limited to two probes. My smokers are vertical so grates are at different distances from the heat source. It would be nice to have both grates and meats monitored.

                The Smoke may be limited to two probes, however you are not limited to one Smoke. I believe an AR member has three of them. Now who was that? ;-)

                  Congratulations! You will want one thermometer for remote monitoring (ie with the lid closed), and an instant read thermometer for the final checks throughout the meat. I have the Fireboard and love it, but I have the Thermoworks Mk4 for instant read. You won’t go wrong with either company. Enjoy!

                    Thanks everyone. I am thinking about going with the Firebird and the MK4. I like the idea of the six-probes that the Firebird offers.

                    Is my assumption correct that if you only have a thermometer that has two probes, you are using one probe for the inside of the smoker and one for inside the meat or are both probes going in the meat?

                    If the first assumption is correct where you want to have the temp of inside the smoker, why is that? I know you can set the temp of the Yoder say to 225, but are you just ensuring the temp inside the smoker that it is truly 225?

                    Also, a lot of people have told me to go with the 640 vs the 480. My struggle with that (it's not the money) is when am I going to be using all of that surface area. This is just for backyard smoking. No competitions and mostly just smoking for two of us (maybe four if we invite another couple over).

                    As long as the 480 can fit a 12 lb turkey in it, I'm good with the smaller one.

                    I will talk to atbbq.com and get their take but saving the extra $200 can make me feel like I'm getting the Firebird close to free.

                      Mr. Bones has it right! Demand will increase. Also, your plan for one probe for the cooker is right. Pellet smokers are much better at temperature control, but you may notice the temperature varies a little side-to-side. It’s nice to know what you’re dealing with.

                    Welcome to The Pit. If you can swing the extra $$, go for the larger smoker. You can always cook less than a full load on a larger cooker, but you can't cook more than a full load on a smaller cooker.

                      Your two-probe model is right. One in the meat; one on the grate the meat is on, at least a couple of inches away from the meat so you don't get in the cold meat temperature shadow. Fireboard, sez I - even though I use an old 2 probe ThermaQ predecessor.

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

                      the good one grill

                      The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                      The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                      Their 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.

                      Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing.
