    Hi Bill! Can't wait to see the results of your labors regarding thermometers.


      Hey Bill! Like Aaron I'm eager to see the thermometer database. Should be fun times! And will cost me a few bucks... I'm sure


        We should have a lot of useful information that people can use to make informed decisions. We'll have well over 100 thermometers tested, as well as a few thermostatic controllers - one of the best additions to any smoker/cooker setup you can make. I'm looking forward to the big rollout, perhaps this week.


          I think I just got thermometer envy.
