When smoking or grilling larger cuts of meats, its very handy to have a good quality instant read thermometer to accurately determine the internal temperature for accurate cooking times. This makes sure the meat is not under cooked, or worse overcooked and dried out.
This particular unit had great online reviews even when compared to more expensive units so I picked one up at my local Crappy Tire.
The unit works as described reading temperatures in seconds. It has a backlit display, switchable C to F and folds for convenient storage. We've also found it very handy in the kitchen when baking items in the oven.
