BBQ Question: digital thermometers

I just got a question and I thought I’d share…

My question is that I want to purchase some thermometers (digital) for inserting into the meat like butts for example and monitoring the internal temp of the meat during the cook.

I have been looking around on different BBQ sites and have seen numerous models and prices. Do you have one that you have tried and tested and could recommend that
wont break the bank?

Appreciate your feedback

I use Polder digital thermometers. They get the job done for me. I found them at for around 30 bucks, so they won’t break the bank. I’ve put the Polder through some pretty good abuse, and it still works just fine. I don’t worry with all the fancy features; the only thing I wont a thermometer to do is read an accurate internal temperature.

I think this is the exact model I have. It may bit newer, but it should do the exact same thing.

Maverick also makes a good thermometer in the same price range.
