I was in Atlanta yesterday and swung by BGE to pick up a few things. I needed two new thermometers because both of mine bit the dust over the past couple months. I'm glad to see they have went to a TelTru. I've heard great things about them so I'm anxious to see how they hold up. Everybody have a great day!

  • Mine doesn't zero at the C/F marking like yours does. Maybe mine is defective. I do have a thermapen that starts at zero, so at least I got lucky on one end.

    I checked mine in boiling water and they were spot on.
  • I'm delighted the Mothership has taken this step. It's been long overdue. A first-class smoker demands a first-class instrument.

    Should it start at the ambient temperature? I guess it starts at 0 when first turned on. I really need one of those. Just need the extra $.

    Nice teltru BTW. Would love to visit the mothership sometime. I've only flown to Atlanta for work when heading to various areas of Georgia. Never really spent time at the city.

    We also use them in our scientific laboratories. Seem very accurate and reliable. I use them on my egg as well and have for years. Doubt there will be any issues with the Egg versions. :)

    What are they retailing for at the mothership?

    $27.00 I do believe. Not certain though.
  • It should start at ambien temps. However, when you have an original, super fast, red version of the thermapen, it can start at zero and go to ambien temp so fast you can't see it moving B)
