Gadget Question(s)

I was wondering if there was a wireless digital temperature probe that the majority of you all would or could recommend?  Also, as some of you might have seen I am building a table for my XL BGE and was wondering what you guys use in the way of lighting.  I'd like LED lighting to use while cooking, not for aesthetics...

    +1 on the Maverick ET732. Usually available for $50-60. Evidently the BGE wireless is a Mav. However, it depends what you plan to cook. The BBQ Guru Digi-Q is also popular for those wanting to control the temp as well as monitor it. If you plan to do a lot of low and slow overnighters etc... and don't mind spending a couple of hundred dollars, this uint might be for you. some folks have had problems with the Maverick, others have had them for years. 
    I think the key with the Mav's is too ensure the probes do not get wet; keep the pit probe away from direct burning lump; do not try and use the pit probe to monitor a 600F pizza cook; the food probe should be wiped clean, not submerged or put in the dishwasher. 

    Good luck, there are lots of choices.
