ThermoWorks Oven Thermometer

Quick question - I am ordering an adjustable rig and understand the need for a thermapen.  Ordering that as well.  I want to do some butts and wanted clarity regarding the need for a Maverick type thermometer.  Curious if anyone had tried the ThermoWorks Oven thermometer?  Seems like it would work and could save some cash on shipping.  As always the help is appreciated.

    really quickly, it seems that the Thermoworks Oven just measures food temp, the Maverick does both food, and oven/egg temp.

    All to get cheaper brisket! 
  • I have the Maverick 73 and have been using it for years, I guess just to say I will buy a thermapen for other cooks like steaks and I use my Maverick in chicken to keep form raising the lid
