What is that thermometer?

Between my wok and kettle-q I use the "dancing water drop" and "smoking oil" to determine proper temp.  Not exactly precise.  On a long lost comment I saw a pic of a thermometer that reads surface temp by pointing it like a radar gun.  What is that?  It might just be the ticket for what I do.

Thanks

  • Bayside - does it look look this? 
    Quite common with deep friers to determine oil temp.

    I use mine mainly for checking pizza stone temps, but also works great to find the coldest beer..

    Ok, I now have to get one of these! The mountains do get blue, however to know the exact temp of the coldest one will be a fun drinking game to play.

    I often say, what the world needs most is another drinking game.  Bring it on.  :)

  • I would rather see a picture of it checking temp on the beer rather than the pizza stone

    @Phoenix824 I had already used it to find a beer so it wasn't the coldest anymore.. But I will work on getting a picture of that.

    Thank you many times over.  Mine arrived today and  intend to use it for a cook tomorrow.  I have already gotten my money's worth just knowing I got the coldest beer from the cooler.
