  • Thank God we're free so don't have to make this choice! But if I had to, I would take a second Egg. You can always use an old hubcap to go indirect. Thermapen close second place.

    Ordered my thermapen this weekend. If you order a desert storm model, tan with the American flag, $9 goes to an injured soldier program.

    Priorities man! I told Wilma we're getting a small to go along with our large and that's final! OK, for some reason she went along with it because I'm not wealthy. The point is I got a pair!

  • I guess I'm not understanding why the thermapen is so valuable.  I have a wirless thermometer.  I don't have to even go out to my deck to see what temp my meat is at the remote tells me right in the kitchen. 

    I'm not knocking the thermapen but I guess I don't understand how it's superior to a normal wireless kit.

    @Stargazer, the Thermapen is the only way to tell if a steak or chicken breast is cooked, assuming you are doing more than one. If you have 30 wings on a grid, the Thermapen can tell you in less than a minute how they are all doing, your food probe can't tell you about any of them. It is a different tool for a different job. The value is the <3 second accurate reading. You don't have to hold it with a glove or pair of pliers waiting for it to read. 
    Wireless probe is great for a pork butt, but when it reads 195, is the whole butt there? Thermapen confirms temp anywhere in the butt in seconds. It is a great tool.

    Skiddy - that would be 90 seconds, not a minute, to check 30 wings - stop exaggerating. :D

    Thank you for the explanation.  Makes a ton of sense to me now.  I do a lot of roasts on my egg so I get a lot of use from my wireless probe.  I'll have to keep and eye out for them on Amazon and look for a sale.

    The best you are going to find is the $69 open-box deal they do every few months. Otherwise, used on ebay/craigslist. If you have Amazon Prime, you can save on the shipping and usually grab it for $89. Basic colors only, though. If you want one of the Special Edition ones, I have only seen them on the thermoworks site.

  • Just give me a free bag of Wicked Good.  I make all my own tools and accessories.  I spend my good money my favorite grilling meats.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

  • One more vote for Thermapen.  I have all the others but you can jury-rig raised grids and all that other stuff.
