    Thermapen hands down. I assume that's what everyone else will say too. Red is the fastest also :D

    Got a Thermapen a couple days ago and it is really great to cook to temperature instead of looks. I used to have to cook everything extra well done so my wife would eat it. Now I can cook to temperature and she will eat it and it is definitely much better. Don't waste money on a cheaper one and end up getting a Thermapen anyway.

    Yes.  I own a blue egg!  Call Atlanta if you don't believe me!

    RED!  Make sure you get the backlit though, it's bound to be handy.

    The pink one reminds me too much of Pepto-Bismol!!! Hate that crap! Mine is British Race Car Green because it is the fastest!

    Color of bile.  Wonderful.  That'd make me run pretty fast too.... ;)

    British race car green may not be the fastest on the market (1/1000 sec slower) but it is the most accurate when used in conjunction with the British race car green egg!!! ;)

    I see that no one has mentioned it, but you should really get a Thermapen.

    Orange is by far the fastest. But if I were to get a new one it would be the red backlit one.
