We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy!

Thermapen - Worth It?

    but I cringe at the thought of sticking a big hole in my steak and letting any of my precious juices out....

    The fact that it doesn't make a big hole is one of the benefits of this device over other similar products, IMO.

    without a doubt the most useful grilling tool I have bought to date... my wife even uses it in the kitchen!

    Love mine. It is great to cook to temperature instead of time or looks. It is great to not have dried out food.

    @flynbob People here love the TP.  I have one, and it is amazing!  With that being said, it is another high end piece if equipment that add's to the quiver and makes my stuff cooler than the next guys or at least the un-initiated (just like my 2 BGE's).  

    I marvel at the speed & accuracy of the TP, but must say that if I was stranded on a island with my eggs, plenty of lump, & fantastic meats, I may bring this as a temp accessory instead:

    IMHO I do a lot of roasting (Reverse sear, Spatchock, Pork Loin, etc) and am more interested in bringing my meat to a specific temp and watching the temp with the dome closed than constantly poking with the hand-held.

    Any difference between the TW8060 and the Maverick?

    Just got back in town and had a few packages waiting for me!  I am interested in the TW8060 @allsid but that will probably be down the road.  Going to do some legs and wings, etc for the 4th. Can't wait to try the T-Pen on some steaks this weekend.  Don't forget the 4th Throwdown Competition.   Happy 4th...
