Does this thermometer make my mini look small?



Smokeware has a sale on everything on their site this weekend. I upgraded the therms on my bigger eggs. The mini gets the therm from the 2XL now. I like it.

    Those things make XLs look small! Makes the Mini look like a Christmas tree ornament. Your egg, your money, but I never could see the point.

    Hey, you asked... =)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Has nothing to do with the cost. It could cost 10¢, free shipping, and I wouldn't buy it. Just don't see... why. Like I said, your egg, your money.

    We get it, you are a fan of small thermometers. It just helps to make your mini look bigger. It’s a good strategy, I see your point.

    Rough crowd.

    But those which may be dealing with some degree of astigmatism, may find it useful.

    I shall choose not to discuss the compensation issues which seems to hover on such issues.

    However, to answer the question, originally posted; Yes.

    All good joking fun aside, I do enjoy the practical use of seeing the temp clearly from inside my house now. It is quite useful. But I do see the craziness that others do in having a big therm like this on a tiny grill.

    I added a large thermometer to my small egg for the same reason, especially when it’s raining. I can see it from my patio door now and not get soaked.

    I dig it.  I think it looks cool and I love big thermos.  Much easier to read and more precision in the measurements.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    New smokeware therms arrived today at work, put one in the work mini to give it a test.  I like the black I think.

    The black background and white needle does make it much more readable from a distance.

    what makes the mini look small is that it is small, a true novelty item if there ever was one
