The ThermoPro TP-02S is a hand-held, quick-read thermometer. It features a long 5.375" (13.6cm) probe with a narrow tip to improve response times.   This thermometer has excellent accuracy and fairly good response times.

PlaceholderWeber 9815 - Dial-type Thermometer
This in-oven/in-meat dial thermometer is an accurate but slow-to-respond unit that will work fine for its intended purpose, but will not double as an instant-read thermometer. It is intended to be inserted into the grill/smoker or food while it is cooking. Under these conditions, the response time doesn't matter, and this thermometer will work well as a low-cost alternative to a... Read More

1) Please try the table of contents or the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different.
