You need to keep your fridge between 33°F and 38°F to prevent frost buildup and keep your food safe. A liquid filled thermometer is the way to go here. They are pretty darn accurate, don't need batteries, and you don't need the speed of a digital. The CDN is low profile and has hooks to hang on the wire racks. Get two, one for the freezer, too.

The ThermoPop is an inexpensive, high-performance, rapid-read handheld thermometer for food usage. It has a rotating display that makes it easy to read from any angle. It cannot be left in the oven or grill while cooking. This review has been updated to reflect a redesign of the probe which results in faster response times and apparently better accuracy.

The ThermoWorks DOT TX-1200 is intended for use in food while cooking. It has a large readout, an easily-set alarm temperature and a long probe cable. Unlike most thermometers of this type, it has a rapid response time that would allow it to double as an instant-read thermometer if desired. Because there are numerous probes available for this unit, you could insert one into one meat,... Read More

  The Maverick XR-50 is an extended-range, four-channel wireless remote food and cooker thermometer that employs RF to send temperature data from the transmitter to the receiver. It ships with two straight 6" probes and two straight 3" probes. The "XR" stands for extended range; the manufacturer claims the units will communicate over 500' (152m).

ThermoWorks, maker of a number of great thermometers for food, oven, grill, and smoker, has released a new tool ideal for outdoor cooks called “Smoke.” I got my hands on a pre-release copy and have begun testing it.

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

2) 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.

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