The TW8060 has been discontinued. For current kits, click here.
The items in this kit were suggested by Meathead Goldwyn of AmazingRibs.com. You get the TW8060 AND an MTC Thermocouple Thermometer with a smart selection of three probes that can be used interchangeably with either meter.
Includes: TW8060 Thermocouple Alarm Thermometer, an MTC Handheld Thermocouple Meter, a Fast Response Meat probe (113-151), the Armored Smokehouse Penetration probe (113-178), and a High-Temp Flexible Ceramic Fiber Insulated probe (WD-08467-64).
Use the Armored Smokehouse Penetration probe with the TW8060’s alarm feature to monitor the meat to your preferred doneness temperature, and the High-Temp Flexible Ceramic Fiber-Insulated probe to keep tabs on the temperature of the oven or smoker. The MTC Mini, along with the Type K Fast-Response Probe will allow you to spot check your meat with Super-Fast readings in less than 3 seconds. Buy the kit and save $30.

Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
