Meathead (AmazingRibs.com) recommends this kit for general BBQ. While there is no alarm on the MTC, this kit still gives you the tools to track meat, smoker or grill temps and spot check with the Meat Needle Probe. Plug the probes in and out to check each temperature.
Includes the Mini Handheld Thermocouple Meter (MTC), a Fast Response Meat probe (113-151), an Armored Smokehouse Penetration probe (113-178), and a High-Temp Flexible Ceramic Fiber Insulated probe (WD-08467-64).
Use the Armored Smokehouse Penetration probe 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. Spot check your meat with the Type K Fast-Response Meat Needle Probe with Super-Fast readings in less than 3 seconds. Buy the kit and save $25.
Probe dependent. See individual thermometer capabilities on their links here.
