In addition to the Thermapen. I also have an infrared, thermometer with laser pointer. I got mine at Harbor Freight Tool Co. and have found it to be almost as handy s the Thermapen. Here's the link to the product. I use it for measuring the surface temperature of a skillet when pan searing steaks or chops. I use it to measure the surface temperature of my pizza stone which I get to about 650 degrees, the surface temp of the interior of my smoker, and, best of all, I use it to amaze my grand kids. Gotta teach 'em to be careful with the laser beam though. That sucker can damage a retina by looking directly into the beam.

I know some people don't like tools from Harbor Freight but for home use I've had great luck.

Once again I'm not in any way associated with HF. I just like the price savings, especially since there's one just a couple miles from my house.

Well, at $40 I'd love it too! ...and may head out to my local HF and see if there's one with my name on it.

Also, I ordered a Thermapen, as per another thread, and it arrived today! Talk about "zoom" shipping!! (I'd been trying to figure SOME excuse to buy one, and $20 off was just the excuse I needed) In the shipment was their latest catalogue and in that was another interesting item... a double-duty Thermapen and laser heat sensor together in one gadget...$90, as I'm recalling.

Looks like I've got to tell my wife she just bought me another birthday present. She'll be soooo happy!!!

Thanks, useful information!

Frustration with the new format. No moderator. Persistent spamming goes unfiltered. Increasing number of other BBQ blog options.

Yep, this format still sucks.  I get about 10% out of the forum compared to what I used to get.  Very poor.
