    Hi Guys,

    Was wondering if anyone can suggest a good handheld meter and which probes you suggest I get. I was mostly looking for something like this image below. I heard that thermoworks are really good. I only have 1 "requirement" I do not want a thermapen for now I'd rather have a good handheld and buy a pen in the future.

    I will be using it mostly for

    1) Roasting

    2) Grilling

    3) BBQ

    So I am not sure which probes are best. As I am tired of trying to guess at which temp a roast is at etc =)

    Thanks in advance.

    Thermo works can be a bit pricy but they have a comprehensive selection. Some of the best stuff. Complete systems as well for tracking and storing temps as well as the standard probe.

    Ok great :) could u suggest a specific model ? My  budget is around $150 and what probes do you think I need for thick roasts and grilling(I know handheld is not best for grilling but I cant afford a pen for now).
