You should have a decent thermometer to bring consistent Meat Extravaganza's to the table. While cruising E-Bay a thermometer from China was found It was very, very cheap. In fact it was only a whole one dollar and four cents. The shipping was only 4.36. How can you not go wrong? I jumped at this opportunity to get something for practically nothing.
Lets give it a real test. A prime rib roast was the perfect candidate. The
cooking chamber was smokey and hot. The chamber probably reached over 500 degrees. This thermometer could not handle the smoke or heat. An error code was the only reading that would register.Luckily, I had a backup of my Nu-temp thermometer to save the day.
I guess the old saying rings true. You get what you pay for.
