I was looking for a good digital thermometer to use while grilling, because there's no point just "eye-balling" the doneness of meat. I'm not some professional grilling chef, so I really have no idea. I just want it to be done just right and not burnt "just to be sure". Well I found something better than a simple thermometer, I found one that not only talks, but alerts me when it's ready! The Oregon Scientific Grill Right Wireless Talking BBQ / Oven Thermometer is one really high-tech thermometer and more.
Simply place the temperature probe in your choice of meat ranging from beef, lamb, veal, hamburger, pork, turkey, chicken, or fish. Now select the type of meat on the wireless handset and it will show 4 levels of doneness and the target temperatures for rare, medium rare, medium, and well-done. Now you can basically walk away with the wireless handset and it will keep you verbally updated with the current status like almost ready, ready, overcooked, and out-of-range. I really like this device, but I would still double-check every once in awhile just to make sure the whole grill isn't consumed in a massive propane-fueled fireball which I doubt is an included alert.
