How to Choose the Right BBQ Thermometer for Your Needs

0

When you are firing up the grill for an amazing BBQ, you cannot forget the extremely handy BBQ thermometer. BBQ thermometers are designed to ensure delicious barbeques. A BBQ thermometer is probably the most important tool a griller has. How else would you know when it is time to take the meat off the grill or when the food is done? Here’s what you need to consider when choosing the right BBQ thermometer for your needs:

Type of BBQ Thermometers:

There are two types of BBQ thermometers for you to choose from:

1. Grill Thermometer

A grill thermometer’s function is to give you the temperature reading of the cooking grate inside your barbeque. You no longer have to rely on your instincts when it comes to monitoring the temperature. A grill thermometer is a specialized device that will cater to all your barbeque needs.

2. Internal Thermometer

Internal thermometers have to be inserted into the meat. Unlike the grill thermometer, they give you the temperature reading of the meat instead of just the grill. Internal thermometers are incredibly useful and ensure your meat is being cooked at a safe temperature. You can find a BBQ thermometer with a wireless probe that will stay inside the meat you are cooking. This way, you will not have to keep opening the lid frequently.

Accuracy

You do not want to serve your guests undercooked or overcooked food at a BBQ. Many people rely on their instincts when it comes to guessing the doneness of meat. Unfortunately, appearances can be deceiving so you are at risk of serving your guests raw food. Having an accurate BBQ thermometer helps eliminate the guesswork. When buying a BBQ thermometer, make sure it is accurate and can easy be calibrated.


Ease of Use

When it comes to barbequing and using the grill, you do not want to be opening the grill again and again as this can result in precious loss of oven heat, opt for a thermometer that can be inserted inside the meat you are cooking. A wireless thermometer is easy to use and can be handled with a remote control so you do not have to constantly go outside to check the temperature of your BBQ.

Programmable

Programmable BBQ thermometers allow you to program a desired cooking temperature. This way, when the meat has reached the optimal temperature, your thermometer will notify you with an audible beep. Some BBQ thermometers even have timers that notify you when the desired time has passed. This prevents you having to wait around in front of the grill when you could be doing something constructive.

Affordability

You are buying a BBQ thermometer, not a grill. You want the thermometer to be affordable and not overly expensive.

Instant Read

Most instant read thermometers give you an accurate temperature reading in just 10 to 15 seconds so you no longer have to remain standing in front of the hot grill unnecessarily.

These are some factors you need to keep in mind for choosing the right BBQ thermometer.

I have needed new kitchen shears for a while- my old ones broke completely in half! I had heard of chef remi from some friends so decided to give their products a try. These shears were priced nicely and looked similar to my old ones so I went ahead and purchased them. They are great! I have been using them for about a week now and I am very pleased. The handles are very sturdy and my hands fit nicely inside. The shears themselves are nicely sharpened and are perfect for all your kitchen cutting needs! I have cut open lots of packages and such and these have worked fantastically! They come with a little clear protector too which is a nice added touch!

Joy said: Super Nice

Best quality that I have seen in a kitchen shear. Super sharp you will love them as much as I do

Grace Pullen said: Grates cheeses without a mess!

I remember Grandma having a much larger version of this for bread crumbs, this is an upgraded version of what she had and I am so happy!!! The silicone tub is slip proof on counters and the graters ( you get 2 types) are sharp and cut cleanly without smearing even the softest cheese. I grated parmigiano reggiano and there was no waste, it all went in the holding tub and not over the counter as does with my upright and my plane grater. I find fresh Ginger hard to grate, the smaller grater did it easily. Storage is minimal since they all nest together after your done. Cleanup is easy, dishwasher safe. Very happy with this item and will probably be using this almost on a daily basis.

Amber said: Two thumbs up

This product works very well it is easy to use and very versatile when it comes to different ways of cooking

Rachel Obregon said: A-peel-ing

This set is perfect. Not only is the handle easy to grip, but the peelers are easy to control and use. I love the one you can cut julienne vegetables! I love this set!
