Really Good Bit of KitWorks a treat and is accurate. Used now for 4 or 5 years and it has never let me down. Probe cable is a sensible length and sits on the table of my weber one touch. One precaution I do tale is I put the wireless sender in a plastic bag if it is raining. It might be waterproof but it does not say so anywhere. [by Alan Keen]
Doesn't Last LongAfter about 8 uses the reading was way off. Of course you don't know until you take it out and cut into the meat. Mine turned out undercooked which means the reading was high, about 60F off. 2nd probe or unit(?) that has gone bad. When it works, this model or another, is the only way to really get a great cooked meat.
Can't Anyone Make a Durable Meat Probe?Use it in the smoker at low temps. Used it about 6 times in the past year. My AWR129 now reads 297 degrees at rest. The probe was obviously damaged, but I don't know how. The replacement probe will cost me $19.98 with shipping and handling. Makes me want to get into the business... Somebody has to design a meat probe that is more durable. The replacement probe shouldn't cost 1/2 of the entire 3 piece package either.
