If we're talking thermometers (which we are), then this guy definitely takes the throne for being the best of the best. The ThermoWorks Thermapen™ MK4 is capable of reading the internal temperatures of meat in just 2-3 seconds. Not only that, but it will deliver pinpoint accuracy with only a +/- 0.7°F margin of error.
Simply extend the probe and the Thermapen™ will turn on automatically. "But mystery Barbecues Galore person, what if it is dark outside?" Don't worry about it, the backlight will automatically turn on too! To use, simply stick the probe into the meat to get the internal temperature. No matter what angle you attack the meat at, the displayed temperature will automatically rotate so that you can read it. This little handy tool will be your next best barbecuing friend!
