Let's face it. We all know the Thermapen is the ultimate BBQ thermometer. It's ridiculously fast in its temperature readings, it's sleek and compact, the new model is splashproof and even backlit. However, the Thermapen doesn't meet everyone's budget. It's the Rolls Royce of BBQ gadgets. I mean it gets a temperature reading in 2-3 seconds! That's incredible for the guy manning the smoker who needs an accurate reading of his pork butt at multiple places.....FAST! The pic below is the new Thermapen MK4 on a spatchcock chicken. It's sweet! But have you considered the more affordable ThermoPop grilling thermometer?
The new ThermoPop grilling thermometer is almost as fast as the Thermapen and it's affordable. Only $29! A third of the price of the Thermapen! That's also the price of the cheap junk thermometers you can grab in any store and this baby can read an accurate temperature in 3-4 seconds, that's two seconds faster than the older ThermoPop model.
I wonder if this will reduce the demand of the Thermapen? Perhaps! If you are in the market for an affordable grilling thermometer and the Thermapen is out of your budget, this is your only answer. Check out the ThermoPop grilling thermometer and let me know what you think. I think this is a game changer when it comes to grilling thermometers!
Look at all these colors to choose from!
