Review and Rating of the Smoke 2 Channel Alarm Thermometer

I have been waiting for the ThermoWorks Smoke 2 Channel Alarm Thermometer for a long long time and I so glad that ThermoWorks finally got around to making this incredible device. I recently tried this device while barbecuing some chicken and was impressed with the ease of set up and also the range between the main unit and the remote that displayed both the internal temperatures of the chicken and of the smoker. Not only was I impressed with the range and the ease of the set up, I loved the alarm feature along with the pin point accuracy of the temperature monitoring device. Another reason why I love the ThermoWorks Smoke 2 Channel Alarm Thermometer is because you can pair as many receivers to one smoke unit which really makes this device extremely powerful and useful if you have multiple cookers and cooking different types of proteins.
