Everyone in the barbecue competition world knows how amazing and a must have Thermowork’s Thermapen is, but it comes with a very steep price. A lot of people have asked me is there any other alternative thermometers on the market so that we aren’t dropping a lot of money. Well my great friends at Thermoworks have come up with a perfect solution: the ThermoPop.
The ThermoPop is the first rotating display pocket thermometer, and with a simple button press rotates the display in 90 degree increments and it only costs 24.00! The main different however from the Thermapen is that it takes 5 to 6 seconds to get an reading within the final degree where the Thermapen gets an accurate reading in 3 seconds.
In addition to the ThermoPop’s rotating display, it also features big digits and even a backlight for those dark nights during a barbecue competition.
I used my ThermoPop when I made Marinated Cherry Zinfandel Grilled Beef Short Ribs and I was super impressed with both the accuracy and also the speed it took to get an accurate reading.
The ThermoPop is a great gift where you don’t want to spend a lot of money but still get the quality and the accuracy of having a ThermoWorks product. In addition to being a lot cheaper you are still getting a better quality product than a thermometer that you would pick up at a Bed Bath and Beyond or other big box food store, so make sure that you pick one up today! I promise you will not be disappointed, actually you will want to start getting Thermopop’s for everyone on your barbecue competition team in a color that matches their Thermapen!
