BBQ remote thermometer

anyone using this type of thing?
I was thinking of getting one for winter Qing.
Over at beezees there are dozens with up to 4 probes.
I can't figure why one would want 4 probes unless one was cooking 4 different items at once.
In any case, anyone using one to recommend?

I don't have a wireless one, but I know that ThermoWorks wireless thermometers have a superior range so if that is of any concern you should check them out. Not offered on Amazon.

I have and can recommend the thermoworks smoke. That said there are cheaper options out there that work quite well. One thing I'd watch is whether you can buy new probes.

You can use a probe to monitor grill temp. Or oven temp if you think it might be off.

I have a single Thermoworks, not the remote type.
It's been very good, though I do need to send in for refurb as the gasket, I guess, has crumbs or the micro-switch is failing.
It has been very reliable.

I tried somebody's remote temperature cooking probe, for use in a gas BBQ.

The probe was in the meat and the xmtr was connected via a small cable and sat outside the grill.

In a matter of minutes the heat from the lid melted and severed the cable and that was the end of that.

I haven't looked at anything similar since, though I really like the idea.

It's just a matter of finding a better mouse trap.

Though it takes a lot of mice to make a meal-size kabob.

I have a thermopro 21, and it's awesome. Got it last year as a gift and never thought I'd need one, but now I use it all the time, including in the oven.

I use a ThermoPro TP08S. It is a duel probe and I use one to measure meat temp and the other for smoker temp (but you can measure two pieces of meat).
