I did try the air fryer today and made some wings on it. It taste just like frying it on oil. Skin was crispy but much more healthier. LOL.

I’m down for some healthier meals for sure. I haven’t decided on my New Years resolution yet... either eat healthier or start working out. Tough choice.

Those looks good!

That looks good. I’m working on a smoked turkey breast.

Btw, what’s your secret on the air fried wings? They look amazing. I’ve tried them in mine but can’t seem to get the color nor crisp.

No secret, I mix the wings with rub and do 10-12 min each side @375.

That looks amazing! It's been a wee bit too cold here in western PA to drag the smoker out. I did buy some baby back ribs recently to smoke.

Nice!!! Last one of those I did took forever! I just got out those baby back ribs to smoke today. I'm not much for smoking in freezing cold weather!

Thermapen IR

Post by Ware » Thu Mar 01, 2018 8:38 am

Just got an email about the new Thermapen IR.

Great idea, but I'll probably sit this one out. I don't think I would trade the backlight on my Mk4 for the IR capability. I've been on the Thermapen train for a while and I'm really starting to notice how they string out the release of new features.

Nice! I agree about waiting. I have the non-backlit version and will try and wait to see if they combine the two features of the IR with the Mk4

I too have the MK4 and love it, this doesn't seem like much of an upgrade to me since they took away the backlight and the waterproofing.

I got my digital thermometer for under 10 bucks on Amazon and I've been using it for about a year with great results. Is the Thermapen that much better that the price is over $100?

It's an instant read, so you get your temp in 1-2 seconds instead of 3-5+ on most other thermometers. There quality is second to none also :thumbup:

It reads the temp fast enough I no longer have to take the food off the grill to check it. My old thermometer (now my soil thermometer) took long enough my hand wasn’t happy about being cooked. I liked mine so well I bought my dad one for Father’s Day last year.

A co-worker has one of the cheaper Amazon versions and he seems to like it. I think it’s probably like anything else in that you can spend whatever you are comfortable spending. The Thermapen is made in England. The cheap ones presumably come from China.
