    I just for a deal on a remote digital thermometer. The brand name is "Smart BBQ" , it's sold at Target. It is their brand. It is only a single probe. It was marked down to $17.99. It's features include: programmable, built-in timer, stainless steel probe, 5 meat selections, 5 taste settings, built-in LED flashlight, audiable alarm, 100ft range belt clip for reciever. It's made be JLR Gear. I am hoping that it will be a good unit. The price wasn't to bad. I looked at non remote units for more then this unit.

    I just wanted to let everyone know if your looking for a remote unit. Check this one out at Target.

    NOt bad. I got a digital Taylor from them that they had put in the wrong place for the wrong price. It was supposed to be $22 and I got it for $12.[​IMG]

    Yeah I got a deal like that too tonight also. I was at a local sporting goods store looking for a slim jim nozzle for my jerky cannon, of course they were out , but I was checking out the other nozzles they had and they had two of the double flat jerky nozzles and they had one priced 11.99 and one priced 8.99. The 8.99 one is also cheaper then Lem sells it for. So I got the one for 8.99. But I still have to get the slim jim one.

    I have the same unit. I'm very pleased with it. So far its has worked very well. Can't beat the price. I'm tempted to buy a 2nd one.

    ColdJava: "I have the same unit. I'm very pleased with it. So far its has worked very well. Can't beat the price. I'm tempted to buy a 2nd one."

    Yeah I was thinking about that too. But I wasn't sure if they would both work at the same time or not. I thought that they might interfer with each other. So if you get another one let me know if you get any interferance. It would be nice to use one in the meat and one for smoker temps. But what the heck it looks like a nice unit. Hopefully it will last along time.

    Good point, Hadn't thought of that. If it does then it will make a good back up.

    not that particular unit but I have used two of another brand and I believe you pair the receivers with the transmitter.  Mine work fine.

    huh ? [​IMG]  ....do you mean you used two probes with one receiver....this unit only has one plug port on the transmitter for the probe plug....you have me confused with your reply, cause no where in my booklet on the smart BBQ thermo does it say you can use or not use two together......bob

    Each transmitter has its own receiver.  They are paired from the factory to only work with that receiver so what he's saying is there should be no problem using two side by side.

    I bought a JLR Gear remote therm at Kohl's  back in April and it never did work.  Could not get the base unit to synch with the remote therm.  Sent them an e-mail, they responded with a request for a picture of the unit which I supplied.  I have never heard back from them despite repeated e-mails.  Good thing I only paid $10 after a Kohl's discount.  The thing isn't even heavy enough to use as a door stop.
