While I was grilling some chicken breast last night I was trying to use my cheap Walmart instant read. Well the darn thing takes so damn long it was heating up the head on the therm and I was afraid it was going to burn, melt or just give up the ghost. All the while the chicken turned out to dry for my liking. Well I had enough of that and went a head on all the recommendations from here and other reviews and bought myself a yellow Thermapen instant read. I hope it's as good as I suspect it to be.
