Hi-- I am a new cooker and am looking for 2 really great thermometers-- one for deep-frying (esp. chicken) and one for on the grill...

I have seen a couple of grill thermometers that can sit inside the grill along with the meat-- was wondering what type of therm that was...

Anyways-- just something accurate and can read high temperatures-- And do probes tend to wear out easily?...If so, I dont want them...

Any suggestions...

    best place to get thermometers is a restaurant supply store--an oil/candy thermometer will be less than $5 and its the same one you pay $20 for @ ws--and i love ws!

      Best grilling thermometer is from Thermapen. Instant read within 1%, but they are not cheap.
