Cooking to temp is why SWMBO thinks my baked boneless breasts are the best she's ever eaten. I don't tell her about taking it out early and carryover, she's overly cautious when she cooks.

My temp probes die each year.

I get the walmart or bedbathandbutthole cheapy because I abuse them.

An expensive one would just suck that much worse to lose.

also, I like to have 2 in different places at once to make sure all my bases are covered. Too often the breast reads a nice done 160F and when you take it out and check the thigh, 195F.

Depending on the eye size I might have enough time to dough in.
