Thermapen Mk4 Instant Read Thermometer Review


The world of digital thermometers is vast and the options are endless. I decided to review a known commodity that was rated #1 thermometer by America’s Test Kitchen. It’s called the Thermapen Mk4 Instant Read Thermometer.

In the world of grilling and smoking, temperatures are extremely important not only when it comes to cooking the food properly but also for the health of the person consuming that food. Instant read digital thermometers can make the difference between a successful meal and an unsuccessful one.

The instant read feature and the accuracy feature are two of the most important aspects of any digital thermometer. Two more features which are found in the Thermapen Mk4 Instant Read Thermometer are the intelligent backlight and the readout adjusting for the orientation of the thermometer. These 2 features are not found in all digital instant read thermometers.

In the video below I am smoking 2 pork butts (pork shoulders) and the ideal temperature range that you want to achieve is in the range of 190◦ F – 205◦ F. It is also important to understand that when you are done the cooking process the temperatures will probably rise a few more degrees so you should figure that into the cook.

Hopefully everything that you need to know is included in the video below.
