EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer Review and #Giveaway

http://threeboysandanoldlady.blogspot.com/2014/07/eatsmart-precision-elite-thermocouple.html

We love grilling all year round.  There's something about gathering in our backyard and just hanging out with family and friends, just grillin' and chillin'.  Everyone has their preference for how they like their steak.  Whether it's medium well, well or medium rare, it's important to cook the meat to the recommended internal temperature.


I've been a fan of EatSmart products for a few years now and am always glad to test their products when the opportunity arises.  The EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer arrived at the peak of our Summer grilling season.  

KEEP READING FOR INFO ON HOW TO ENTER THIS GIVEAWAY



FoodSafety.gov  recommends cooking ground beef to an internal temperature of 160°; cooking steaks and chops to an internal temperature of 145° and cooking chicken to an internal temperature of 165° (see chart below).  While some rely on the "poke and see" method of testing for doneness, I prefer using a food thermometer.  A food thermometer is the proper tool for testing for doneness and it's better to be safe than well...sick.  Let's be honest here folks, nothing ruins a barbecue like food borne illness.


There are a lot of reasons to love the EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer.  First of all, it's compact and comes with a handy nylon case that can be hung with your other oven or grill tools.

Secondly, it's easy to read screen.  The bold, digital readout is clear and even features a backlight which is really convenient when you're cooking at night or in low lights.


Third, the EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer is accurate.  Using the thermometer assures our food is cooked to the recommended temp and eliminates the guessing.   The probe is thinner than the probe on other food thermometers I've owned which means less juices loss when checking your meat for doneness.  


Lastly, it's super quick.  In less than 5 seconds you have an accurate temperature reading.


We own a huge backyard smoker and grill often.  We always use a food thermometer when grilling because checking meat for doneness is a guessing game, particularly when it comes to thick meats like ribs, brisket, steaks and roasts.  There's no way we would use a knife to check for doneness.  We're not baking a cake.  As soon as it arrived, we were able to put the EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer to the test.  

Using a food thermometer with a huge probe means you lose  those juices and all that flavor.  The probe on the EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer is so thin making it an ideal food thermometer.  


As promised, here's the cooking chart found on FoodSafety.gov.
