I rarely overcook a steak as I prefer it quite rare. However, "playing defense" on pork and chicken is a different matter as I had no device that accurately guided me to removal from the grill. Until now. I purchased the Maverick PT-100 and am batting 100 on pork and chicken. The thermometer is fast and while I have no means to verify its accuracy, my family's satisfaction of my cooked and grilled meats is vindication enough.
