My new MAN GAUGE has arrived

I replaced the dinky little toy oven temp gauge which came with my new grill with a real big, heavy American gauge. Now I can read my grill temp from 50 yards away! I'm not kidding.

Check this out. It's 3" across.

Cool
Did you stick this one in your mouth when you got it, too?

No, I'm not that hot! I don't think I'm man enough for the gauge...

But I did stick it in boiling water. It was right on.

It is a nice temp guage. That other one looks like it belongs on one of those toy ovens with the lightbulb.

I ordered it through these guys:

TEL-TRU GRILL THERMOMETER BARBECUE PIT BBQ SMOKER THERMOMETERS

It doesn't matter whether you're a man or a woman. They'll be happy to do business with you.

DERN, was hoping this was a gauge of MEN, you know like he's HOT or REAL HOT, it would be easier than dating them.

I could have gotten an even larger gauge, but I already own a truck.....

BTW, the gauge performed well last night. I don't understand why these guys spec a $500 charcoal grill with a lousy 25 cent gauge.
