Looking for a multiple probe thermometer for the smoker, I want to monitor the pit temp and 2 or 3 pieces of meat, I have seen 2 probe thermometers for pit and one meat but not multiple meat probes. Do they exist or do I need to just buy 3 or 4 cheapie digital remote meat thermometers?

tigman250, they may exist I have never heard of them.
I only monitor one cut during a multiple meat cook. Even if I have 120 leg quarters on the cooker knowing what the cooker is running at on the grates I only need to monitor one of the leg quarters for and average on the rest.

I wouldn't go cheapie.

It's just a two-probe thermometer, but I'll be purchasing a Thermoworks 8060 before my next barbeque. My Maverick ET-73 broke.

I need to do some tri-tips and flank steaks for the winter.

The TW8060 is probably as close as you can get. I'm a bit of a cheapskate, so I just use these inexpensive (but reliable) alarms from Thermoworks and keep a couple backup probes on hand. Normally use a single probe for the meat on each grate level and one for pit temp. I'm usually hovering around my pits, so I don't worry about remote monitors.

Thermoworks seems to have a product for everybody. All of my digital thermos are from them.
