I have had the Thermosorks MK4 (4 of them) for 10+years as I used them in my catering business. I kept one in each catering truck. They are not cheap ($75-$80 ea) so when I sold my business they were among some things I kept. The MK4 is also easily calibrated for accuracy.
I also have their SMOKE unit as it has the meat probe and the ambient probe as well as a unit that you can carry around (I wear it around my neck) with the SMOKE unit I also purchased the 12” meat probe for deep frying.
All of these units I purchased directly from Thermosorks
Oh and as mentioned, their customer service is outstanding to say the least
Greasy meat not rendered fat issue
So I’m a newbie to snack sticks but have learned to not start off at a high temp.
My issue isn’t rendered fat it’s actually that the casing is slightly overdone and the inside is just greasy. As in the meat is greasy. So is it that they were just overcooked?
5 lbs straight beef
Snack sticks mix from fleet farm
Started at 120 temp increased in 10 degree intervals smoked 6 hours.
