Is anybody needing a new top of the line thermo as a replacement or for a new build? I was thinking about buying a couple dozen, but I only need a couple.

These are the large 3" size. They are the nicest looking thermos on the market and are made by an industrial instrumentation company so the accuracy is second to none.

If you want to look at them, go HERE (http://www.teltru.com/barbecue.asp)

These things normally sell for between $35 and$50 depending on the model( the glow in the dark is the most expensive), but I ca get them for between $25 and $35.

If I can get enough on the order to make it worthwhile, I wll order several.

Is anybody interested?

Help me keep the thread bumped, If I can get about 10 or 12 total on the order, I'm going to order a couple dozen and keep the extras around for those in need.

Pick out which model you want. The plain dial is the cheapest, They vary about a dollar per jump when you go up to the fancier looking ones. The glow in the dark is about $5 higher than the rest, but what the hey? You'd be the only one on the block with a glow in the dark Tel Tru thermo!:D

Keep in mind Tim they require a 25 piece minimum and i'm not sure you can mix and match. :D

Tim, I'm in.........I think. The Tel-Tru you showed me the other day didn't impress me. I like the way the large dial units look online. I'd hate to be as disappointed with them when they get here as I was with the one I saw at your place.

Tim, I will take 3 of these below if you can mix and match. Otherwise, I will go with what you are getting. I will eventually build 2 UDS (one for Dad one for neighbor) and I want to add one of these to mine. (the one I bought is about 10 degrees off in boiling water - no big deal but I will forget that factoid I am sure)

Thanks!

That makes 9. If I can get commitments on another three, it'll be a done deal.

Oh, and just for the record, I will have to charge a small S&H on them. Prolly $4 or $% for the first one and another dollar or so for each additional. I guess I should have mentioned that , but I really just didn't think about it. Is that a deal breaker for anybody?

If we can get one more taker you will be able to.

I plan on having everybody that wants one to PM me their order so that I can confirm price and shipping cost before we order. Then I'll set up a Paypal deal.
That sounds like the easiest.

Anybody else, or anyone want to up for one more.

OK. will everybody please PM me with their order. so that I can have it all in one handy place. I will set up a Paypal account for payment and email or PM everyone back with Shipping cost and totals.

Please do so as soon as possible so that I can get the orders in for those that want them fast.

OK guys, here's what I've got:

All are 3" dials with 4"stems. all are BQ300 w/ plain white.

Flying Illini- 3 @ $25

Butt lover's-1 @ $25

Cbntmkr 1@ $25

Chargrilled-1@$25

Chadd117-2@ $25

BA LoKo-2@$25

Pec Mike- 1 @ $25

Somehow I coming up with 11, and thought I had 12. Am I missing someone?

There will be another $2.5 or so per unit for S&H to get them to me, and another $2.50 for S&H if I have to mail them to you.

I will get a firm quote and the post the exact total.

I would also like to mention that for another $2.00 per unit, you can get the one with the smoking temp range hilighted in red. I am going to order mine that way because it makes it a lot easier to read from a distance. I can get them either way, but for $2 more you really ought to give it some consideration.

Please post to confirm the order.

As soon as everyone confirms I will place the order. It will take them up to 2 wks to ship, and as soon as I get them here I will ship them out again.

Please post soon so that we can get the barrel rolling.

Tim, thank you for ordering these thermo's for us. I finally had a chance to mount mine today. I had to go to Lowe's to get a step drill bit. Those things are kind of pricey! Anyway, I snapped a few pics.

I'm about sold out of Tel Trus. I have a pair of black dial units left and one glow in the dark, along with maybe one anodized aluminum left.

I'm getting ready to order more inventory.

If anybody needs or wants anything special ( perhaps such as a swivel unit or 5" dial unit) let me know and I'll include it in my order.
