Best meat thermometer for the outdoor grill.

Hershey Bomar | Dec 12, 200301:32 AM     11

My father and I grilled a couple of capons for Thanksgiving. For whatever reason the drumstick never felt loose and we overcooked em. Good thing we brined em first, or they would have been inedible.

I would like to buy him a meat thermometer for Christmas. Cooks Illustrated reviewed a few several issues back, but passd on all of them. They were some sort of thermometer meat fork combo.

Any ideas about the best meat thermometer to buy? Remember it's for outdoor grill not the kitchen oven.
