I can't count how many I've gone thru. Can some one point me in the right direction to a good one that will last? Line checks grill meats etc Links would be appreciated thanks!

Get a Thermapen.  Best I've ever used.  I have two, one I've used daily for seven years and one that's a couple years old.  Expensive at $96 but worth every penny.

I use a Comark pdt300 

 

http://www.amazon.com/Comark-PDT300-deg-Waterproof-Thermometer/dp/B001U59MDA

 

It's been a good one and is certainly not pricey for what you get. It's probably the best thing on the market with the exception of the above mentioned Thermapen, in an ocean of crappy thermometers on the market today. 

 

The comark is really quick reading, waterproof and fits in a thermometer pocket on a chef's coat easily (big minus on thermapen's part IMO). I never have to calibrate it, it's always accurate.

Honestly a cake tester works perfect for me its what my executive chef uses it takes some getting use to but you can feel what the meat feels like on the inside with out putting a big prob in steaks

Be careful Dandal, cake testers are controversial around here. Glad others have seen the light!

I read a previous thread on this topic about two years ago and took many posters' advice and bought a Thermapen.  It is still going strong and incredibly accurate.
