Holland Newbie

Okay, so it's the first time using my Holland Thermometer. I read the directions, but quite frankly, they didn't help me. I figured out how to set the cooking by time, but I thought the idea of the thermometer was to alert me when the meat is done to the desired internal temperature. As soon as I put the thermometer probe in my chicken, it showed on the handheld a temp of 240 degrees and rising. Obviously, it's giving me the temp of the internal grill and not the chicken. How do I set the handheld to beep when the internal temp of the chicken reaches the desired 180 degrees?

Not sure what type of thermometer you have, but if it's the Holland thermometer, then make sure that you have it on set to read Fahrenheit and not Celsius. That may possibly be your problem. Sometimes I forget to change mine. There is a button on the back of the meter to change this. Hope this helps !

Also be sure to use alkaline batteries. I used name brand ones like the "D" brand.
