i am looking at buying a holland grill and was wondering about buying one with or without the therometer or does it make a differance


Brian, I bought my Holland without a gauge on the lid. I also bought a select comfort without the sleep number monitor. I sleep great and eat better.


The thermometer in the lid is good for letting you know when the grill has heated up enough to cook. I added one to mine after I had it a few years.


I agree with terry I've had my holland for 15 years now and they didn't have temp gauges then, I pre heat for 20 mins or more and start cooking


I put a temperature probe in my lid after a couple of years. I use it to monitor temperature when it is windy (or really cold outside) and reposition the grill to take advantange of grill placement for optimum temperature.


I bought mine without the temp gauge, then got one from Wal-Mart and cut a hole and put it in myself. It's a lot cheeaper, and helps when I want to cook on a lower temp. It's also good to let you know when the grill is preheated when the outside temp is really cold.


The Holland thermometer has a green zone so you know when the grill is heating & cooking properly. The key is, don't put any food in until it is preheated to about 400 degrees or better.(middle of green zone)
Using this type of grill without a thermometer is a little like driving a car without a speedometer. It can tell you if your grill is not getting hot enough or in some cases too hot. It will also tell you the exact temperature your grill is actually cooking at so you can better calculate the cooking time for different types of food.
