Be sure the tip is not touching bone, gristle, the pan or inserted into the cavity of fowl. 2. Current internal temperature of the meat will show on the display. 3. When the current temperature of the food reaches the target temperature, the wireless display will beep. Be careful when touching the temperature probe and probe wire if it has been in or near hot food or surfaces. Ambient Temperature Monitor the temperature in your oven, grill or smoker with the ambient temperature probe. 1. Adjust the ambient probe clip to fit the size of your cooking grate by bending as needed. 2. Squeeze both sides of the clip together and attach to the grate. 3. Thread the ambient probe through the top of the clip. IMPORTANT: Keep the ambient probe cord away from food at all times, even while cooking. Time Left to Cook Time Left to Cook estimates the amount of time food needs to cook. Cook time is determined by measuring and monitoring the cooking process, then applying a series of estimating methods. Time Left to Cook is designed to work best with large oven roasted meats, but can also be used for other cooking applications. 1. Turn the wireless display on and confirm desired settings including the Target Temperature. 2. For optimum performance, probe should be inserted into the thickest part of the meat and plugged in at the start of the cooking process. Do not remove the probe or power the unit off during cooking. 6 3. Once cooking begins, the rising temperature automatically prompts the wireless display to calculate estimated cook time. The display shows rotating dashes during the calculation process. Once the internal food temperature reaches 105°F (41°C), the calculation will be displayed. 4. When estimated time left to cook expires (or reaches 0:00), an audible beep sounds on the wireless display. In most cases, time left to cook automatically adjusts for changes in the cooking process, however the following actions may impact its accuracy: •Removing food from the oven •Adding cool liquids to cooking food •Changing the oven temperature during cooking •Disconnecting or removing the probe during cooking •In some cases, basting If you feel Time Left to Cook estimation has been compromised, reset the wireless display by pressing and holding the “POWER” button to power OFF and press again to power back ON.
