Go to any BBQ Competition, and you’re likely to see at least one competitor rushing to get their entry in before time is called. I’ve seen it happen to new teams as well as seasoned vets… and in every case one thing is for sure. You don’t wanna be that team.
Hang out with any competitive BBQ cook team at a competition and you’ll see a least one big clock prominently displayed in their cook trailer or tent. Chances are you’ll see a few. Then they’ve got their phone alarms at the ready, watches set, and whatever else they can think of to be sure that time does not slip away from them as they prep their entries. This gets especially interesting for teams who choose to compete between different sanctioning bodies (KCBS, FBA, MBN) where turn in time frames often differ.
One sure fire way to make sure you always have the accurate time and count down available is to put the ThermoWorks TimeStick to use. Whether you hand it around your neck, put it in your pocket, or mount it via its magnetic surface – the time is always at your ready with this baby.
A Valued Friend… There in the Nick of Time
TimeStick will be your favorite timer. Hang it from your neck, slip it in a pocket or mount it to a magnetic surface. Directly set your time, with one hand, on the Splash-proof numeric keypad. We’ve made operation as simple as can be. After your first use, throw away the instructions. The count-down bar graph gives you a quick indicator of remaining time. When a count-down alarm sounds, the count-up timer starts so you will see how much time elapses after your alarm. The clock is settable in 12 hour or 24 hour formats.
Other pocket timers are flimsy, hard to set, or have weak beepers.
TimeStick’s rubberized front panel survives wet fingers and the durable housing will last for years in professional use. Designed as a personal timer, the beep is plenty loud for you to hear but won’t stop traffic outside. Conceived in ThermoWorks’ design studio, TimeStick comes in 9 colors so you’ll instantly know who swiped yours. Set the keypad lock to prevent accidental button presses when in your pocket.
Since you likely subscribe to the multiple timers theory anyway… why not put the ThermoWorks TimeStick to use as one of the stronger players in your temporal arsenal!
