Realizing the importance of Time and Temperature when it comes to cooking FRF Pork and understanding conventional Pork cooking techniques and time do not apply to our Pork.  We realized FRF Pork is cooking at half the time as conventional store bought pork.  We made it a point to search out and review various cooking thermometer manufactures and are confident we came up with the leader in this industry: Thermoworks

Designed for competition BBQ teams and professional chefs, Smoke outlasts and outperforms every competitor. Not a cheaply-made housewares product, Smoke features a rugged housing with molded-in seals for splashproof protection. Smoke uses Pro-Series Probes which are interchangeable with Smoke, ChefAlarm®, and DOT®. See frequently asked questions in the More Info section.

Smoke is designed to track temperatures over an extended period of time with moderate-heat cooking methods such as smoking, oven-roasting, deep-frying, homebrewing, and Sous Vide and to be used while grilling. Smoke is not meant to be used in place of a digital instant-read thermometer, such as a Thermapen MK4 or a ThermoPop, or used with broiling.


After a great deal of research and reading of reviews we have made the decision to order our new Dutch Oven.  We decided to make the investment in hopes this will last us a long time.  We could not pass up this great savings at Everything Kitchens.

Due to the superior construction of the Staub cocotte lids, less humidity can escape during the cooking process. 10% more moisture is retained inside the Staub dutch oven after 55 minutes cooking time than in products from competitors.*
The self basting system consisting of distributed spikes over the whole inside flat lid ensures a continuous rainfall effect over the food inside the cocotte. The Staub self basting system in the lid is 9 times more effective than conventional lids.**
