This is the timer I use. I track the total time the meat is in the smoker. The total time the meat is in the smoker AFTER the smoker target temperature is reached. And, the total time after I have removed the meat from the smoker (carryover cooking time). It counts up or down, magnetic back, and come with a neck lanyard. Simple to use. Mine is black however, it comes in 9 colors. White, yellow, green, red, blue, black, orange, pink, and purple.
