Hey Lee, I poked around on amazon and came up with a couple with 4 star reviews one being a Polder and another being a Taylor. Reading some of the reviews like anything else some love and some hate them. Looking further it seems like the week point in them are where the probe meets the cable. Either water gets in there and screws them up or too much flexing at that joint does the job. So if that kind is what you want I would think it might be good to put a little shrink wrap around that joint and be careful when cleansing the probe. Now all that being said, I have another suggestion you may want to consider that might work well for oil or candy where the surface temp is likely the same as the internal temp (I make the assumption your stirring the candy) but probably knot worth a krap as far as BBQ where you are really concerned with internal temp. That being one of those laser thermometers. No joint to flex or need to wash, just point and shoot.
Looks like my link title is going to get truncated, but it should have said "Laser Non-contact Digital IR Infrared Thermometer"
