Which moisture meter would you recommend?

I'd like to take some readings around the deck to see if I have any moisture in the core around deck fittings.... is there a type you prefer over others?

Any tips on using it, and what are considered good/bad readings?

Thanks!

Bad is anything over 20. Good is under 5.

Don't do it, You will scare yourself to death. Just tap with the handle of a screw driver if is sounds different and you are concerned drill a 1/4" hole from the inside, collect and inspect the fines.
