need help temp gauge

I own a 18inch charcoal kettle which doesnt have a temp gauge. Is it possible to mount Master chef OEM temp gauge over my kettles lid? Does those OEM temp gauges comes with a probe???

Here is one you can get from Amazon for $8.00 and will work just fine, if you look on eBay you will find the same with cheaper shipping. I have used these on several grills. Another option is to stick one of these thru a vent hole. Dome temperature is a relative thing in a grill.

I used to use the second one through the vent hole. Until that is I got the hang of the "Q".....

Temperature Gauge

I mounted my temperature gauge in my 18-1/2" Weber Jumbo Joe Kettle like you see in the picture.



I didn't feel like there was enough room in the top of the lid and wanted the gauge to read the temperature closer to the cooking grid. Works great...

Thermometer

Both the thermometer and the bezel are Weber products. This setup is a little more expensive as compared to some other products but is sure the best looking setup out there.

That appears to be similar to the thermometer that I purchased for my Cobb. I use the Cobb as an oven when living in my Caravan, so a thermometer becomes more important. I haven't tried it yet (but will in a couple of weeks). There is little reason for it not to work.

Thank u dennis. I also thot the same since the one with bezal may touch the lid and make less room for the probe to go in completely...
