I broke down and ordered one just to see what all the hoopla is about. I have never used a thermometer to monitor pit temps. Where should I make a hole for the probe? It sure will be interesting to see what temps I THINK I'm doing as apposed to the real deal the thermometer tells me I'm at.

Yuck yuck yuck. Insert butt joke here. Where is the best place to monitor the fire temp? I see thermometers mounted all over the place on pits.

Thanks Brian, I have a hundred pounds of butts to do this weekend. It will be fun. (if it shows up on time) My plan is to just do them the same way I always do and just record the temps no mater what they are and not deviate from any thing I do any other time.

I go about an inch or 2 above since that is about dead center where the grub is sitting. One of these clips makes a great probe holder for on the grate and such. :biggrin:
Do you put the probe on top through the handles you squeeze? How do you secure it?[/quote:2etsfv2o]

With paper clips and epoxy, works great.

Well I'm not too sure about the 75 foot range. Mine is good for about 15 feet! I'm disappointed. I think I just wasted 45 bucks. Also the probe wire is WAY too short. I'm not happy at all. :-X

Only if you ground them to the black clips first that Bryan suggested in a previous post. 8-[

Well try plugging the NuTemp probes in the Maverick, put the probes in boiling water and if they're within a couple of degrees of 212 they work! :winkie:

Well now if your shippin to SC...your old buddy Jack needs another cooker in the fleet. I've recently had a forced depletion in inventory, and am too financially down trodden to replenish my supply.

I've ordered one of these instruments. I haven't got it yet. I'll let you know how I feel. Feeding 250 BBQ dinner on labor day. I'll give it a go in the Okie Joe.

Good Q!

Jack
