checking temp of little chief?

  1. going to try making my first batch of jerky today. can I hang a candy thermometer off the grate inside the smoker, and will it give me a accurate reading or will the heat of the metal grate mess with the read out? What else would you suggest for smoker like this to use for a temp gauge, and how to install in correctly?

    Yes you could do that. You can get cheap oven therms at most grocery stores that just sit on the rack.

  4. dave i like that. I already built a inulated box for mine out of 1" think foam board with double sided foil. i will have to figure out something to work around that also.
