    I was wondering, these tend to get quite dirty over time and wondered if it was worth while to clean them or would a dirty one throw off the readings on these replacement gauges I get from Lowes and such. Those prongs can get pretty nasty looking after quite a few smokes.

    try to wipe them down with a damp cloth of dish detergent and water. Do not have the cloth dripping wet but damp

    Actually my Smoke Vault's thermo meter in the door in pretty close to right. Ok get back up now and it's true.

    I clean mine every now and again. Can't say I've seen a difference.

    Not really sure what kind of smoker you have. I put a therm on the lid of my UDS, it's just for reference. I use a steel brush on the probe here and there to remove the buildup.
