Need Dial Thermometers for My Smoke N Pit

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by brew, May 23, 2010.

  1. Newbie here and I have a Brinkmann Smoke N Pit that I would like to add dial thermometers to so I can monitor grill temp. I was thinking of adding a couple of these Taylor thermometers, but I am not sure if I am on the right track.

    Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated as I try to modify my SnP.

    Also, are there any brick and mortar stores that carry these types of thermometers? Home Depot was a bust today. Thanks.
     
  2. Anyone? Beuhler?

    Forget the idea of using a thermo in your lid. Plug the hole and use a digital thermo with a probe. Take a small hunk of cookin wood and drill a 3/32 or 1/8 hole in it and use it to hold your probe wherever you want it...
    If you look around at some posts you will see what I mean..

    I bought one at Home Depot and another one at Lowes. I think it was from char-grill, they were about $8.00
     
  5. Thanks for the suggestions. I will probably look at Lowe's and then look for a deal on a dual probe wireless digital.

    I was going to get a wireless probe one, but cheaped out and just grabbed a wired probe one at K-mart for $13. Works good and since I have a feel for how long stuff takes I don't really worry about checking it till it gets down to the last hour or so.

    That looks nice! I may have to suggest that to the ol' lady for a Father's Day add-on..
