Quick Tip... Quick Clip...

  1. I was smoking some bacon yesterday and since I was hanging the sides in the smoker didn't really have a place to run my digital probe.  I usually just hang it over one of the sausage sticks holding the porks sides when I'm using smoking sticks.

    Well not sure why but I was walking past my workbench and happened to spy an alligator test clip... and bang... it came to me....

    Bend a 90* in the clip, widen the barrel with an awl and Bob's your uncle....


    Now I can clip the probe anywhere... side grate brackets worked fine for this smoke... and it's a little slicker than the hickory chunk with a hole drilled in it I usually use when I have the grates in the smoker....

  2. Good thinkin there Salt.
