Replacing Thermometer ~HELP~

Discussion in 'Propane Smokers' started by smokin relaxin steve, May 11, 2010.

  1. I have 2 Brinkmann Vertical Gas Smokers... I am going to be replacing the thermometers to more accurate ones... can any one suggest ones that will fit where the original ones are located...

    I notice on one that after cleaning there was small hole where the thermometer and door meet and now the thermometer is loose engough to turn... So i def need to replace that one...

    Also what should i use to seal it (obviously whatever they used didnt work out to well being how loose it is now)?

    And if anyone can offer some other modifications for controlling the temp a little better than please share (running too hot on low now that it is getting warmer out)... I was going to work on this either this weekend or next... thanks in advance...

    these are a pretty decent one here >> edit

    there are also very nice tel-tru therms here >>

    hope this helps both are good I would say the tel-tru is more top of the line but you will also pay for can calibrate either of them
  3. Thanks Got1... I will look into those!

    Anyone have any idea about getting the heat down some? Originally i adjusted the wood and water pan, but as it is getting warmer 90 degrees + it is getting harder and harder to keep the temps down in the 230 range...

    Perhaps something to regulate the gas flow better...IDK

    needle valve might work good for ya...not real sure about any other options as I don't have a smoker like that.
