Need Dial Thermometers for My Smoke N Pit

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

  1. I'm a newbie who just got a Brinkmann Smoke N Pit. I would like to install dial thermometers on each end of the grill to monitor temps. I've been searching the internet all evening and SMF for specific recommendations for a reasonable price, but I give up trying to do it myself.

    I was thinking about picking up a pair of these Taylor thermometers, but I don't know if I am on the right track.

    Please post recommendations. Also, are there any local brick and mortar stores that carry these types of dial thermometers? Home Depot was kind of a bust today. Thanks.

    Would you be better off going with a 4" stem or does it depend on the type of smoker your using?

    some will say longer is better. I guess it will reach into the chamber more...Mine seem to do just fine..I did not want a long one extending way into the smoke chamber so as to not get into the meat if I do a big smoke. But hey..thats juss ME lolllll

    Mine have a 1" stem. I didn't want them protruding too far into the smoke chamber.
     
  6. For aftermarket thermometers I've had good luck with the Trend Model 33 --- 2.5 in. stem. HTH
