New ET-73! Whoo-hoo!

Discussion in 'Meat Thermometers' started by red stick bbq, Dec 13, 2009.

  1. So I finally got me one of these jewels after my Polder remote went out, gosh, I don't know how long ago.

    So I'm doing a butt right now and I have the transmitter up on top of my GOSM resting atop a old wooden plank. Then I got to thinking...it's got to be all hot and smokey up there...how will that effect my new thermometer? [​IMG]

    So my question is, what do y'all do to protect your thermos from high temps? I was thinking about building an insulated box of sorts but that might be overkill. I've also seen some folks have them mounted on the smoker door! How does that work?

    Thanks!

    Congrats on the new ET-73! Hope you like yours as much as I like mine. It seems like there are alot of ways you can protect it from heat. I go low-tech. A couple of my old towels folded on top makes a workable heat insulator.
    In this shot, you can also see my gloves under the thermos, a little extra insulation.

    I put a shelf on the side of mine, its just plain modular shelving from Home Depot with a cutting board for the actual shelf.
