    I have a thermometer that has a 3" stem. Can I use that for the temp inside the fridge or do I need a longer one? 
  2. If not much is sticking out I would get one with a longer stem

  3. It should be fine. You may have hot and cold spots but you should find them and use them to your advantage. Remember to do a boil test to see if it is correct.

    Happy smoken.

    The whole 3" of the stem sticks all the way out. Maybe 1/2" more.

    What would you recommend?

    Well, I just remembered that I ordered the Maverick 733...or whatever it is called! I still want a dial thermometer too.

    Do you know how to calibrate a thermometer with 3" stem?
