UDS Thermometer Placement

Discussion in 'UDS Builds' started by centuryonly, Sep 13, 2013.

  1. I'm about to build another UDS and I was wondering if there is anything wrong with placing the thermometer in the lid? I put it  the side about halfway up on the last one and the probe gets in the way when placing or removing grates. Not a huge deal but it would be easier if its not in the way. I know I can just go with wired or wireless but I'd rather keep it cheap. Thanks

    Centuryonly, morning....  You can put the therm where ever it works for you.....   Remember it is only a reference...   Place a temp probe where the meat is...  the difference between the 2 therms is a normal thing....  then you have to remember the difference between the 2 zones in the future and compensate for it...  There will be a difference between different rack heights also... Note those also.....  Your installed therm will be close enough for cooking temps ....
