When I smoke anything it is outside without cover/protection from the weather. Sometimes the weather does NOT co-operate! Since I am sure I am not the only one with this problem, I made a weather safe box for my thermos to protect them from the weather. It wasnt hard...only needed a few tools, and a few materials. so lets get started! I had a crude prototype that i made out of a plastic food container from some nuts I had purchased at the crocery store.
To make a short story shorter....It got woreout. So I decided to continue with this idea but improve its design.
I had a weathertight box I had picked up from BassPro Shops as protection for my digital camera on my salmon fishing trip
The thermo fits nicely ....It will also accomadate the ET-73 you will just have to loop the probe wires a bit to feed them through the bottom holes...
This Box came with a strap attached that makes it easier to mount it to your smoker...I added the S hook.
I have another mount for my custom verticle smoker I just installed during an upgrade I am doing.
This design makes it nice if you dont have a table next to your smoker to place your thermos on ...keeps them safe from the weather...and up where eager helpers cant get ahold of them........
Thanks for checking out my Idea!
