iGrill probe eratic reading

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

When I got my iGrill (won it in a contest) it came with two food probes. Last night as I settled the cooker in for an overnight butt cook, when the probe I placed in the butt hit 70* it start bouncing all around.  This AM I decided to plug it back it to see how close I am to the finish line.  Same thing. I'll bet I fried it when I grilled some filets the other night for SWMBO. Am I looking at a new probe order in my future or is there a fix to these things?

Dang....not fun!  Could you call the company and ask?  Just wondering.  Are you having furlough Fridays like Lynn?

The food probes are not made for as high of temps as the ambient temp probes for I grill are!  sounds like you got it to hot!

Yes. I like the time off but not the 20% pay cut.  I know many folks lost their jobs in this economy so I can't complain too much.

I thought so...I figured I'd order an ambient temp probe as a replacement.
