temperature gauge for El Cheapo Brinkmann

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am just started in the art of smoking meat and decided to go with the modified brinkmann. One of the steps is to replace the temperature gauge with a higher quality one.

 

My question is what is the best Temperature gauge? I was thinking of just getting something like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007JI3HYC/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A180S6ZNSHZUZC

 

Does anyone have a better recommendation? Something in the $10-25 range?

 

Thanks!

I had used a Weber analog gauge with a longgggg probe to measure the chamber temps. You need a meat probe, digital, that will keep you posted on meat temps.....HTH, Willie

You might also consider a maverick et733 digital remote that will give you both meat and chamber temp very accurately. Great tool to have.

I ordered a nice one online from the previously mentioned site.   I already have a digital thermometer with a probe for using in the oven, Im going to use it for my smoking purposes as well. Thanks for the info. Now to just get the proper holes drilled.

I have two of these and they seem to work good. I put one in my Weber 22.5 kettle grill and the other on my Smoke Hollow smoker.
