Thermometer location

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Dumb question. Should the thermometer rest on the grate or be placed just above or below it?
post #2 of 14

I don't allow mine to touch anything in the smoker (Metal, meat, or whatever).

 

Put it whichever is easier, beside, above, or below the meat----Close enough to measure the temp near the meat, but not close enough to measure the cold meat fresh from the fridge.

 

Hope that helps,

 

Bear

Thanks! Makes sense.

You can put the temp probe through a potato, a small block of wood or you can order a grate clip from Amazon for a couple of bucks. Good luck.

Resting it on metal will give you a false reading because it conducts heat.

What about the metaL CLIP IT WAS SUPPLIED WITH.

Prior to getting a grate clip I balled up aluminum fouls and pushed it through and kept the foil in the smoker, got a lot of uses out of it.

The metal clips supplied with the Mavericks do not affect the temp reading.  I checked that against another therm when I first got mine.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Only the very tip of the probe has the reactive therm element. The clip is usually several inches behind this area.

I just bought the Maverick ET733 - there were no clips supplied for the probes :-(

I put the meat probe about 1 - 2 inches in the meat, let the grill probe dangle between the grates

That will work.

 

If you bought the Mav from Todd, I'm sure he will send you a clip.
