Anyone used heat shrink to protect where the wiresgo into the probe on electric temp probes? I think that will protect the connection but I can only find shrink wrap rated to about 250F.
I do on mine, but I don't cook over 250. Also, I did mine more for connection weakness than for moisture resistance.
I go long on the first shrink, and then about 3/4 the length of the first. The 2nd shrink helps to put a but more pressure on the first.
Kynar will get you to about 350 degrees continuous rating. The shrink factor is about 2:1 where some tubing is more like 4:1 so you'll want to be pretty careful in measuring the preshrink size. We like adhesive lined heat shrink tubing for waterproofing. I'm unsure if Kynar can be had adhesive lined though. Please check back when you find what you're looking for and let us know how it works out.
I guess I should have popped in over here first. I just posted a thread on the Meat Themometers board!
have you get a maverick and if so what size tubing do you use?
