Is there a trick to cleaning a regular meat thermometer?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I did a smoke yesterday using regular meat thermometers and by then end of the smoke, the thermometers were very hard to read. My wife thinks I may have ruined them. Is there a trick to cleaning them?

Is this the ones with clear glass over a dial and the glass gets kinda dark?

Spray some Pam on them and they should wipe right off.

Using a bar of soap and rubbing it on the dial before the smoke makes it come right off too. Though it works better on pans you don't want to get ashy, because you don't want to look through them.

Food grade silicon spray. Gordons carries it.
