Chargriller 3" thermometer install

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I saved the football knockout from the SFB and cut two pieces one off each ends. Drilled in holes, put it on the grass and banged it with a hammer to get a decent curce to match the inside of the grill. Then I painted with high temp spray paint. I think it came out kinda nice. The metal was harder to cut than I thought it would. I was using a jig saw at first, then went and got the sawzall.
Was easier to cut, but still tough. Good thing my 14 year old son helped me! :)

Piece that went on the inside



Piece that went on the outside



Chargriller stock thermometer removed



3" Ebay thermometer that i'm installing. Too bad it's not adjustable! :(



Finished!

I know this is an old thread, but where can I find those red/white/blue thermometers? I want those kind for my UDS.

Nice job on the mod. Those therms are usually pretty much on the money. Congrats.

I bought a 2" therm at H.D. for $9. Its a 50-700 degree for my lid on a UDS . PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Ya might find them cheaper else where but customer service that is given by Bonanza is worth the little extra imo.

I got mine on Ebay, but I beleive it's from the same guy. You can get the char-broil thermometers from Home depot or Lowe's for $6, but I have one in my kettle grill and the red white blue ones seem far more accurate.
