Twelve inch deep fryer thermometer works great on uds

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Thanks for who ever posted the post about using a deep fryer thermo, it works great, i compared it to my digital thermo and is very accurate and for five dollars, even better.

I have been meaning to put my 12in thermometer in my UDS. I have around a 6in thermometer in there now and I am getting mixed readings between my two digital ones and my analog one. I was hoping to get the probe closer to the middle and maybe that will help some of my issues.

yes i think it will help be more accurate, alot of people on here said it wont work right but it works great.

Mine seems to be very accurate also. I just have to drill out a bolt to hold it in more securely.

I have a Bayou Classic 12" and it is actually more accurate than most digitals. It came with my turkey fryer outfit.

I use two turkey fryer thermometers in my smoke shack and they are right on so far.

I use the Eastman Outdoors models in both my UDS (two of them in Meatdawg) and they have always yielded me accurate results. I've tested them against my digital probes various times. Now I just rely on them without reservation . . .

Works just fine. I thought I had already posted a thread on this in the past but it looks like I hadn't.

So I just did.biggrin.gif

I have 4 2" holes as top vents for my UDS. As it turns out, my 12" deep-fry thermo sits perfectly in a hole. So I use 2 thermos. One of them I stick into one of the pieces of meat on the top rack. The other one I just leave resting through the vent hole down into the center to get me a perfect reading on the upper grate temp.

It's cheap and it works great until I can afford a better setup. I hope to get an ET-73 and do the range mods someday but thats more than I have in my whole smoker so I'm hesitant to do so; especially since money is pretty tight.

Holy crap!! That's a lot of exhaust area. Do you run it with all 4 open?? Other than what the thermos block?
