Need Dial Thermometers for My Smoke N Pit

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm a newbie who just got a Brinkmann Smoke N Pit. I would like to install dial thermometers on each end of the grill to monitor temps. I've been searching the internet all evening and SMF for specific recommendations for a reasonable price, but I give up trying to do it myself.

I was thinking about picking up a pair of these Taylor thermometers, but I don't know if I am on the right track.

Please post recommendations. Also, are there any local brick and mortar stores that carry these types of dial thermometers? Home Depot was kind of a bust today. Thanks.

Would you be better off going with a 4" stem or does it depend on the type of smoker your using?

some will say longer is better. I guess it will reach into the chamber more...Mine seem to do just fine..I did not want a long one extending way into the smoke chamber so as to not get into the meat if I do a big smoke. But hey..thats juss ME lolllll

Mine have a 1" stem. I didn't want them protruding too far into the smoke chamber.

For aftermarket thermometers I've had good luck with the Trend Model 33 --- 2.5 in. stem. HTH

These are the ones I got for my SNP.

I mounted them so the stems are just under the grills so as to keep them out of the way of the food.
