Probe through potato?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Have noticed on some q-view pics that the thermometer probe seems to be stuck through a potato...wondering why this is?

The potato keeps the probe in place and off the grate itself and allows for an accurate temperature. Some people use a block of wood with a hole drilled through it

I see that Piney has already answered your question. I use a chunk of hickory with a hole drilled through it thats just a hair bigger than the probe.

I usually use the small potato method, but sometimes i use a 2-3 inch piece of celery. Carrot will probably work, too.
