    I bought a Taylor TruTemp digital cooking thermometer. Can it be used to take the temp inside of my smoker, by just laying on the rack or stuck thru a small potato? Or do I need a differant type of thermometer for that?
    I want a thermometer for monitoring smoker temp.
    Thanks

    Yes, you can insert it through a potato or a piece of wood. Just make sure that the point protrudes couple of inches past the opposite side.

    Run the wire in thru the exhaust vent and put the potato on the rack with a couple inches sticking all the way thru the potato

    I've used my Taylors like that, they work great for chamber therms.

    I use wine corks and they seem to last forever.

    Ditto. Don't attach that Taylor to a smoker door or cabinet directly with the magnets, it'll will melt the plastic sooner or later. Use something in between like a small board or wood block.
