    Hey Baby! Show Me Your Probes!!!

    Not that!!! PUT THAT AWAY YA PERVERT!!! 🤣🤣🤣
    What IIIIIIIIIII wanna see if how you’re storing / organizing your probes. I’ve got a FireBoard and I’m of course using their probes and storage… but to put it bluntly, their storage system sucks.

    Here’s a pic - there’s gotta be a better way! And yes I know this topic has been posted before, but it may have been a while and who knows what folks have come up with in the interim? 💁‍♂️

    Thanks in advance!

    Hanging in the smokers. It's like my probes dwell in mansions.

      Same. Glad to know I am not the only one. I thought I was lazy. I see now I am "efficient".

    I agree, I bought a number of those Fireboard probe organizers, which, like all things Fireboard, are quite expensive, and I don't find them to be really great. I wish there was something better.

    You know what I'd really like????

    Some silicone-coated thermometer probes (the whole cable and all) that will survive super heat AND are able to be run under water or in the dishwasher.

    That's what I want. THEN I might be able to justify $15 per probe. <sigh> As it is now, I've needed more probes for like 2 years, but I have a hard time justifying the expense - when I blow more than that on a piece of meat.


      I can't believe there aren't more options for probe storage. I've been trying for years to find some, my current method makes damaging them possible and makes my probe drawer dangerous to open for fear of damage.

      I like the oval shape ones, like thermoworks sells, but they are never in stock.

        RonB hmmm I coulda sworn they had oval shaped ones. The circle ones are indeed in stock and I suppose might be better than nothing.

        I use Thermoworks circle. No complaints here.

      Mine are with my Smoke Thermometer in a box AND they ain't pretty. Just take my word for it! Yes...I did mean to say "ain't" even though my Teachers said it wasn't a real word. Sorry no picture...it wouldn't have been a good one.


        The Weber iGrill probes I have came with winder spools that are, well MEH.
        I just cram everything in the box and loose my sh_t the next time want I use them.
        Author of my own misfortune


          I have no problem with the FB spools, but I've seen a hack the utilizes a piece of pool noodle that might be of value.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
