    Hahahahaha, Eric, I guess I quit experimenting with my probe about 21 years ago as well!

    Thermoworks makes what you are looking for. It has a 12" shaft. I think K types are all standard and should work, but I'd call Thermoworks to check, and they might have a better suggestion.

    And I wouldn't insert the probe until the oil settles down...

    I'm in the "There's only one way to find out" camp. Not with my probes, of course, but I'm perfectly willing to see what happens with your probes!

    These are ALWAYS fun to do!! Exploding Christmas tree demos, too!!! Loved the reactions from the spectators.

    If you have a long probe, can't you just insert it from above and keep the connection to the wire out of the oil? I can't imagine having it in the bird is any different whether the bird is in a smoker, grill or in oil.

    Thermoworks makes a 12" probe. I'm not sure if they are compatible with the Fireboard. I didn't see one that long at the Fireboard site.

    I’m in the I wouldn’t advise that camp. If you are uncertain of internal temp. Pop it out and check it in a few locations.

    Yeah the k-probes can take high heat, but no BBQ probes I'm aware of can be submerged. There's a different type of probe for that. Honestly with fried turkey I've never had one undercooked when following timing charts, and even slightly overcooked when fried doesn't matter.

    I don't think Fireboard would recommend them for that use case. From their FAQ:

    Fireboard probes in deep fried turkey?

    I have a Fireboard 2 Pro with the type K probes. Going to fry a turkey this year. Anybody got an opinion about those meat probes holding up in submerged oil? I would assume they are rated for it and that Fireboard would tell me they will hold up fine. But in reality is that the case?

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
