    Yessir, good eye! I still use one on the grate too, but on a kettle there's only room way over to one side so I like to have one up top like I did so I get an average between the two.

    Or poke the probe through an (empty) PBR can.

    It all works fer me, Doc; I can live in both worlds.

    Improvise. Adapt. Overcome. Oorraahh!!

    Prefers me receipts to be in Imperial, vs. Celsius, on accounta 60 yrs of familiarity...

    Stuck in a rut, I'd havedta reckon, but soon to be Gone, due to th Ravages of Time...

    Then, mebbe, (some) Folks can evolve.

    I should have done that yesterday. I had no room for an ambient probe in my 22" Weber with SNS, and a 10 lb spatchcocked turkey.

    I actually think Huskee used his brisket as the “clip” for one of his meat probes to measure pit temp. At least that’s what I deduced from the picture he posted in the Bark Friday thread. Hadn’t seen that method before, but I dig it!

    So grateful for the Imperial system. It would be awful if our kids/grandkids had to learn 0ºC for freezing, 100ºC for boiling. And, 1 calorie to raise 1cc of H20 by 1ºC. Oh, and the whole 10mm per cm, 100 cm per meter, 1000 m per KM, etc.
    But......wait for it......Merica!

    Probes sense temp, ain't particular concerned bout from where...

    So, Yup, sez I...

    Hi-Yo, Fahrenheit!!! :

    °F = (9/5 × °C) + 32.

    I have done that in the past and ended up with a Hot Potato and crispy.

    That’s just what I was going to say ….. I have pics somewhere of me doing that when my thermometer was a Maverick ET73 and I need to monitor to different grates, but no meat.

    Without the clip you can cut a potato in half, so it can set flat on the grill, and then run your prob through the potato.

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.
