    Thanks Kathryn. Yeah, when I went to Amazon there were several with ranges from 650 - 1200. I was gonna get the one that went up to 1200*. Until I saw it was like $250. I didn’t need to know that bad.
    I know it’s gonna be around 1000* or so. Good enough for me! 😂

    That is a good way to destroy a probe! Try to avoid ever putting a probe or the probe wire directly above the charcoal.

    I use my IR thermometer to check the temp over the coals when searing with the SNS, and we are talking about 1000F+ of radiant heat, at the grate level above the SNS. Way above the temp rating for any wired probe I've ever seen.

    Panhead John, just be sure to check the range of the infra red thermometer that you end up getting. I got one from Lowe's and the max temp was 608°, which is not high enough for some searing surfaces. The Maverick IR thermometer I subsequently bought goes up to 1022°.

    Just FYI.

    Above the coals? Nuclear hot.

    Thanks. I’ve used one before, but don’t have one. I need to get that. They’re also good for checking a/c temps from your ceiling vents.

    Panhead John The one I bought that was a best seller cheapo on Amazon (~ $ 25.00) is far more accurate than the similarly priced one I got from Harbor Freight. FYI. They are great for 'calibrating' instant reads and analog thermometers using boiling water. Point it at boiling water, and mine read 211F. I trust a laser completely once setup right, and they can do some things nothing else can, like read the surface of a grate, pan or any CI.

    SnS Sear Temperatures at the grate above coals?

    I just got my Slow n Sear and am using it for the first time tonight. I’m doing a quick dry run now to burn off the new metal smell. Wow! Does it get hot! I only filled it halfway with coals for the dry run. I put my Thermo Pro on the grate above the coals, about 4” from the coals to grate, to see how hot it got. It error messaged at 575*. Has anyone measured their grill temp at the grate above the coals on their SnS? Just wondering how hot it gets on the grate right there. Thanks
