    Greengriller

    Just started today. Retired and learning to smoke n cook. I have my first pastrami on my new weber right now. Controlling temp is fun.
    Have read set up ect. First question if I'm allowed on this intro, where do you people place your temp prob, I have a ivation remote.

    Welcome! I place any temp probe in the thickest part of the meat, away from any bone(s).

      Also I wanted to say this is a great site. I have been enjoying it for a few days and decided to join. Hope I'm smart enough to learn something.

        Sorry I ment on the grill for the cooker not the meat. Using off set and placed it just above the grate on the off side but it's behind the meat. temps above the fire are 300+ but behind the meat its anywhere from 210 to 235.

          Green griller welcome to the pit. I like to keep the grill temp probe 2-3" away from the meat to avoid it being affected by the temp of the meat.

            Green griller, Welcome to The Pit! I think if you keep your Temp Probe at just above the grate! I have a Maverick 733 Dual Probe Thermometer! I think I would set up a dual probe thermometer and check
            the temps at both ends of your offset! I have an offset also with several modifications but frankly I haven't used it
            since I got the Maverick! I have been using a Weber Kettle, a S 'n S, and a DigiQ-2 Temp Controller for family cooks!

              Welcome to The Pit Green griller! Glad to have you here, and welcome aboard. I put my probe, when on the kettle w/ indirect heat, beside the meat if possible and as centrally-located as the meat placement allows. Try to position it so the airflow direction that the probe's getting wont be obstructed behind the meat, in the "heat shadow". And like has been mentioned, 2-3" away from meat out of the cold air bubble.

                    Welcome to the Pit! I didn't see it mentioned so ... be sure that your probe is suspended an inch or so above the grill. If you don't have a probe clamp, just use a ball of foil and stick the probe through it.

                              Welcome! After a little smoking and a little reading on AR you will be answering questions and helping others. Most of us start with no experience. It is a fun place to learn.
