Title: Different lid thermometers
Post by: Hogsy on November 05, 2012, 02:07:45 AM
Golly and i were talking the other day about different lid thermometers over the years (yeah i know , a stimulating conversation) and noticed there's been some subtle differences over the years and wondered if anyone else had noticed?

Ive never seen the last one.  Wonder what that was used for?

That last one only going to 230 F is odd. Even smoking some people use a hotter temp than that at times.

I have heard that the temp is higher at the top as opposed to the grate yes?  So if this is true how would you use the thermometers in the lid?  Sorry for the hijack and silly question.

I'm pretty sure the last one is a meat thermometer
I use the lid thermometer as a guide, and use my mav when I want to be precise

On my upside down K code warrior mastertouch
The thermometer has the words WARNING HOT
with warning above centre and hot below
And it's only in Celsius

Is that a Weber therm?  Or just a generic?  That handle looks pretty rugged, did you get my package yet?

Next time I need to order replacement lid thermos, I think it would be worthwhile to spend an extra $10 and get the Tel Tru calibratable ones.

I think it is a weber therm never seen anything available like it in stores
Maybe an Aussie only edition
The handle isn't that rugged just looks a little rugged from the close up pic
Lucky I know a bloke who's skilled and can produce better than original replacements
And no package hasn't arrived  :-X
You will know when it does cause I will go AWOL for a few days while I'm pulling myself over them :P
PS did you send sweetsmoke handles cause apparently he's gone AWOL  ;D
