BGE Dome Thermometer

Do you guys take your dome thermometer out when you're finished cooking? I figured it should be weather proof and leave it in.

We've had a lot of rain lately and now my thermometer is all fogged up. You know how a watch face looks when you get water inside it?

I keep a cover on my egg at all times.

I've only had it about six months. Should I see if I can exchange it?

Being a thermometer for an outside unit, shouldn't it be weather resistant?

    I leave it in. It does get condensation in it but it clears up.

    You can drill a VERY SMALL hole in the back of your thermometer to let it "breathe".

    Yep, I drilled a small weep hole in the bottom and have not noticed any condensation since :)
