Another Tel-tru ?

edited 5:08AM in EggHead Forum
Just received my Tel-tru Thermo's. I ordered a 2 1/2 and 5 inch. With the Five inch stem do you put the stem all the way down. Meaning the nut right against the outside of the egg. Do people use the inside clip to hold in place? I have a Large Egg. I ordered one of each because I figured the longer stem would be poking larger cooked items. Do you notice any temp variation between the 2 1/2 and 5 inch on a large?

    <p />gdub16,
    the 5" is only 1" longer than original equipment. I protect the back using a toy wooden wheel - that is 1/2" thick so I'm only protuding 1/2" more than before - I don't think that is much reason for alarm. As for the clip - I've never used them - you can easily pluck out for testing and besides being free to float if you in fact stuck a chicken or ham with the longer stem you could tell when the dome went down.

    RRP,[p]Cool idea! Now where is my boy's old wooden train set?
  • GrillMeister,
    hmmm I don't have any kids but there are plenty of them in the neighborhood. Maybe I will look around the neighboorhood for kids you leave their toys outside. I figure I would be teaching them a valuable lesson of putting their toys away and get a the wooden wheel for the egg. Sounds like a win win ;)

    GrillMeister,
    49 cents in a artsy-craftsy store for a 2" one - otherwise 50 years from now your kid will be at Antique Road Show and they will tell him his old wooden train would have worth a kaillion dollars if only that wheel wasn't missing!
