Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Probe routing

Has anyone ever tried routing their temp probe down between the base of the egg and the fire ring/box and out the draft door?  I officially torched my one week old gasket last night and I'm thinking of going gasketless, but I don't necessarily want to smash my probe wire between the dome and base.  I can always go out the DFMT, but I thought down through the bottom might be simpler--- and less in the way.  Of course, I haven't checked the length I'd need going that way.  By the way, this question is for low/slow.....

    As long as you are not pinching the wire, I don't foresee any issues. other than it may make it difficult to close the vent completely. All you can do is give it a try and report back how well/poorly it worked out...

    I've gone "no gasket" for 5 years... just lay probe wires on lip and close dome... no problem...
    don't over think the cook - that take all the fun out.
