Pizza Plate Temp

What are you using to test this temp?  I'm curious. 

Thanks for any help!

    I don't have one...but I think most folks use an IR (infrared) thermometer to measure surface temp of a pizza stone.  




    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I have my heart set on a Fluke... http://www.amazon.com/Fluke-MAX-Infrared-Thermometer-Battery/dp/B0089N2ZH6/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1353033068&sr=8-10&keywords=fluke+thermometer but will probably settle for something from Harbour Freight

    I actually think I'd use it for other things around the house - like tracking leaks in the duct work so I can tape it, finding out if that gap in the front door is letting cold in, how much cold air is coming from the medicine cabinet in the upstairs bathroom.

  • Seems perfectly reasonable.  Medicine cabinets can be leading contributors to whole house energy inefficiency.

    Not to mention Prego Test kits.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Can you explain that to SWMBO?  In our house (a backsplit - half the medicine cabinet backs are in the lower house attic.  Some mornings my deodorant gives an nice chill.    :))

  • In truth, if you have a platesetter spacers and the stone, the pizza stone will be the same as your dome temp, give or take a few.
