How I Check Probe Calibration

This might seem obvious to some but I'm pretty simple minded. I check all my temp probes at least once a year. Couple years ago I grabbed a piece of scrap plywood and drilled a hole in it. I get a small pan of water up to a rolling boil, dial back the flame some to keep the radiant heat from the sides to a minimum, then lay this across the top. It fits fairly snug so you can control the depth of the probe tip. BTW, this probe was reading 30 degrees low when I first checked it.

    Pretty cool. Mine was 30 low last time too.

    Nice jig! I just held mine with a hot mitt, but that would sure be easy. Mine surprisingly was right on when I checked it when new last summer. Got lucky I guess. Have to check it again soon.
