Dome hole plug upgrade

<p />I am an advocate of removing temp guage after cooking. I have in the past suggested using a roof nail to place into dome hole and bring thermometer inside after cook. I am sorry for those that have burned their fingertips on the hot nail. I share your pain. I have upgraded my dome hole with a golf tee thanks to a forum member tip a couple of weeks back. Hardest part of this project was getting to golf bag in corner of garage behind all of the junk from the summer. I am hoping this upgrade will be my last. This is a good project for the so called "Dog days of Winter".


  • Charbon,[p]Is that a wood golf tee? Anyone else use a wood tee? Any danger it swells and gets stuck?

    I do believe it was I who posted that suggestion as the tees are what I've used for several years. As for swelling - I've never had the problem - afterall those tees are painted and get rained on, but wouldn't be underwater.

    I thought i figured out the golf tee thing. Behind again. Darn

    smokinsop, LOL - I'm not really laying claim to the initial idea - who could ever prove that?!!! But what I was taking credit to was his reference to "a forum member tip a couple of weeks back" and that was my response during a thread on water getting trapped in the thermometer etc. Oh well...
