Temp. Gauge

Just bent my temp. gauge to the point of no return on a large dutch oven, full of Reds Brunswick Stew, are there any replacements other than the BGE gauge? One maybe with a shorter probe, larger dail, etc.
Currently using my Polder with what seems to be excellent results.

    Mark, Sorry to hear about the stem on your thermometer. Maybe thats a good reason to use either the metal clip on the exterior for height adjustments. I find the same problem with other accessories when added to the BGE.
    Part of the game I guess is to make mental notes of "doo dah stuff first" with the thermometers. If you need a emergency spot to test for temp, use the dome slots on the daisy wheel. I find very little difference from that to the original dome access hole.
    I just close the daisy tight to the stem. Plenty of air for low and slow cooks. Wider if you need it for higher temps.
    Tim M had a source for a short stem thermometer..e.mail him.
