Does the clamp that comes with the BGE dome thermometer fit on the outside of the egg or on the inside of the egg? Thanks. Ray

It is supposed to go on the inside, but some folks have taken to putting them on the outside to keep the stem of the thermometer from penetrating too far into the egg and touching the food. Personally, I've stopped using them. I don't see a need to keep it clamped in place and they can be a b*tch to remove if you let a lot of crud build up on them and the stem. I just insert the thermometer in the hole and leave it like that. If you are really concerned about the length of the stem, then you can buy some thermometers from Tel-Tru that have 2.5 inch stems. These appear to be very good thermometers and worth the money. ($19).[p]TNW

I wouldn't bother to use it. I don't think there is any danger of it falling out.[p]A quick trick is to turn the thermometer so that the temp you want is at the top of the dial. That way you can check your temp from a distance. When the needle is straight up, you're @ temp. Works great.
The Naked Whiz,
I agree with you. I have both the 5 and 21/2 stems/probes; however I also use a wine cork cut in to on the outside of the egg as well to keep the temp guage off the egg. It gets a better reading in my opinion.
