Wired probe question

If using a wired probe like a QB2, Does it mess up the gasket? Or do ya go through the top?


  • It's not a problem to run it between the top and bottom gasket.
  • it doesnt make a permanent dent in the gasket ?


  • I'm not familiar with a QB2 but I use a Maverick with meat and smoker probes.  The probe wires are relatively small and flat.  The gasket seams to seal around them just fine when the lid is closed and I haven't seen any evidence of a permanent dent.  I also use that PartyQ temperature controller that has a smoker probe.  No problem with that either.

    I just did a cook with three wired meat probes and one pit probe. No problems.

  • How do you like the PartyQ?
  • I have really enjoyed it so far.  I wanted to start with something easy to operate...just wanted something to keep temps constant for long butt cooks...and didn't want to pay for a more elaborate controller.  It has been great and worked perfectly so far.

    My only suggestion so far is to make the alligator clip for the temp probe just a little bigger so that you could clip it to a rib rack...I cant for the rib rack that I use.
