I did a pizza cook this weekend. While waiting for my large to come up to temp, my BGE dome thermo was telling me 400. It was still telling me 400 a few minutes later when flames were roaring out the top! Being the smart guy I am, I figured the dome thermo is VERY inaccurate. I've seen the Tel-Tru brand name bounced around here from time to time and I decided to look them up. They offer for the BGE 3.5 inch stem models and 5 inch stem models. I pulled my dome thermo from my large and discovered it's 3.5 inches. I bought it this summer from a dealer so I'm not impressed with the quality. Out of curiosity, I pulled the dome thermo out of my small and discovered it too is a 3.5 inch model.
What I'm asking advice about is 1) What size thermo is correct for the large? 2) Are Tel-Tru's thermo better than the BGE's thermo? 4) Are they the best on the market for a replacement? 3) Is there a digital model out there that replaces the dome thermo? I like digital.
Thanks for your advice.
If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious shit!
