It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

foggy thermometer

Okay, I know this has been on here before, but I'm cooking now and just realized my on-dome thermometer is fully fogged with condensation. Been really humid here in N. ATL and I need suggestions as how to dry it out.
It's always had a little in there, but it is really full now. Thanks in advance.

    Apparently, you can drill a small hole in the bottom and it will help keep it clear. Otherwise, take it into the A/C so it can dry out.

    I have the same problem. I read online to put it the fridge for 24 hrs. Did that, and the moisture returned days later.

    My original BGE thermometer was always fogged up.  I finally decided to buy a Tel-Tru -- made no difference, that one is always fogged as well.  I plan to do the drill trick on it this weekend.  My understanding is you drill the hole along the rim at 6:00 o'clock.

    Try placing the item in the back window of a very hot car.  Have done this twice with cell phones that fell into the pool, battery removed and a few thermometers.  Check 24 hours later.  Some say place in dry rice for 24 hours?

    @Richard Fl, and the moisture does not return? Even with the weather that we have been having the last couple of days?

    Don't know where you live, but I have never had to revisit the issue.  Course I keep my lady friend away from the pool with her cell.

    @Richard, Saint Augustine here and we have been experiencing Andrea the last couple of days-lots of rain. Thought by your handle name, you were in the state as well.

    Put it in a ziplock bag with uncooked rice.

    Here is a link to an old post where I posted a picture of where I drilled my thermometer. It doesn't get cloudy anymore and works fine.
