  • why do you foil your thermometer?  I have the same one and don't do that.  Does it hurt the wire or something leaving it exposed?

    The foil just adds a layer of heat protection to the cable-run.  I would guess it prolongs life but no proof-BTW-I foil mine.  FWIW-

  • Good luck with that nice looking brisket, soon going to be some good eating to be had at your house.

    @hugeeineo - foil does a couple of things, it helps keep moisture and heat away from the cable probe junction, and after a number of low and slows the cable can get pretty grungy, lot easier to change the foil than try and clean the cable.

    I'm not sure the foil helps prolong the life of the probe, but on the off chance it does, it's cheap and easy to do.  It's more important to keep the probes over one of the platesetter legs rather than over the direct heat.

    And into the cooler it goes.  205 IT, and the probe went in like buttah.
