Temp probes, where do you put them in?

Hey guys,

My only cook I decided to put my temp probes in through the top daisy wheel. How do most people insert their temp probes into their eggs? I worry about the gasket crushing the wire and shorting it out... anyone got suggestions other than the daisy wheel? Thanks!

    your gasket will compress adequately to protect your cable.

    I put mine in the meat B)

    I have one of those kewlie-neato remote probes so I don't have to go outside to see the temp.

    Just shove it into the thickest part of the meat (not touching any bone!). The cable will be fine.

    Cheers and happy egging! :woohoo:

    Oh, I know *where* they go, just meant what point of entry do you use to get inside the egg. I was worried that lid would crush my wires, that's all.

    As was mentioned, your wires will be fine between the gaskets. That won't cause any problem, although cooks above 400* will damage most probe wires unless they are upgraded models.

    Yeah, I really only use probes for 350 or less, and even then I have high heat probes with foil around em.

    Mike, you here in Austin? I am down South
