Topic: BBQ Drum Thermometer Installation (6 msgs / 289 lines)
1) From: Jeremy DeFranco
Eddie and/or Les and/or Ken,
     Eddie/Les: Would one of you please take a picture of the thermocouple
probe placement? What are you using to keep the probe in place? I would like
to be sure what I am getting into before drilling any holes in my BBQ. Sorry
to cause an inconvenience, but I really would appreciate your help : )
     Ken: I would rather have a probe that is situated within the bean mass,
but I do not follow your instructions. I am using an RK drum. Is this what
you are using? How do you prevent the thermocouple wire from spinning
around, and getting all tangled up everytime you roast? What type of
thermocouple probe are you using (general stock probe, high temp w/insulated
wire, high temp w/metal probe on end,etc.)? I would be willing to offer you
a $15 SM gift certificate if you would borrow someone's digital camera to
take pics to email or upload somewhere, or if you use a disposable one (I
don't know if they make these... If disposable costs more, might be able to
offer a slightly higher denomination gift certificate).
Thank you all very much for your help, Jeremy

Solid Stainless steel.  I will be building a similar model with  
perfed SS in the near future and will be conducting comparisons

Justin,
     I have to say I am completely dumfounded by the drawing, but thanks for
making the effort! You say you fish the TC into the roast chamber. You must
fish the thermocouple probe in through exact center of side wall of drum I
assume to keep thermocouple wire from spinning in circles, and causing a
tangled mess?? I don't think I can do this with my drum, because exact
center of both side walls= rotisserie spit rod. Jeremy
