Topic: thermapen and iRoast 2 a little more info (2 msgs / 72 lines)
1) From: Rbt Tut
if you look at the thermapen site:http://www.thermoworks.com/products/thermapen/tpen_home.htmlyou sill see that the thin steel probe swings out and then is "on"
and no id do not work for Thermapen  but its one of the best items in my
kitchen.  next to Home Roast!
you drill a hole = to its diameter into the stainless steel chaff collector
about 1 " into the collector including the distance from the black plastic
that holds it
make this measurement yourself carefully as you see there is only 3/8 "
leaway down into the roasting chamber
take out the chaff collector and you see this gap into the roasting chamber.
use a sharp bit and make sure you mark the collector w a felt pen at that
measurement and take your time drilling permendicular to the dome:  its not
strait up and down at this point.  consider eye proitection so you don't get
those steel bits in your eye!
use a smaller bit on the screen in the plastic/sceen top when you then see
where your hole is in the chaff collector from the complete top
in my picture of the thermapen you can see it "probing" down into the bean
mass area
good luck! works much better for me than the flexible probe and does not
need to be preplaced!
if I can be of any more help pls let me know
Happy exact temp roasting!

Agree, Thermapens are a great super fast response thermometer, been using
one for years. (Uh, on my second one.)
Note: do NOT play with them TOO much TOO long TOO close to a TEC Infrared
Grill on high (ie ~1000f). Rest assured, not only is the grill temp out of
range but the Thermapen body will melt:-)
