Best Smoking Tip of the Day!
Thu, 06/9/11 4:12 PM
I've been struggling with how to accurately measure the temperature inside my Gas Grill when I use it for Smoking meat. The thermometer on the lid is not very accurate. laying a digital probe meat thermometer on the grate isn't accurate------Then I got this tip from www.smoking-meat.com
"You can use a digital probe meat thermometer
with the probe stuck all the way through a potato. Set the potato with the probe sticking out level horizontally on the grate to give you the correct internal temperature." It's one of those slap yourself on the forehead kinda revelations and you ask yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?" Jeff@smoking-meat.com
also puts out a good, free newsletter if you're interested.
He does pimp his rub and sauce recipes but his info and Smoking techniques are pretty good.
I've made the rub and it's good.
Please feel free to add your own tips & tricks to this thread.
