In Reply to: Smoker Thermometers posted by Lazy Bacon BBQ on May 24, 2011 at 15:42:09:
My experience has been that smoke will stick to almost anything put in its way. I use Taylor dial (bimetal) thermometers...that will either hang from or sit on your racks. They have glass covering the dial itself and when it turns brown, I take some Dawn dish soap on a sponge to it. If that doesn't work or only partially, I try some Zed, Dutch Cleanser or such, and if that doesn't work, I move up to a toughie (Tuffy?), and if that doesn't work, I take some steel wool to it. That always works but I'm careful about not scratching the glass.
If you use a liquid thermometer and try to use steel wool to remove the smoke from the glass tube, I can almost garantee that you'll remove the temperature numbers along with the smoke on the glass. Don't ask me how I know. LOL. Good Q'en On Ya'. John
