AUBER ... important read
« on: June 16, 2014, 08:07:32 PM »
Well folks... I figured out my error.

I have been placing my smoker probe on the grate. Every once in a while it drops down. Well... I have gone through three probes now.  Turns out you can cook these puppies to an open circuit if they make their way too close (or on) the heater element.

So today... I ordered the permanent mount for a sleeker and more error proof setup.

Just a heads up... This has summed up to be an expensive learning process for me. 

Better luck to those who read this....

Great tip, Steve - sorry it was so costly a lesson for you!  You'll love the permanent probe!

Err... By costly I mean stubborn... Each time thinking I'd be less clumsy the next.

It is not a worry at all... I only share for others to learn.
