Sweetmarias.com sells this one for $30.|
I just plug the lead into my meter when I start roasting.
When I had my TC apart for shaft replacement, I noticed |
a very convenient location to mount a thermocouple...
Underneath the original thermostat that operates the heating element.
I've disabled my heating element, otherwise, this could be very unsafe!
The Ceramic backed thermostat holds the thermocouple securely in place.
I cut a small notch in the base for the wire to pass through without
getting pinched. I also added a zip tie to the wire to act as strain relief.
