I ordered a bunch from a bbq supply guy who sells a bunch of his items on ebay, hinges therms, etc - cracked a couple and need new ones

Any recomendations on a place that has reputable therms, I need about 4 of them for a 150 gallon offset.

Thanks

Sig-

I got flow in the dark Tel-Tru's and I don't think I'd pay for that next time. If its dark, you're gonna Need a flashlight to see them IMHO.

Just get the regular ones....

I just keep a mini-mag flashlight hooked to my belt. I've bought from kck.com also, and will again.

I buy all my stuff from Bob at kck. Main reason is Im close and have it within a day or two from order. Cant beat his customer service and he is a he!! of a nice guy Cool

The therms...I have a bud who has them on his, he complains about them being harder to read in the bright sunlight and says it was a waste of money because he barely cooks at night Confused

thanks folks, I do most of my cooking at night now and dont know which way I should go as I am just getting started in a small bbq catering biz.

I have no complaints with KCK they have been nice and the lady who I have dealt with there and he guy have been helpfull and quick to ship.

What size stems would you guys use, I also noticed I have 6 different size stems which is weird since I ordered all of the same therms lol but they have been sitting in the boxes for a year and I haven't really checked.

On my main chamber I have Tel-Tru's 3" dial and 6" stems.

I like 5" dial bimetal therms personally. I've used several brands and sizes and I've found I like the features and price of ProSense brand from Automation Direct best.

On the rare occasions I have still been cooking into the night, I used a magnetic base ultra bright led light on my cooker. It also worked for my blasphemous quick peek. If I were constantly going into the night I would install digital therms and be able to check from wherever I was relaxing. So no, never found a need. JM2CW
